Mindy Kaling goes breezy and monochromatic with her latest look.

“The Mindy Project” actress is known for her vivacious and bold fashion choices that are typically filled with designer duds and accessories. In a photoset she posted to Instagram yesterday, Kaling reveals in the caption that she has not being a fan of earth tones and monochromatic dressing, but now that Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and others have made it on-trend, she thought that she would give it a try.

For the ensemble, Kaling donned a flowy brown crocheted dress that featured breezy sleeves and a ruffled neckline. When it came down to the shoes, Kaling slipped on a pair of nude, according to her skin tone, sandals from Stuart Weitzman. “Do I look nude to you?” she asked her followers. 

Kaling has an innovative, fashion-forward fashion voice that makes strong, powerful statements both on the screen and off.  She tends to dabble in garments that have interesting prints or graphics, edgy dresses, flowy separates and fun sweaters. Some of the designers who grace her closet and Instagram feed alike are Autumn Adeigbo, Rodarte and Chanel. For footwear, she has an affinity for wearing silhouettes from brands such as Miu Miu, Kate Spade, Sophia Webster and Tory Burch.

When she’s feeling glitzy or saunters down red carpets, the “Inside Out” actress pops in stellar gowns from heralded brands like Oscar de la Renta, Alex Perry and Dolce & Gabbana.

Put on a pair of brown pumps and add a subtle earth-tone elevation to your outfits.
