Tula Style: Monochrome and Distressed Looks

When we are exploring what styles we want to include in our various collections of Tula products, we often look to current fashion for mom and baby. The distressed monochromatic look is one of our favorite for all seasons and we see it popping in different variations including clothing, accessories, nursery items and more. We put together some tips for perfecting a simple distressed look with your baby carriers, that will have you and baby looking super chic!

1. Choose One Distressed Item…

and work your outfit around it. For instance, if you have some amazing distressed jeans you’re looking to wear, pick a sophisticated monochrome Tula like Twiggy, Arbol or Love Noir Ring Sling to finish out the look.

2. Choose a Distressed Carrier…

… and do the opposite! A carrier like Wild Hearts or Jet with some distressing and texture will look great with a solid, dark denim chambray and a pair of black skinnies!

3. Add a pop of color!

All distressed monochromes will look great with a bright pop of color! Match your Jet carrier with a bright red lipstick, your Wild Hearts with a royal blue top, wear your Asteria with a bold red, or your blanket with a bright yellow jumpsuit for baby. Anything goes!

4. Or don’t, and keep it a cool monochrome.

The all black, white and gray look is the easiest way to look cool. Keep your shirt a neutral solid, throw on Jet, and let the print do all the talking.

5. Accessorize!


Pull the look together with accessories! Add in a matte black diaper bag, a little sparkle with a simple earring , and a solid black shoe. Don’t forget your coordinating Splatter Jet Blanket, and you’ve mastered your distressed look.

Show us your photos of how you wear your distressed monochrome by tagging us on Instagram, for a chance to be featured on our Instagram and our style boards on Pinterest!

My pick for a great dad carrier is Jet the all canvas carrier by Baby Tula. It’s sleek clean design and modern plus sign print match well with almost anyone’s style. This budget-friendly alternative to the popular wrap conversion style is a welcomed addition to the Tula line up and has the same handmade touch. Favorite features of mine include Tula mainstays such as the generous pocket on the waist belt, removable hood, and perfect fit adjusters.

canyon-leaf-amberCanyon Leaf Amber

Baltic Amber has had a huge affect on me as a person and the way I parent. It has been you for thousands of years to treat many ailments. When you wear amber jewelry it warms with your body's heat and you absorb the healing benefits of the succinic acid through the skin. It helps to relieve all kinds of aches and pains from teething in babies to headaches and arthritis in adults. In light of its natural nature, it is safe for all ages. Fossilized Sunlight as it is commonly referred to, amber accelerates our natural ability to heal, reduces inflammation, and may even help alleviate the symptoms of respiratory ailments. There is nothing like that I have found in the way of natural healing that even comes close to the results of Certified Baltic Amber. Handmade by mother nature and preserved for millions of years and no one crafts quite like Nicole from Canyon Leaf Collection. Her artfully designed pieces are so well made you almost forget you are wearing something good for you. This bracelet is a mainstay in my life that I'd feel lost without.

ecovesselEcoVessel Growler "The Boss"

I use this spectacular stainless steel growler to do so many things I have lost count, so much now that I own 3. One that I use strictly to fill at a growler bar to have craft beer for the day, another for fun alcoholic concoctions such as sangria or fruit infused vodka, and the last for coffee, YES coffee! With an included removable stainless steel infuser, you have the option of adding the flavors of fresh fruit to your drinks or making the most amazing cold brew coffee. If you’re a tea person like my wife the infuser can be filled with leaves and the Boss will be your favorite tea maker.

This growler features our vacuum TriMax® triple insulation technology and has been tested to keep liquids cold for 36 hours and hot up to 8 hours. Its dual use leak-proof top has a wide opening for easy filling and a small opening for easy drinking. A versatile vessel for anything, anytime, anyplace! Even southern summers!

beard-oil-elevated-mens-earl-gray-bodycare-naturalElevated Beard Oil by the makers of Balm Baby

Every good beard needs a good beard oil and trust me I have run through my share of duds. The Elevated Beard Oil, however, hits it out of the park with it all natural ingredients and ability to both moisturize and heal. Both vegan and cruelty-free, it helps maintain a healthy shiny beard while reconstructing damaged hairs and pores. I fancy the Earl G scent, or should I say my wife does and that's what really matters!

jjb-bagJu-Ju-Be Helix Bag

JuJuBe in their quest to create bags for the whole family really rounded out their lineup with the new Helix bag for Dads. With a traditional JuJuBe interior, I went with the new Chrome exterior for a change of pace. Lighter weight, yet still durable and scuff resistant the Chrome bag is a breath of fresh air to the usual “Dad Bag” types. Still a messenger bag with fully adjustable strap and changing pad, it transitions to straight up business in no time. Holding a 13” laptop, phone, keys, wallet, chargers, and 2 fleece pockets great for sunglasses. If safe to say the days of 16 pocketed camo bags and just a plain old backpack are gone!
