HOW TO NAIL THE MONOCHROMATIC LOOK?

Share:

 A monochrome outfit consists of a few different pieces of clothing that are all in different shades of the same color – or just the same color throughout. So, for example, it could be dark blue jeans with a light blue shirt and a blue-ish white pair of sneakers It sounds easy to master, and it basically is, but it can sometimes be a little trickier than you would think. The joy of the monochromatic style is wearing different shades and tints from the same color palette and styling them confidently by adding various patterns, textures, accessories etc.

STYLING TIPS

MIX TEXTURES

Make sure you mix different textures when styling a monochromatic look. You must incorporate visual interest, significance, and depth to your look so it's not one-dimensional or debilitating. Some textures that look amazing when mixed together are denim and chiffon, silk and leather, calfskin and cotton, relaxed cowhide and silk, wool and sequins, denim and denim, leather and wool etc.

ACHIEVE BALANCE

Make sure to create a balance between your clothing pieces when styling a monochromatic look.  You don’t want that one color to overwhelm you.  Monochromatic outfits can make you look very stylish and put together but if not styled properly it can lead to making you look skimpy and fat. For example, with a full A-line skirt, instead of wearing a full sleeve lose top or a sweater wear a tight fitted crop top or a Bardot to achieve that perfect balance.

HIGHLIGHT THE RIGHT AREAS

Emphasize the right regions of your body using the correct color.  When wearing a same color in different shades and tints, you have to concentrate on how diminish or light each piece is.  For example: If you have wide hips and need to deemphasize them, you shouldn’t wear light colored pants or skirt. Similarly, if you want to make your waist look slimmer then you should opt for a darker shade for your top or blouse.

ADD A TOUCH OF PATTERN

You do not have to only wear solid colors when styling a monochromatic look. Adding patterns to your outfit can make you look very interesting and chic. To add visual intrigue and to separate the strong squares of shading, include a print piece comprised of a similar shading you're working with. You can similarly try adding a textured shawl or scarf for no specific explanation.
