We’ve seen a lot of trends come and go over the past few years but I think I’ll always have a clear favorite: monochromatic. It’s chic. It’s simple. It’s modern, yet timeless. It works on any and everyone. I’m a fan and I’m about to drop some major styling tips + monochromatic outfit ideas inspiration. Let’s do this.
When it comes to this whole monochromatic thing, I think what I love most is that the trend itself is so versatile. You can rock it to the office, on date night, to brunch, for a casual #ootd or pretty much any “occasion” in between. It’s a trend that I don’t see going anywhere anytime soon which means there’s this timeless feel that still feels super modern and cool. It’s just a good one.
Looking to try the monochromatic look or tried, failed and decided to jus let it go? Here are a few tips for making your one-color wardrobe to life!
- Pick a color and stick within a close range. Let’s say you go with beige. Not everything has to be the same shade of beige. Try a camel coat, light beige sweater and brown boots to break it up and keep the monochrome feel.
- Play around with textures. With an all black look for example, you’ll want to switch up the fabric and textures of each piece. I love the idea of a suede bootie, knit sweater and ripped jeans (a la today’s look).
- Take a chance with prints. Make one piece of the look that aligns with whatever “color” you’ve picked one that has a fun print to it. I once saw a girl wearing a white top with black polka dots, white jeans and a cream coat. It was fun and girly and somehow all worked!
