Monochrome means one color. A monochromatic outfit consists of pieces from one color family. The color I chose for this monochromatic outfit was pink. I’ve had these shoes for a while now and just happened to spot this simple dress in the exact same color at a boutique near my house.
You don’t have to wear the exact same texture and shade from head to toe. The fun thing about monochromatic outfits is that you can play with texture, pattern, and different shades without looking too extreme. I decided to add a blush pink purse to break up the darker rose colors in my outfit. I also liked that the shoes had a nice laser cut detail.
Here are a few tips I have for styling a Monochromatic outfit:
COLOR: Make sure the color you pick is a color you look and feel good in. Although I love mustard yellow, I think I would feel uncomfortable wearing an outfit consisting of just mustard yellow hues. Neutral colors like gray, navy blue and black are usually my go-to colors.
TEXTURE & PATTERN: It’s easy to play with texture and pattern with monochromatic outfits because the colors naturally play tie everything together. Try playing with fun textures like bulky sweaters, sequined skirts, or fur vests. Adding a fun checkered pattern or stripes is always a nice way to spice things up. If it’s in the same color family, there are no limits.
BALANCE & PROPORTION: Balance is everything when it comes to styling any outfit. If you are wearing loose billowy pants, then you may want to pair that with a tighter top. Try balancing out statement pieces with lots of texture or pattern with basic pieces.
