Monochromatic outfits are much easier to pull off than a lot of people realise. In fact, many people pull of this look on a regular basis without even realising it – I mean, what’s an all black outfit called? … Yep! it’s a Monochromatic outfit too!
That said, today’s post isn’t about how to style an all black look. Rather, it’s focused on something a bit more daring – Coloured Monochromatic looks. While I do appreciate the fact that it’s really easy to pull off an all black look rather than styling a colour like Mustard, Red and the likes, it’s honestly much easier than you think.
Don’t believe that statement? Here’s a quick guide on how to put together the perfect non-black monochromatic outfit and slay!
#1 Pick a colour your comfortable with
You’re probably thinking why is this important but trust me, it’s the most important step. Before deciding to go all monochrome, you must choose a colour you’re comfortable with. This is because when wearing one colour head to toe, you need a lot of confidence to accompany your ensemble. Confidence in your outfit only comes when you’re comfortable with your look. So pick a colour that you won’t mind styling from top to bottom!
#2 Stick to one colour shade
This is actually not a hard and fast rule as you can indeed mix up different shades within the same colour family. However, that’s the sort of thing we leave to the fashion experts. So if you’re a beginner in styling monochromatic outfits, it’s best to stick to the same shade of your colour of choice; ESPECIALLY when mixing two pieces together (i.e. a Skirt and Top or Trousers and a Top)
#3 Do not match up your accessories
It is very important that you don’t try to match your shoes, handbag or other accessories to your outfit. Sometimes it works but MOST TIMES it doesn’t. It is therefore best to stay away from being ‘matchy-matchy’ with your accessories as well.a
Break up your look by wearing a different coloured shoe that still compliments your outfit. Carry a bag that’s just as stylish but doesn’t match the colour of your ensemble. The only exception to this rule might be smaller accessories like rings and earrings but if you choose to match your ring or earrings to your look, make sure you go for simple styles – Less is More in this case.
Now that you’ve got these tips, go into the world of fashion and slay your way through!
Until next time!
