Monochromatic Outfit Tips
Undoubtedly, one of the biggest style trends out there, monochromatic fashion is everywhere these days. From celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez to Instagram fashionistas floating across our feeds, sticking to one colour is a proven way to look chic and stylish. When done correctly, these monochromatic outfits can be a total hit, as swarms of people will bombard you with style praise. However, this ensemble requires some research, as many people out there fail to execute the look properly. In order for you to make some monochromatic magic yourself, you must first learn the basic DO’s and DON’Ts for this coordinated look. Here are some of our helpful monochromatic outfit tips.
Switch Up The Shades
Although the word “monochromatic” means “one colour,” it does not mean you must stick to the same shade from head to toe. In fact, this is a major fashion no-no when it comes to putting together an outfit. To avoid coming across as a coordinated bore, switch up the shades and try different tints of the colour. Whether it’s going for a lighter shade on top and darker on the bottom or vice versa, switching up the tints ensures you are steering clear of matching too much. If you’re wearing a dress, but still want a monochromatic look, try layering a jacket or women’s cardigan of the same colour on top. We have put together some different shade ensembles to help you execute the monochromatic look flawlessly!

Try Different Textures
Another way to avoid this monochromatic crime is to try different textures. Even if the shade is the same, mixing textures will give the outfit more flow better without looking like you’re wearing an adorable onesie. Some of our favourite texture mixes are denim and cotton, which will make you look anything but basic in blue. Another one of our favourite texture combos is leather and spandex; the ultimate effortlessly edgy look. Do monochromatic fashion right with these mixed textured outfits.
