A stylish and simple way to dress is to invest in a monochromatic wardrobe. Monochromatic is often achieved with neutrals such as black, gray, white, and cream. This fashion trend maximizes your wardrobe because it allows you far more opportunities to mix and match your clothing and accessories.
While you might be dressed in head to toe gray or white, avoid the temptation to be full on matchy matchy—and opt for shades of the color you have chosen. Remember, layering is key with monochrome, so aim for 3 to 5 items at a time. For example, jeans, tank, cardigan, and scarf.
Mix Your Monochromatic Colors
No need to dress in head to toe one monochrome color family, instead—wear black and white, white and gray, cream and gray, or any combination that works.
Yes, You Can Wear Prints
Just because you prefer a monochromatic wardrobe doesn’t mean you can’t wear stripes, print, polka dots, patterns, and graphics.
Fun Pops Of Color
Even if your base wardrobe is monochrome, add in a bit of color in your tie, pocket square, footwear, outerwear, blouse, scarf, shoes, leggings, socks, jewelry or handbag.
Texture Is A Must
Any successful monochromatic look must have a combination of texture. Texture can be achieved by wearing any mix of leather, knit, lace, cotton jersey, sequins, velvet, silk, denim, linen, faux fur, and more.
Your monochromatic wardrobe can be anything you want, chic, timeless, or edgy!
