There’s a new way to play with color in your wardrobe and it does not involve the ever-so-popular “blocking” method. Believe it. Embrace your inner showstopper and say hello to the monochromatic trend. You’re probably thinking, “mono-what-a”? Don’t let the name fool you. This trend is anything but complicated: Rock one color (or shades of it) from head to toe!
From pastels in spring to rich jewel tones in fall, we continue to see monochromatic looks on runways and red carpets alike. Each season brings a new spin on the trend. There is no question: Designers are having fun and making statements.
Fashionistas have flocked to the one-color outburst, some going as far as matching each accessory! Don’t get me wrong, I love a great bold statement color; but it doesn’t have to involve crazy hues. Donned on runways and in the streets, fashion bloggers, celebs, models, and style mavens have taken this trend to the next level. And are looking fabulous doing so, obviously.
To achieve your best monochromatic look, always remember to pick colors that compliment. The easiest way to rock this trend is to start with black or white, shown by Emily and Blair above. Next start to work with different colors. Pair lighter hues of the color on top and darker shades on bottom or vice versa. This approach won’t overpower or scare you. Once you feel more comfortable, step out of that box and try a head-to-toe bold color! It’s all about making a statement, whether it’s with a neutral pink or a vibrant cobalt blue. Baby steps, baby steps!
