Colour doesn't have to be scary!

How to wear a monochromatic outfit

Monochromatic it’s a bit of a scary word, right? But when you break it down mono means one and chromatic means colour. One colour. The idea of wearing one colour head to toe might seem a bit imitating but if you know how to do it right you can look like you just hopped off a New York runway.

TWO-TONED LOOK

Just because you are wearing one colour doesn’t mean you have to wear head to toe the same shade of blue. Change it up a little bit mix and match different shades and tones for a look that looks structured and fun at the same time.

MATCHING SETS

Matching sets are a godsend when you want to look put together but really, you’re having a crisis (we’ve all been there right?). They perfectly fit into the monochromatic look while also being comfy and fun. Matching sets are a monochromatic look you can wear every day, to the gym, to the supermarket, whenever!

EARTH TONES

Really monochromatic is all about standing out. However, if you’re just breaking into the monochromatic look and aren’t sure about going all out that’s also fine. There are plenty of ways you can stick to the monochromatic trend and still feel like you. Maybe give earth tones a try. It’s subtle but still giving monochromatic. You’ll be looking like your favourite celeb in no time. PS Kim k is the queen of monochromatic earth tones.

A BRIGHT STATEMENT

Maybe you’re the opposite and are looking for ways to make your looks stand out more. Well, monochromatic is great for that as well! Go all out with bright blues and pinks. If you’re really feeling brave you could even go for a neon look.

DON'T FORGET THE SHOES!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is important to remember just how important shoes are to finish a look. Everyone looks it you’re wearing a ballgown and thongs. With a monochromatic look, you’ll ruin everything if you wear odd shoes. Shoes can make or break a look so be careful.
