How I Am Wearing My Monochromatic Outfit And How You Can Too

Tried to rock a monochromatic outfit? I hope you loved it because I am totally serving looks in my monochromatic outfit!

But let’s start from the basics…

What Is A Monochromatic Outfit?

From history, ‘mono’ means ‘one’ while ‘chromo’ means ‘light’. When the two words are combined, the word ‘mono-chromo’ means ‘one light’. Essentially, a monochromatic outfit is an ensemble where you wear one color look.

But this does not mean that you just have to boringly wear a color like red or blue. To add a visual interest, you should try out these tips that will ensure your monochromatic look is the hottest one around.

1. Learn your skin tone.

Fashionistas say that in order to look expensive, one of the easiest tip to try out is mastering the art of going monochromatic. It might seem so easy to wear all beige but I dare you, wear it so plainly and you’ll bore yourself too.

Good enough, here is one tip to look good in monochromes. First, know your skin tone.

So what is your skin tone?

Your skin tone or undertone is the shade of your skin, normally different from your complexion. While complexion changes in the sunny or cold months, your undertone remains the same.

Once you have known your skin tone and the colors that blend well with it, you can always experiment with as much colors to find those that suit you well.

2. Pick a color you want to rock.

Remember that colors have different shades so you can group them according to their resemblance as you find good pairs for each other.

3. Try different colors of similar color backgrounds

I mean, are they neutral colors, bold colors or metallic colors? Try seeing if they pair well, and if they do. Rock them! For example: as much as navy blue and light blue would pair perfectly, you can also try navy blue on grey!

As you embrace different shades, have fun!

4. Mix textures of different outfits.

Looking for a way to add a visual interest and dimension to your look? Get those textures girl! If you want to achieve a sophisticated look, then different textures have to be your best friend!

Talk about a pair of denim jeans with a knitted top, or leather pants paired with a chiffon tops! Amazing!

5. Try prints and patterns

If you want to catch the attention of many in a quizzical look, you should consider buying clothes of different patterns. Plaid pants are trending, floral tops are loved, gingham blazers have it on the streets and leopard prints never disappoint!

Get them girl!

6. Strike a balance

Looking good is hardly on the items you wear. It is all about striking a balance.
Have you ever felt so bulky after wearing an ensemble? I have! One mistake one can do when wearing monochromatic outfits is letting the color overwhelm your body.

Imagine this…

You saw a lady in white shredded pants, chunky over-the-knee boots, a long white coat, large white handbag, a large white sun hat, white sunglasses and a white inner chunky top. Yet she is dark in complexion. Oh my! I wish she would wear the same in grey. I mean the huge mismatch is just so recognizable and would attract all sorts of wrong attention!

Well, balance is not just achieved by striking the balance between the skin tone and the color of the outfits. It is also about the type of designs you’re rocking. If the outfits are so chunky, never overdress. If we use the example above: I would wear a long grey coat that’s belted up then rock the over-the-knee boots. Gorgeous, right?

7. Accentuate your body

Every confident lady has a part of her body she loves most if I’m right. I love my long legs the most so I’m always looking for pants that know how to bring the best of my legs. Talk about skinny or cropped jeans or wide leg pants.

That means that if you love your curves , go for clothes that accentuate them. The same thing goes for those who love their waists, cleavage or arms! For example: use a belt to cinch the waist for structure.
