Going monochromes is one of the best ways to look classy, clean, and on point. If you don’t know the monochrome style, well it is basically putting an outfit together using the same color. Now if you think about it, you may have randomly put the same color pieces together not realizing you have created a monochromatic outfit in the past. I know I have done it plenty of times with the color black.
But it’s not that easy. It is not just about putting the same color together, there are certain rules and tricks that come with this. And in this blog, I am going to explain how to create monochromatic outfits for fall. Keeping reading below to learn how to ace a monochrome look!
1. Look for Similar Colors
Now I know I said it has to be the same color but we are not literally looking for the SAME color. For example, if you are going for red, you can take different tones of red and put them together. If you are new to monochromes, start with colors like black, white, blue, or grey. And if you feel those are not your colors and you are bold enough to rock other colors, then dig straight into red, green, champagne, etc. Either way, start digging your wardrobe and sort out colors to start putting monochromes together.
2. Texture Don’t Matter
Now here comes one of the most important rules of monochromes which is to play with textures. You don’t want to stick to the same visual depth instead you are adding different textures to make the outfit pop. Otherwise, monochromes will be straight boring. Skim through your wardrobe and look for different textures like wool, silk, leather, cotton, velvet, etc.
3. Find a Balance
It is so important to find a balance because you don’t want the outfit to overtake you. For example, if you are wearing a loose sweater, then pair it with fitted bottoms. Or if you are wearing a loose dress, pair it with a fitted jacket/coat. If you think about it, this goes for every outfit not just monochromes.
As this blog post is about monochrome fall outfits, make sure to find coats and jackets that complement your first layer. Don’t go overboard and stick to your style. This will help you stay safe with a monochrome style.
4. Know When Not To Go Too Far
This is a very important tip as well which is not to go too far. If you are coming across textures, don’t just keep adding them to your look. For example, if you are wearing a skirt and sweater top, you don’t need to go above and beyond to find monochrome stockings. Or if you are wearing the color green, you don’t need green boots. Stick to neutral boots. I find that accessories do not matter as much as long as you are good with the clothing pieces. It is also not important to over-accessorize, I have learned my lesson on accessories a long while back. Stay true to your style and remember less is more!
