Monochromatic fashion—keeping it simple. Wearing all articles of clothing in the same color scheme can either look really good… or really bad. Don’t worry. We’re here to help you master the simplest color: white. All white errrrrything! You can’t go wrong with this trend.
When trying out any monochromatic look, it’s important to ensure that each clothing item is at lease almost the same color for the base of the outfit. It’s impossible to be exact here, but try your best to match everything to the best of your ability. However, when it comes to texture, switch it up. Combining different textures all together can be overwhelming, but not if they’re all the same color. It can actually add dimension and help you to accentuate or downplay specific parts of your body. For example, if you have long lean legs, wear some white skinny jeans with a loose white tank top with a vest. This will call attention to your best feature: your legs. The different textures will prevent the look from being too boring as well.
Playing up your own unique body shape with a monochromatic look can be seriously flattering. If you have bigger hips, high wasted jeans or shorts paired with a slimming top all of the same white/cream tone will highlight those features. For added appeal, wear jeans that have rips in them to create even more texture and detail.
Next: add statement pieces. These pieces can be in the form of jewelry, cardigans, sweaters, shoes, or hats. While it is better to choose a white color to stick with the monochromatic theme, a bright color wouldn’t mess up the look. A large blue necklace, a black hat, or even bright shoes could add a lot to your look while keeping the monochromatic white present and obvious. Even a light grey or cream colored sweater would stick with the neutral theme. Don’t be afraid to be bold here.
