The 'HOW to Monochrome' Series Part 2: TEXTURES

Hey Bellas, earlier this week I explained to you the basics of Monochrome trends.

Let's talk about Texture now!

I can't stress enough how texture is an important element when putting together monochromatic look. If your monochromatic outfit is all with the same fabric from head to toe, it would likely come off looking flat and boring. Womp Womp. In our haitian culture, we call that 'Ton sur Ton' which means Color on Color!

For the perfect look of the day, make sure you mix textures within your monochromatic outfit! You want to add visual interest, depth, and dimension to your look so it’s not one-dimensional or boring. Some combinations you can try pairing together are denim and chiffon, leather and cotton, suede and silk, wool and sequins. And don’t forget your shoes or boots when it comes to texture.

Next step, we will talk about Accentuating the Good as well as Proportions. Have fun!

Remember the clothes you recently organize by color? It's now time to visualize looks with texture in them!  Have fun!

  • How’s it going, laurienaturopathicdoc?

    OK, I used to be Instagram-famous, too.

    If you are like me, you have trawled Instagram, wondering “how do so many darn people get so rich and famous”?

    I want you to imagine that it’s Friday and you’ve just woken up from a sound slumber.

    You roll over in bed to check your cellphone.

    Navigate your way to your page.

    You‘re surprised at what you see: Over 738 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you can see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures—over 832 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some tea and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Bam! Another 20 likes.

    Here comes another one. This time it is not a like but a message from one of your followers. They flatter you on your success and let you know they love scrolling through your content.

    As you read it, you begin to grin. It is a amazingly attractive person, and they love your posts.

    While you sip your tea, you start typing up a response. But then your phone buzzes.

    Oops, another ping. But no time to reply—you’ve got to hit the gym.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time acquiring what they want in life. People can hardly get themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    I’m going to show you how to take the reigns of your Instagram.

    Imagine if you raised your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it’s not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

    Our super savvy, confidential service quickly sends likes to your images a few minutes after you have posted them.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that far away.

    Sound too good for reality? Just follow these steps to get a taste:
    1. Visit
    2. Enter your Instagram username.
    3. Your 3 most recent pictures will get 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you’ve got to do more than just want it—you’ve got to do something about it. Are you willing?

    Chow for now.
