The 'HOW to Monochrome' Series Part 3: Accentuate the Good!

Hey bellas, Let's get straight to the meat and be more practical today!

You first start by selecting the color you want to wear, making sure it’s one that looks great against your skin tone and hair, and that you feel comfortable in. The worst thing you can do is wear a color that doesn’t make your skin glow or dampens your mood in any way.

 

Remember balance when combining pieces. This is a rule for every outfit, not just monochromatic ones. You don’t want the one color to overwhelm you. Quite the contrary, you want it to make you look tall and lean. To achieve this, play with proportions. For example, if you’re wearing a billowy top, make sure to pair it with fitted bottoms. With a full A-line skirt wear a form-fitting top. The same holds true with the bulkier sweater I am wearing above; I paired it with skinny jeans and the fitted turtleneck.

 

 

As for me, I played with texture and movement with the Rose Bell Sleeve Ribbed Sweater and I paired it with the glossy Bandage Pencil Skirt called 'Savannah'. My bag was a little darker with a wine red and to balance it all, I complete the look with the 'Classy' nude stilletos! All Items can be found on the website!

Monochromatic outfits are also great for petites. Dressing monochromatically can make you appear taller and slimmer because the outfit is creating one seamless line from head to toe. Try it and see!

I hope this post has helped you understand what monochromatic is and how it can be applied to an outfit. Next time you’re putting together your stylish outfit remember the style tips from this post!
