3 Ways to Create the Perfect Monochrome Look

As you probably know by now, I love wearing a solid monochrome look!

They’re a no-brainer for me when it comes to getting dressed in the morning AND the easiest way to pack for a trip. You instantly look expensive, put together, and it takes almost no effort! You just matched some colors tones – easy peasy! I feel so sleek and chic when I’m rocking a monochrome outfit, but I recently realized that not all monochrome looks are created equal. There are three variations that I bounce between when creating a look.

So today, I decided to put on my stylist hat on and talk to you all about the 3 ways to create the perfect monochrome look!

 

MATCHING SETS

So this one is a no brainer, but sometimes all you have to do is wear the matching set. This top and trousers are from Nanushka and they look so good together, they could totally pass as a jumpsuit for one look and can be styled differently on their own for separate looks. Not to mention the peachy-apricot color is totally do die for! Perhaps the new nude? I always try to pack at least one matching set like this one when I travel. It’s the easiest way to maximize your wardrobe as you can wear them together or style them in multiple different ways.

COLOR FAMILY

Finding pieces in the same color family as I did with these separates from L'AGENCE is another great way to put together a monochrome outfit. It's basically all about finding pieces within the same color family, so they don't have to be the exact same shade, as long as all the pieces are white, or in this case… red, you're good to go! One of the reasons I love this outfit, in particular, is the chic blazer! Adding a third piece (blazer, jacket, coat) is a great way to pull an outfit together, and to get ready for fall.

MIX TEXTURES

Last but not least, try mixing textures within the same color family! This knit tank and silk skirt are the perfect example of mixing textures in the same hue to give your monochrome look depth. I love the contrast of warm knits with flowy silk textures. This *might* be my favorite way to put together a monochrome look because once it gets into fall, there are so many textures to work with! Can you tell I’m just excited for cooler weather already?
