Moving from Black & White to Monochromatic

best 1st pic

This is a continuation from my previous post on the monochrome trend. Its also driven by my interest in the monochrome and monochromatic trend (simple elegance) you do not have to try too hard to look stylish. The monochromatic trend is quit intriguing because it is not about matching colours or colour blocking. Monochromatic is about using the same colour for the entire outfit, its no longer only about wearing all black or all white. You can use one colour for the whole outfit. You can create variations and contrast through the use of different shades and textures by using the same colour scheme.

Tips on the monochromatic trend: you can use different shades of the same colour to make your outfit look more interesting (using light and dark contrasts). Another tip is to add a bit of personality and variation by wearing different coloured shoes, accessories and bags. You can also accessorize with your metallics such as your gold or silver neck pieces and earrings. In my perspective I think  white and neutral colours are the best colours, to add a bit of variation to the entire look. Apart from this I think monochromatic is a simple trend to pull of and its something that you have in your closet. Simplicity is key. For instance you can wear a coral colour, with a hint of peach or orange and white.

Look stylish, chic and fabulous in monochromatic. I love this trend because it is easy to articulate and its another timeless trend. If you love colour and you like standing out and being acknowledged monochromatic is for you…..

  1. I just love your blogs. They are like good wine. Get better with time. You had your own photo on your previous blog. I thought we’ll see it again. It was good to see you on your blog.
    You must also make examples of males and people in between.
    Otherwise, well done! Keep shining!
