Typically, I’m not a monochromatic dresser. I tend to lean more towards brighter, bolder colors. I usually take one brightly colored item, be it top or bottoms, and then pair it with a neutral other and some simple shoes.
When pairing similar or monochromatic colors, you either go one of two ways; you match all colors exactly, or you vary them according to temperature. What do I mean by this? Take an all white outfit for instance. When you’re pairing the whites together, you’re going to want them all to be similar in shade and cast. There are cool whites and warm whites. You want to pair one or the other together, but never both.
The same is true for pairing neutrals. When you pick them, each article is either going to be cool or warm. In my above outfit, all the colors I’m wearing lean more towards the warm side.
Just remember this simple tip, warm with warm and cool with cool, and you won’t go wrong. Also, another thing when wearing a monochromatic outfit, is to wear pops of color. For instance, my necklace, lipstick, and bag are all accessories that give my outfit a little extra. I did the same thing with this outfit.
Will you be styling any neutral monochromatic outfits this spring?
