STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Monochromatic Chic

Don't get me wrong, I love playing with color. Yet there is something about the undeniably chic look of an outfit consisting of one color. Every fashion lover can create this look by simply looking through their wardrobe and go against their instincts to use contrasting colors. Instead they should pick items of similar shades and use the differing textures and fabrics to make their outfit one for the books.

For someone testing the waters with a single colored look, black is the easiest route to go. Black is classic and slimming. For a night on the town, a pair of black shorts and a blouse with lace shoulders looks great along with some fun black wedges and a black tote. A black-on-black look is simple but chic. For a day style, one can look for lighter shades to keep cool in the summer heat. 

In order to create a more daring look, the same color in differing hues can create an interesting fashion-forward look. A pink look, with a pleated skirt in bright pink paired with a coral tank is eye-catching and fun. 

I spotted this Fashionista in an all white ensemble. Her look is easy and classic with her breezy white tank and white jeans paired with simple black accessories. 

Monochromatic looks are timeless and easy to wear. They are fun when combining items of different textures. Choose to either combine very different hues or the same as to not appear sloppy. Also don't be afraid to play around with accessories of different shades.
