Contrary to popular belief, monochromatic dressing does not necessarily mean head-to-toe black ensembles, winter whites, or cool neutrals. In fact, it could be just about any colour in the colour wheel and it’s not any harder to style. You can still achieve the same chic and stylish effect as your #allblackeverything outfit.
Pick Your Colour
One great way to get into this trend is to start off with your favourite colour, or any colour that you’re comfortable with. It could be orange, green, burgundy, and so on. All you have to do is pick one colour and wear just that. Play around with different hues and shades and see what works best for you. This might sound surprising, but my favourite colour has always been pink for as long as I can remember. (PS, if you ever see my room in my parental-home, it’s filled with pink.) Here, I paired an off shoulder top in rose from Something Borrowed with a midi skirt in pale pink from Missguided.

Mix In Textures
One texture in a singular shade looks amazing in the form power suits and co-ords. However, when styling separates, incorporating various textures (suede, silk, sheer panels) adds a much needed depth and interest to the overall outfit. My outfit here is a mixture of lace and bandage textures. My favourite part about this off shoulder top is its lace sleeves and overlay, which gives off an ethereal vibe. Isn’t it pretty?! Pairing it with this bandage skirt which features an asymmetric cut takes the outfit to a whole different level.
Pops Of Colour
This is optional. In terms of accessories, it’s pretty common to go monochromatic as well. However, I prefer to switch things up by adding pops of colour. Again, it could be any colour that you like. Being me, it’s as though my outfit is incomplete without any black touches. Hence, I went with my Something Borrowed bag, which in a way still compliments my all pink outfit with its pink floral embroidery, and also a minimal black heels from Addicts Anonymous.
Monochromatic dressing is all about experimenting with multiple hues and shades, as well as textures. Once you know what works the best for you, you’re good to go!
