In the fashion world, it could all be so simple...and it is! No worries, the words "simple" and "style" can coexist in creating the hottest looks of the season. Take for example the "Monochromatic Trend" this summer. This trend is simple, yet super-stylish, and proves that less effort can equate to high-fashion, despite what many may think. So just what is the secret to nailing the monochromatic fashion trend this season? Take this 5 simple tips to pull together the perfect monochromatic outfit this Summer!
TIP #1: Go for a single color Head-to-Toe
The most simple way to pull off this season's monochromatic fashion trend is to use one color from head to toe. To skip out on being too plain or boring, choose a vibrant color, and awesome fit, and eye-catching details.
Tip #2: Choose interesting Garments and Silhouettes
Take your style level up a notch by opting for interesting garments and silhouettes. Add in statement jewelry or shoes; an eye-catching top, or a focal piece to amp up your monochromatic look.
Tip #3: Break Up Color With Pattern
If wearing one color from head to toe intimidates you, or isn't your speed, opt for pattern to interrupt, yet complement your outfit. Never mind mixing patterns for this method. Choose one simple pattern from head to toe.
Tip #4: Break Up Pattern With Accessories
To tone down your head-to-toe monochromatic/patterned outfit while maintaining your style, toss in accessories to interrupt the overload of pattern. This can be done by choosing accessories of a neutral or complementing color. Nothing too "matchy", or overpowering, but just enough to allow pattern to be focal.
Tip #5: Play it Safe
Just now getting into the whole monochromatic trend? No worries, there's a place for you! To ease your way in to this trend, opt for a maximum of two traditional colors and play those two colors throughout your entire look.Check out the simple-yet-highly stylish Janelle Monae's black crop top, black and white statement skirt, white statement earrings, and complementing shoes and clutch:
