Monochromatic fashion will never go out of style. It’s classic. My favorite outfits are all one color. They make me feel my best. Outfits in the same color from head to toe make you feel taller, thinner and stylish.
Before I get into this post further, I want to share that today is OMG Lifestyle’s third anniversary! It was three years ago today that I began this wonderful creative journey.
I have learned so much and have met so many wonderful people. Thank you to my many loyal readers which have grown beyond my dreams. My blog has found its own little space on this vast internet. I am in amazement that I have had 1.5 Million visits during this time. Thank you!
Matching Monochromatic Colors
Monochromatic colors are all the colors of a single hue. However, not all shades of one color look good together. It depends on the tone and shade of that color.
And if you want to wear the same tone from head to toe, it can be a challenge. It’s not always easy to find matching colors unless they were designed together.
Every once in a while though, I feel like I hit the jackpot when I find tops and bottoms in the same color tone. Oddly enough, black is often the hardest shade to match. Have you found that too?
Following are some great examples of fashionable monochromatic outfits.
Black on black is the most common monochromatic choice when pulling an outfit together. I remember walking the streets of Manhattan years ago and looking around at all the people. Everyone was in black. It was almost a uniform.
Monochromatic Fashion in Shades of Blue
If you wear a lot of black like me, you will feel different when you switch to a different color. Even wearing a dark shade like this blue outfit will feel lighter. Have you noticed that?
Actress Allison Janey looks stunning in her hunter green leather pants and matching sweater. Don’t you agree?
Brown on Brown
This brown on brown outfit is a perfect match!
Head to Toe Gray
I think everyone looks great in gray! It’s a soft neutral.
Perhaps no one does monochromatic clothes better than St. John Knits. They are famous for their monochromatic separates.
I live in white jeans all summer long and even into fall (See my post Transitioning White Jeans Into Fall). I love the crisp look of an all white outfit.
When you wear all one color, you can keep it simple or you can turn to your accessories to make a statement. Think leopard purse, bold cuff bracelet, etc.
What’s your favorite color to wear from head to toe?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous weekend.
