How to do a monochromatic look

Hey Beauties!

I hope you all had a great 4th of July holiday! Yesterday inspired me to do a nontradional patriotic look. I simply went with a monochromatic look which is just fancy for wearing the same color from head to toe. This isn’t to be confused with matchy-matchy but I’ll share a few tips so you all can try for a chic look! 

1. Pick one color

This is easier said than done, but the essence of a monochromatic look is to pick one color and play around which the shade of that color. In the photo below, I chose blue for the 4th of July  but took it a step further an paired my light navy colored @OldNavy off the shoulder blouse with a baby blue pair of skinny pants from @BabesandFelines. Both items compliment each other as they are both in the blue family and this rule applies to most colors. Tip: If you opt for a bright color to mono with, my advice is to do the deeper shade on the bottom which will make you more slim, then the brighter on top.

2. Play with different textures 

Once you figure out your color that you want to wear, playing with different textures in the same color will take your look to extra chic. In the summer we have  flowy cotton, chiffon, ruffles, or linen to name a few. During the fall and winter, think of shearling, faux fur, sequins, cable knit for sweaters and blouses. Pick one and decide if you want to make it a statement of your look. Tip: Don’t forget your accessories but try to keep it at a minimum with the finishing touches like a simple necklace or bangles. 

3. Choosing the right footwear

So once your look is put together, I always think it’s best to pick a neutral to wear at the bottom. If you are wearing cool colors like blues and purples think of a darker or light tan or brown color. If you are wearing more warm colors golds and tans are also a great choice. Grays are great for deeper colors as well.
