Here are a few tips and tricks you can try to make a monchrome look work for you.

Styling monochrome looks

Styling tips to create a stunning monochrome look.

  1. Add a colourful silk scarf as a belt. The ‘belt’ creates a waist and breaks up the blockiness you may feel dressed neck to knee is one colour.
  2. Wear a scarf or colourful necklace. This will bring a contrasting colour your face.
  3. Try a neutral-coloured belt. Create the illusion of a separate top and bottom. It will break up the sameness of the overall look. Add a matching-coloured shoe and/or bag to create a chic look.
  4. For a bit of panache wear a jacket in a bold colour. Offset the monochrome and make a statement.
  5. Try a jacket with a different texture or style such as denim over silk or linen. Add a seasonal flavour to a monochrome piece.
  6. Select monochrome pieces made with a textured fabric or that are in a deconstructed style. As you move the light will catch the texture which breaks up the sense of a single colour. A deconstructed piece will move and flow when you move. This reduces the sense of the piece being one colour.
