Tired Of Wearing All Black? Here's How To Rock A Monochromatic Outfit In A New Hue

March 11, 2013 by Melanie Barnes
shefinds | Celebrity

Spring is almost here, which means it’s about that time to release yourself from the all-black rut and take head-to-toe color for a test drive. After all, color is huge this spring, so you might as well embrace it to the fullest extent.

Now we totally recognize that a monochromatic look is a bold one, but we’re confident you can pull it off–as long as you follow these four easy tips, that is. Then, get inspired to build your own colorful ensemble by the ones we created below.

1. Work With What You’ve Got

If you’re just testing the trend, take a peek into your closet to see what color you love. If you already own blue trousers and a blue bag, consider using those as your building blocks the next time you go shopping. Starting with a color you love will also help guarantee you’ll wear the pieces again separately.

2. Mix It Up

Each piece you’re wearing should be just a shade or two lighter or darker than one another. The slight contrast helps keep you from looking like a giant blueberry (or orange, or lemon, etc.).

3. Throw In Some Texture

A chunky sweater, a textured purse or a silk shirt are all great ways to jazz up the monochromatic look. The differing textures will provide another degree of visual interest, much like wearing varying shades.

4. A Statement Accessory

Introduce a new color in the form of a small accessory to help break up the look. Think a cool bib necklace or a statement shoe in a new color. Try to choose a color that doesn’t compete with your main hue, but instead complements it. And yes, lipstick counts!

J.Crew Collection cashmere Isabel Sweatshirt ($248), True Religion Old Mint Misty Legging Finnigan Jeans ($220), Steve Madden Realove Evening Sandal Black Patent ($79), Kate Spade New York But Chad Bon Shopper ($148), Gorjana  Anchor Necklace ($50)

Acne Patti Tape Oversized Chiffon Blouse ($230), Madewell Charade Blazer ($100, down from $138), BCBGMAXAZRIA Robbie Wide-Leg Pant ($168, down from $101), Jessica Simpson Devin ($100), Tory Burch Pop Snake Necklace ($250)
