Master a Monochromatic Outfit with Ease

Instead of stressing over the right way to colour block, start collecting attire in your favourite hue and embrace the ever-faithful trend of monochromatic dressing.

For years fashion has been teaching us all the ways to mix and match prints and colours, but now a dramatic statement can be made through using a single, stand-alone colour. Simplistic in approach, a monochromatic outfit is all about combining the same colour, no matter the shade, print or texture. Proving more is better, we have picked a mix of all the trending colours at the moment to allow you the best chance of achieving this look flawlessly.

GLAM UP: GREEN

Green can often be seen as a representation of the more envious emotions, and so for this look we are adamant you will be getting a few fashion admirers.

A blend of classy and chic, this ensemble is not only fun but also glamorously sophisticated.

Bold in the simple details, the combination of the punchy Oroton green waisted shirt dress with the statement sleeves and the emerald accessories makes the monochromatic styling obvious without being overpowering.

The gold and emerald Alison Lou bracelet, Roxanne Assoulin double tear-shaped earrings and Bottega Veneta envelope clutch are proof that matching accessories belong together and we are here for it.

And because this outfit deserves a place in the Upper East Side, we couldn’t forget the notorious Blair Waldorf inspired headband.

A Queen B in your own right, savour green glam for the special moment’s life has to offer.

RADIATE PURE SUNSHINE: YELLOW

Despite the temperamental weather of spring, we believe this hue is one to brighten any day.

While many monochromatic looks can steer away from the central shade through the use of a subtle accessory, we think yellow deserves to stand alone in this outfit.

Understanding of the suit pant trend currently making waves at the moment, Camilla and Marc have released the perfect tailored, wide leg pants.

Pair with their custard yellow knit vest and Tony Bianco open-toed heels to allow for a flawless combination that is both minimalistic and showstopping.

Also, don’t be afraid to play around with textures instead of patterns to make your outfit more interesting.

And for a touch of fun, explore detailed accessories.

The Stella McCartney logo bag, Bottega Veneta twist hoop earrings and the Musa By Bobbie bead bracelet are a faultless addition to your wardrobe and worth the spoil if you’re wanting to add a touch of sunshine to your day.

FREE AS A BIRD: BLUE

Blue can represent a variety of things, but we believe the hue is most fitting as a representation of freedom and inspiration given the recent exits out of lockdown.

And with the year coming to the end, a look of relaxation is precisely what you need.

When combining bold colours together, sometimes it helps to bring an outfit to life with the use of prints and patterns.

A notable trend at the moment is blue and white striped formal dress shirts and the Dazie oversized shirt is sure to become a staple in many wardrobes.

Pair with the Lee Mathews deep satin blue skirt and dress down with a pair of Superga white sneakers.

While the white is a clear departure from the central colour in play, the bold skirt ensures blue remains the most enthralling colour.

Combine with a classic cap and complete with some Mejuri large hoops and a Charles & Keith blue handbag for a look that achieves laid-back chic effortlessly.

FEEL THE WARMTH: ORANGE

Instead of using orange as a pop of colour over neutral shades, we think it deserves to be spotlighted.

Radiating warmth, this outfit is a favourite in our books.

To not make it too overpowering for those hesitant of wearing such a bold colour, experiment with layering various shades over one another.

Starting with a casual orange t-shirt as the base, add an Asceno silk satin slip dress for an elegant and functional pairing.

Because many looks are completed only through the accompaniment of the perfect accessories, style with a vibrant Charles & Keith saddle bag and Oroton’s Alexis cat eye sunglasses in turmeric.

While we love relying on one colour when monochromatically styling, there are many ways to embrace the trend.

Although this look is predominately presenting the one shade, we think it looks strikingly alluring when adorned with white leather ankle boots and a delicate gold necklace.
