Monochrome for Fall

It’s time to clean up our acts, ladies! In fashion terms, monochromatic dressing means wearing separates of one color that have different textures and/or similar shades of that color for an overall tonal look. While mixing patterns and color-blocking can feel a bit fussy and overdone, wearing a single shade is a simpler, cleaner approach to putting an outfit together. In fact, when you keep your overall outfit within the same color hue, the outcome can be just as striking as wearing a bold pattern or vivid color.

A bonus is that the monochromatic outfits/looks have proven to be a trend that is cost effective whilst retaining its star power. You might not even need to buy anything at all to achieve this chic, polished style!

Wearing multiple layers of varied textures of one color add depth and dimension to an outfit, while also allowing you to highlight, or downplay, certain parts of your body. For a top heavy Sister, consider skinny jeans with a blouse and a vest or draped sweater to draw attention to a leaner body. To bring the focus upward or toward your face, try wearing bottoms with a slightly darker shade and work your way up with lighter, brighter variations of that color family.

When dressing monochromatically, your outfit has one uninterrupted line from head to toe that elongates your silhouette, making you appear slimmer and taller than you actually are.
