Monochromatic looks or color drenching is the Fall trend to try, so how do you master a monochromatic look?
Fashion Month streetstyle and runways were filled with all kinds of monochromatic looks. Yes, droves of ladies and gents were layering pieces from the same color family in varying textures and tones to create tonal looks and I LOVED it. Why, you ask? There’s something undeniably sophisticated and visually interesting about creating dimension with color and emphasizing the overall silhouette of an outfit in a single color.
I know as New Yorkers, we’ve been wearing all black since the dawn of time (and I’m not encouraging you to stop), but there’s a fresh way to achieve the same chic effect with a bit more personality and style. Whether you go bold with an all red or all yellow look or more muted with shades of grey or tan, it’s about committing to a single shade from head-to-toe.
For a recent warm Fall day, I gave the trend a try and created a monochromatic pink look. I paired a crepe button down blouse with juliet sleeves with a blush toned pleated skirt with contrasting velvet trim. For a true head-to-toe pink look, I went with fuscia lipstick, carried a warm nude box bag and wore rose gold heeled sandals with leaf detail. Finally, as to not detract from the pinks, I opted for black accessories – cat eye sunglasses and tassel earrings.
