What if one color was enough to create the right outfit for every occasion? And no, we are not talking about black, although its beauty and appeal are undisputed. We are referring to the monochromatic look, much more than a trend, but a true evergreen to show off in your free time and at work.
Monochromatic look: how to create it
If we find it quite easy to create total black outfits, those in which we feel comfortable always and in any case, the matter can get complicated if instead of the non-color we opt for another nuance.
Yet, the monochromatic look, has an unparalleled appeal. In fact, by choosing the right shades, we can create a whole range of different and diverse proposals to wear for work, formal dates and leisure.
The only rule, in this case, is to choose the shade that suits us best. Helping us in this mission is armochromy, which allows us, precisely, to identify the color palette that best suits our complexion and features.
However, even if you do not know your armochromatic season, you can still experiment with the monochromatic look by drawing from trendy shades and evergreens.
The advice is to put black and white aside, and start with basic colors. Although there is no shortage of bolder proposals, even in winter, to color the gloomiest days with style. Here are ours.
Monochromatic looks in winter: style ideas
Dresses, jackets and blazers, pants, jeans and sweaters: the proposals for creating a monochromatic look are many and you are spoiled for choice. However, if you are looking for ideas and inspiration, here are our tips to start building outfits with just one color.
We all fall under the spell of denim, at all times of the year and in all seasons. If you want to experiment with the monochromatic look, you can start with this very fabric. Opt for a high-waisted, narrow or wide-leg denim pant and pair it with a denim shirt of the same wash. The more cold-hearted can also add a blue sweater to the look, a warm and comfortable touch of style.
A total pink look
There are so many shades of pink that you are spoiled for choice. It is a color that can be worn on any occasion, from work to leisure, and is always on trend.
From nude pink to antique pink, for those who love vintage and romantic looks, via baby pink and close to fuchsia: have fun matching different garments by choosing equal shades or with different gradients.
Remember to use light shades to enhance a certain body part and vice versa.
Monochromatic gray look
If you do not feel like daring with colors during winter, then the advice is to opt for gray, a shade that someone called "The New Black." In fact, this shade, is increasingly preferred by lovers of total black, especially in the construction of chic, elegant and refined looks.
Again, you are spoiled for choice: you can opt for light or dark shades, intense or closer to taupe. To brighten up the look, however, we recommend choosing light or white accessories. A white hat, for example, a scarf or a headband really make a difference.
Don't forget about the accessories, never more than in the case of the monochromatic look, these really make a difference. You can either draw directly from your chosen palette, opting for a stronger, more intense hue, or completely upset the plans and choose contrasting shades for a super glamorous effect.
The alternative is gold and silver accessories, which, needless to say, look good on everything!
