Monochromatic Dressing

Monochromatic Dressing

I love the fall with all the rusty colors of gold, orange, red, and touches of cinnamon brown. As much as I love the fall colors, for me, they are hard to wear because I look better in cool colors. 

 I find the simple shades of black, white, and gray are basics that work for me, so today I decided to create a monochromatic outfit that showcases the cool basic shades. 

What exactly is monochromatic dressing? It is basically wearing the same color in different shades. It can also be wearing different textures of that color, as well. 

I created the monochromatic outfit with the inspiration of my shirt that I chose to wear as a jacket.  

My shirt is a faded black with a pattern of gray lines. I paired the silky top with a pair of black jeans. Hence, the jeans are a different texture and a darker shade. I then added a light blue-gray tank top to complement the gray lines in the shirt. 

The next step was to include accessories. I opted for silver shoes and a silver gray tote. I included silver bracelets and a gray belt. 

And finally, I added a necklace that was silver and black.

Dressing in monochromatic is an easy way to create a quick outfit.  The trick is to wear a color or shade that works for you. I could have created an outfit in different shades of blue or red. What wouldn't have worked for me are warm shades of brown, orange, or gold. Although I wear these colors, I must wear cool or bright colors with them or my face would look yellow or pale.  

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
