is already up on the trend (making it more exciting to try it out on your own!) In the January issue of Lucky Magazine, the trend of monochrome styling is defined and outlined with three top tips to help you make the monochromatic trend all your own!
The Monochrome Trend = wearing multiple shades of the same base color within an ensemble.
Use one rich hue to ground the mix of shades. The darkest shade of the primary color should be the anchor of the outfit and typically should be the jacket, top or sweater.
Wear wild prints as neutral-worthy accessories.
Leopard print shoes & accessories make great neutral options for tone - on - tone looks.
Texture adds dimension to a monochromatic look.
Choose textured sweaters, cardigans and scarves are great options to add versatility to an already established look.
Rocking monochromatic options in hues of cobalt blue, red and pale pinks!
Add a pop of contrast color with a bag.
Think color blocking with your bag! Adding a pop of color via a clutch or large bag provides the versatility of solid colors without the boring black or brown bag!
