Dressing in a monochrome palette has long been a Fashionista’s trick for achieving an effortless chic and classic look. Outfits comprised from shades of black and variations of cream always assert a timeless charm. Balancing monochromatic color, however, is a tricky feat. It’s a challenge that calls for balance, and all the right accessories.

This Fashionista makes the monochrome look uniquely her own by opting for a palette of cranberry colors with mauve hints. She layers a plum knit jumper with a muted pink blouse. She wears black high-waisted harem pants and brown leather boots. Her accessories include a single silver bangle, silver detailed earrings and a distressed cherry red leather tote. This Fashionista keeps her outfit fun, fresh and engaging by maintaining a specific color palette, but opting for various shades. Her tote, in particular, ties together this monochrome look as it carries the color to a different spot. Along with this, this Fashionista’s simple silver charms polish and mature her look.

Including strong colors in an outfit demands attention, and including different hues provides an unexpected twist. Many accessories include their own monochrome scheme, such as purses and necklacesLayering bangles with similar colors is a fun way to include a gradient pop in your look. When an outfit is repetitive in color, it relies on the accessories to provide texture and shape. This spring, embrace fresh colors that set you apart and push your fashion boundaries. Emulate your colorful personality through your colorful look, just like this Fashionista.
