A typical summer look generally consists of bright, opulent color schemes and prints that are equally as bold. However, just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that dark color schemes have to be excluded from the mix. Despite the fact that it was a clear, sunny day, this Fashionisto opted for a unique black and white monochromatic color scheme, which was simple, yet eye catching all at the same time.
The first thing that really caught my eye was these Fashionisto’s shorts. They play well into the monochromatic color scheme, but their elaborate design provides for a bold and edgy flair. This Fashionisto manipulates the simple monochromatic color scheme in his all black T-shirt that also has black faux leather accents giving a more textured illusion. This Fashionisto’s look is accessorized with a tri color collar necklace and some studded woven bracelets. In addition, a pair of printed black, white and gold sunglasses are worn to perfectly complement his leopard print backpack as well as the rest of his outfit. This Fashionisto knows how to play up a basic monochromatic color scheme with exciting textures and prints to create a simple yet edgy look that is great for almost any summer occasion.
How To: Inspired by this Fashionisto’s monochromatic summer look? You can get it too by mixing a pair of printed shorts or shirt of your choice with one another and by sticking with the dark monochrome details. There is really a lot of room for creativity even when you are trying to stay within the same color scheme. I suggest checking out some of the styles at AllSaints because most of their pieces are black, white, gray or brown. They also have many great denim and leather jackets, which would make a great accent to this look!
