Everyone has a favorite color, but have you ever liked a certain color so much that you wanted to wear it from head to toe? A monochrome look is one of the most difficult ones to pull off, but when done correctly it makes a bold statement. The trick is to find shades of the same color that coordinate. This Fashionista chose to use olive green to create her own monochrome look. She chose this particular shade because it’s one of her favorites and it complements her skin tone.

She started with a forest green mock turtleneck and paired it with an ankle-length skirt in a lighter shade of the same color. By choosing a tight skirt, she kept the look modern and flattering. The different ribbing on the pieces added dimension to her outfit.

This Fashionista takes her look to the next level with bold accessories such as safety pin earrings. She adds sparkle with several diamond studs in her ears and completes the look with a pair of dark green open-toe boots and teal nails. Her shoes add height and keep her outfit sophisticated.

Want to create your own monochrome look? Neutral colors, such as earth tones, are the easiest to coordinate and keep your outfit eye-catching. However, it can be difficult to find exactly the same color pieces. The solution? Use a variety of shades of the same color. This will also add dimension to your outfit. Monochrome doesn’t mean boring—add eye-catching accessories or a fun hairstyle to finish your ensemble.
