STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dramatic Monochromatic

January 23rd, 2015 at 2:00am

Sometimes when you’re rushing out of the house to get somewhere, you don’t have the time to sit and try to match different colored pieces together to create a presentable outfit. What is the best way to overcome this? Throw on pieces that are all different shades of the same color and form a monochromatic ensemble! If you layer articles of clothing that are all the same color, you’ll be able to stay warm while not having to worry about matching.

This Fashionista flaunted a brown color palette from head to toe. The bottom layers of her outfit—the brown top and brown high socks—give a darker feel. However, she brightened that up by throwing on a long, beige cardigan that stayed within her color theme. To stay warm in the winter chill, this Fashionista wrapped an infinity scarf around her neck that actually incorporated all the hues of her color palette: brown, tan and beige.

Accessories are always an important part of an outfit. They help to bring out a Fashionista’s personality. This Fashionista decided to stay in her color theme with her accessories as well. Her high brown socks, which have been a popular trend lately, match her boots perfectly, bringing her comfort, warmth and style! The boots she is wearing have to be laced up in the back, which brings a nice unique touch to the otherwise ordinary boots. Her Michael Kors purse is the perfect tone of color to match her outfit as well. To bring the whole outfit together and add a little bling, she decided to put on a long, gold necklace along with her gold watch and bracelet. These little touches of gold match her outfit flawlessly while adding some shine to her ensemble.
