WHAT TO WEAR: Monochromatic

There is something to be said for someone who can pull off a look involving a single color. It’s a trend that hangs around from collection to collection in the fashion world, and if one can master this style, it creates an instantly classic and cool aura for its wearer. So, when I ran into this Fashionisto, I knew I had to stop him. From his clothes to his accessories (look at that watch!), this outfit is perfect for a pre-fall weekend day spent strolling around town.

The advantage to monochromatic outfits is that they can be translated into virtually any style. What’s most important is that the wearer breaks up the shades of the colors, like this Fashionisto did. A gray Hendly, black skinny jeans and white shoes cover the wide range of this color scheme. Versatility is really important when buying your clothes, so make sure you’re getting your moneys’ worth from clothes you can wear often that fit your style. From modern to bohemian, streetwear to preppy, sticking to one color can make any of these styles look clean and cool.

This look is such a perfect blend of comfortable and sleek. The colors add up to be an awesome blend of street wear shades, while the Henley T-shirt and Converse allude to a more laid back feel. Ray-Bans are always classic, and add a cool metallic touch with the charcoal watch, completing the look.

One Simple Change: Look for an outfit in the same color family, in whatever hues you’re comfortable with. If you’re out for a night on the town, opt for a brighter shoe that may be a contrasting color to add some interest.
