#1: Stick to classics
You can never go wrong with classic separates. A well-fitted blazer, a timeless button-down shirt and a pair of straight cut pants will forever be in style, and they look very chic worn together. You can also choose to add some interesting elements like a stylish belt or a pair of trendy shades.
#2: Play with accessories
One way to spice up a monochromatic look is to go big on the accessories. Try on a quirky hat like a beret, rock a pair of oversized earrings, or go for an eye-catching bag. Let your outfit be a blank canvas and go wild.
#3: Mix textures
Different textures can make a monochromatic outfit more exciting as they provide some much-needed contrast. Do like mega streetstyle star and fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert and match leather with sheer pieces.
#4: Take note of fit
With a head-to-toe monochrome look, it is exceptionally important to pay attention to the fit of the clothes – anything that doesn’t fit well will standout instantly (in a bad way). Invest in quality pieces that flatter your figure.
#5: Have fun with prints
Monochrome does not mean you can’t include some pretty prints in your outfit. For example, fashion blogger and model Doina Ciobanu matched a floral printed blouse with fashionable striped boots.
#6: Proportion matters
Donning a monochromatic look is a great opportunity to experiment with more adventurous proportions, like this oversized blazer. Also, matching different shades of the same colour is another handy styling trick.
#7: Try unique materials
Some less common materials like slightly vintage-inspired ribbed wool or suede can really work well in a monochromatic outfit – just take some style cues from our very own Yoyo Cao.
