You can take your fashion game to an entirely different level by wearing monochromatic outfits. By wearing an outfit that is the same color or similar in color, you will instantly look more expensive and chic. Here is some inspiration for monochromatic outfits that can make the world your runway no matter where you are heading.
Black: Edgy and Timeless
It doesn’t matter if you went through a goth phase when you were younger, everyone looks good wearing an all-black outfit. A black monochromatic outfit gives you the chance to make a dramatic impression and lets everyone know you mean business. When it gets colder, you can really layer it up with a long coat, scarf, and turtleneck to keep you warm and stylish. An alternative to the winter coat could be the always trendy moto jacket. This lightweight jacket always gives off the right amount of edge and pairs nicely with a pair of black jeans (Rips are always welcome). Of course, you can never go wrong with a little black dress when going out. It is a timeless statement piece and versatile from going clubbing to an important meeting.
White: Elegant and Classy
Don’t worry if you are balling on a budget. When you are wearing white monochromatic outfits, you will instantly look like a million bucks. The purity of the color white has the ability to make you instantly seem wealthy. On the opposite side of the spectrum, wearing all white is probably the ideal choice for staying cool in the spring and summer and makes for a great brunch outfit. Just be careful avoiding stains! Even when you are keeping it casual, a white denim jacket paired with white trousers or jeans still keeps that elegance in your outfit. If you have a denim jacket that’s so faded that it looks white, this gives you the chance to give it a new life. A white t-shirt or graphic tee really makes the perfect outfit for when you are on-the-go!
Brown/Tan: Cozy and Neutral
If you wish fall could last all year long, you might want to consider a brown or tan outfit. It is a neutral color and is made for layering when the temperature starts to drop. The camel-colored winter coat is the ideal coat to add to your monochromatic outfit for a pop of color that is still neutral and chic. Brown comes in all shades, so go for a lighter shade like beige for a more timeless look or darker to keep the autumn vibes. To get even cozier, the teddy bear coat serves a dual purpose of keeping you warm in the winter and just looking really cute and fuzzy. For bottoms, brown trousers, corduroy pants, and leather boots will perfectly complement your brown monochromatic outfits. Brown also looks great in velvet, so if you are able to match your colors with textures, your outfits will automatically be taken to a new level. Even when pumpkin spice season is over, rocking an all-brown outfit will make it feel like it is sweater weather all year round.
Red: Bold and Passionate
Looking to make a statement? Wear all red. As a warm color, wearing red signifies energy and passion and will instantly make you stand apart from the crowd. There’s also something about red monochromatic outfits that have a retro feel to them. A deep red winter coat along with your choice of skirt or trousers will give you the feeling of walking the streets of Paris. For more of a look straight out of the 90s, go for a leather skirt with a turtleneck. Add sunglasses for extra grunge. Red is also where accessories get to shine. A bold lipstick, nail polish, sunglasses or purse will complete your outfit. No matter what you are wearing, a pair of red Converse sneakers never go out of style so feel free to experiment with the two contrasting styles. A more subtle alternative to red is wearing burgundy. Somewhere between a deep red and purple, a burgundy outfit will make you look and feel sophisticated.
Blue: Vintage and Stylish
If you are feeling daring, choose the color blue for your next monochromatic outfit. Blue has quite a range that can change the entire feeling of your outfit. A true deep blue can have the same effect as a red outfit since it has the power to make you stand out. A bright blue blazer paired with trousers of the same shade screams powerful. Highly recommended for important presentations or occasions. Once you start getting into the lighter shades of blue, you can make your outfits seem more classic. An aqua blue outfit will appear straight out the 90s if that is the type of look you are going for. Pastel blues make for a great spring outfit and can be worn with a light airy blouse and matching skirt. Navy blue outfits are very reminiscent of French fashion, so you’ll automatically get style points for rocking this shade. Now to talk about one of the biggest fashion taboos: denim on denim. There’s a way to do this without going overboard like Britney and Justin! The trick is to wear different shades of denim so they compliment each other. However, if you want to be consistent with your denim then go for it!
Pink: Sweet and Romantic
No matter if you are a fan of Wes Anderson or Mean Girls, pink outfits are always fun and trendy. There is no one way to wear pink. A pastel shade definitely has a vintage high fashion flair to it. The fabric also helps give your outfit the additional vintage feel to it. Softer material like wool and cashmere perfectly compliment the light, airy color. A wrap dress of the same color will make sure you are channeling the 1960s style perfectly. Pink can also be a bold color if you want it to be. A hot pink outfit is fierce by its very nature in the form of a dress to go out clubbing or in a suit worn from head to toe. All you have to do is master the art of blowing the chewing gum bubble to show the right amount of attitude.
