The literal explanation of monochrome fashion is a style of dressing in only one color. In our daily life, the most common and classical monochrome style is all black, which is chic, trendy, handsome and still extremely popular today.
Compared with all-black outfits, the other popular monochrome style is all white, which presents a refined and graceful feeling to others. However, the all-white outfit is more difficult to match since it has a higher demand in the aspect of garments’ quality and texture.
The all-gray style is favored by many fashion bloggers and it girls. It's a really comfortable and natural color, plus, it helps people to highlight their characteristics since it's easy-matching and great for different skin tones.
Earth color is definitely necessary for this season, especially camel, fitting with the popular trends without being too high-profile but elegant and noble.
All-red is super "hot" in China because red is an auspicious and fortunate color in Chinese culture, people believe it will bring luck and happiness if they wear the red outfits in some special occasions or festivals, such as the wedding, Spring Festival. But as an enthusiastic color, red outfit indeed youthful and warm.
Unlike colorful clothing, we need to mater more skills for solid colors outfits. Otherwise, it will become too dull or monotonous.
1. Gradient Color
Gradient color is a good trick to break the monotony of monochrome outfits. The interchange and gradient of dark colors and light colors will generate a collision, highlighting the visual effect and making the silhouette more stereoscopic.
2. Highlight the Layering
It's possible to lose a sense of layering when wearing the solid color clothes. However, except for the mix of different shades, there is another practical skill to create layering- wearing the clothes with different materials. The distinction between soft and hard, light and dark will make the whole look more layered.
Please see these three examples: 1. the v-neck sweater matches with the maxi skirt, 2. the cable knit sweater pairs with the midi skirt, 3. the oversized shirt and the fashion baggy jeans, all of the combinations produce a super strong contrast in the help of different materials.
3. White is Always Helpful
If you think it's hard to handle the “monochrome style”, put on some white outfits. No matter the white oversized shirt, the white shoes, or the white socks, any white outfit can go well with any solid color outfit!
