There is no doubt that color blocking is a huge trend and has been for several seasons, but this year, a new color trend is in the spotlight, and that is monochromatic dressing. It’s about creating a complete look with just one color, using multiple shades or one single shade. The key is for all the clothing to be the same color with minimal to no design. The trend is very versatile and gives your silhouette a longer, leaner look. It works with any color you choose, so when first trying this trend go with a color that you are comfortable with and you know is flattering. Select separates with a simple, modern silhouette to keep the entire look clean and easy on the eye.
While bright hues definitely make a bold statement and seem more adventurous, a neutral or soft-hued version would be equally chic. Dark colors are a safer option and more effective at obtaining a slimming and lengthening effect. You can also add some texture to your monochromatic style by combining different fabric textures of the same color. For a look that is modern and chic, monochromatic dressing is for every age, and will create a suitable look that is long and lean.
