Monochromatic Style and Outfit Ideas

Master the Monochromatic Look

It came as a shock to us, but it was actually Kim Kardashian who inspired our recent crush on all things monochromatic. The seemingly simple look is trickier to master than you might think — and includes some fashion contradictions.

First, forget matching your shades exactly. Instead, look for variations on a hue that are just different enough that no one will think you simply missed the mark. And if you do want to do the same color full-on, then do your due diligence, and shop until you find just the right pieces. We rounded up our favorite gray, pink, and blue options here, ready to be worn from the weekend to the boardroom.

Shop from left to right, top to bottom: James Perse cotton sweatshirt ($110), Kate Spade New York Alexandria lace top ($298), Acne Studios Bosa tank ($100), J Brand Photo-Ready jeans ($218), Tibi jacquard full skirt ($395), Topshop flare trousers ($90), Jeffrey Campbell booties ($198), J.Crew Everly suede pumps ($200, originally $265), Belle by Sigerson Morrison flats ($175)

I have always worn and loved the monochromatic look. I 5'3" and 103 lbs. Dressing in the monochromatic mode makes me look taller and doesn't chop me up into small different colored pieces. I can also have more fun with jewelry.
