How to Wear One Color From Head to Toe

How to Make Like Blake and Dress in Monochrome

We know that the idea of rocking the same color from head to toe can be frightening! Some of our favorite celebs have recently been spotted perfectly pulling off the look, and InStyle is breaking down the proper way to stand out in the same shade. Check out more below.

Dressing top-to-toe in one color is no easy feat — one wrong move can leave you looking like a Crayola crayon. That's why we typically default to adding pops of color rather than committing to a single shade. But this spring, we're taking style cues from Jessica Alba (in Narciso Rodriguez's coral) and Blake Lively (in Cushnie et Ochs's pink), who were both snapped out and about in striking sorbet shades. So we're shaking up our usual go-tos (no-brainer neutrals) and daring to stand out in tonal shades.


A full look in soft blush can easily read princess-y. Select tailored pieces, like this structured vest from Elizabeth and James or this flirty skirt from Topshop for a more sophisticated feel. If this look is too bold, layer a plain white tee under the vest to keep the look modest.
