How To Rock the Monotone Look

I love the monotone look. It’s so chic and simple. You can create this look in most colors, minus any really loud colors (think: neon); unless, of course, you’re going for the 80s thing. But think wisely about the color you do choose, because it should compliment your skin tone. Here I’ve paired a plum, peplum shirt from H&M with plum skinny jeans, also from H&M. Keep it relatively simple if you’re doing monotone.

Another key is to not go completely head to toe in one color (which, in this case, would be plum hat, purse, and shoes), because that might be overkill (the exception might be an outfit entirely in black; see Anna Wintour). But make the main items one color and then add in pops of another color elsewhere to break up the monotony. I chose to make the hat, purse, and shoes black, because I love how it looks against this beautiful plum. The peplum shirt also keeps things a bit more interesting than perhaps a plainer plum-colored shirt. Makeup can be relatively simple, but experiment with playing up your lips (depending on the main color of your outfit). I chose a brighter red, which I think adds one additional small pop to the overall outfit.
