Monochrome outfits have been my favourite since forever because of their elegance and simplicity. An outfit which has the same colour scheme from bottoms to top is called a monochrome look. If worn rightly, they help look one sleek and put together. Monochrome is my favourite for this summer because I mostly wear white, cream and beige where there is a very tiny scope of multiple colour scheme. And not to forget, I like my wardrobe in this way only. Even my essentials for this summer are very minimal.
I’m the person who cannot take heat for a second, loves to live in minimal soothing clothes which helps to cope with the tropical climate. Then cotton and linen are the only hope remains ( I can say that linen is my denim). I mostly visualise myself in rugs and torn pieces of clothes when it comes to cotton and linen because both fabrics stand for utmost comfortability but not for style and fashion. People think that wearing these fabrics means looking boring and monotonous and if it is monochrome it becomes very dull which is not wrong 100 per cent. But it can happen with every fabric and colour scheme if not styled properly. Every outfit needs a little bit of attention while putting together. Your little bit of attention can change the entire look.
How I styled my monochrome outfit
I chose my linen wide legged trousers which I also have worn for “Comfy Office Look” as well, with a loose knit top (cotton blend). My top has dusty off white colour which is slightly different from the colour of my light beige trousers which means both has the almost same colour scheme. Anything in knit, look very elegant and feminine as well as expensive. My top is under $15 but it doesn’t look inexpensive. And very affordable compared to its utility. I wanted a different texture for my monochrome outfit that’s why I chose knits with linen. If I would have chosen Linen with Linen, would have played differently with my accessories. I will put things here in points so that it becomes easier to understand:
- I added to different textures, linen, cotton knit, straw (bag), faux leather (sliders).
- Added gold colour (more texture) by using gold hoops and necklace.
- My straw bag has a black belt which adds one more texture to my outfit.
- I kept my makeup very minimal with tanning which was perfect for my summer inspired look. Not to forget my tanning was also adding extra texture.
You see, by adding different textures but from the same colour scheme can create a huge difference to an outfit. It doesn’t look dull or monotonous, Rather it looks an interesting outfit appropriate for vacation or a date day.
While creating a monochrome outfit, it’s very important that you mix textures and play with accessories. The more textures you add, the more interesting and attractive an outfit you look. But that doesn’t mean that while adding textures, you go untidy and create a look which is overwhelming. Everything should be in balance. I like to keep things minimal because it’s easy to maintain and also minimal outfits look very chic. This is how I like to create my formal outfits also. I look forward to create more monochrome outfits for vacation this summer as in, there are a lot of vacationing remains.
