I have always been a fan of monochromatic outfits. It’s an easy and quick way to pull together an outfit that looks chic and polished. This summer, however, monochromatic outfits are definitely having their moment. They can be seen all over Pinterest, in your favorite magazine, and in retailers’ advertisements. But what exactly is are monochromatic outfits? While it typically means dressing in one single color, it can also mean choosing pieces from the same color family, just with varying tints or shades. For instance, I love a solid black ensemble with a pop of color either using a fun heel, a statement necklace, or a top layer. This is my go-to look especially when it comes to holiday parties which you can read about HERE.
For summer though, I’m enjoying all the bright color selections as well as the earth-tone neutrals. This is one trend that’s definitely fun to play with. That’s why I thought it would be a great look for this month’s Style Your Budget. What is Style Your Budget? It’s where I offer an outfit formula for inspiration and then style it at different price points. For some items, you may be able to shop your closet and if you find any gaps, I offer different price points to fill in those gaps. While the formula this month is pretty simple, the pairing options are endless. What color palette will you choose for your monochromatic outfits?
