We’ve picked up some tips and tricks to wear unicolour designs from our favourite fashionistas so you can match your outfit like the pros.
What do style bloggers and celebs Aimee Song, Camila Coelho, Chriselle Lim and Rihanna have in common? They all ace monochrome outfits without looking flat or monotonous.
Yes, the monochrome look is back in trend, especially in Fall 2017’s colour palette (see also: Resort 2018 trends and SS18 trends) – and we’ve picked up some tips and tricks to wear unicolour designs from our favourite fashionistas so you can match your outfits like the pros.
Tip #1: Mix different textures and materials for more dimension
Aimee pairs her burgundy knitted wool sweater with glossy leather pants to take on the streets of LA.
Our take: Wear a wool sweater with velvet pants for ultra comfort on top of style points. Add a bag and a pair of heels and you’re good to go. Sweater – Bottega Veneta, Pants – Stella McCartney, Heels – NudistSong, Bag- Givenchy.
Our take: Alternatively, try this satin top and corduroy skirt combo for something more unique. You can even throw a jacket over your top, like this wool-blend one we've picked out. Top – Anine Bing, Jacket – Victoria Beckham, Skirt – Marc Jacobs, Heels – Alexandre Birman, Bag – Chloe.
Tip #2: Here’s a no-brainer – wear a matching set!
Chriselle shows us how a pink top, suit and pants combo can look this great and we’re sold.
Our take: Get your “on Wednesdays, we wear pink” look thought out like Chriselle with this no-fuss suit-and-pants getup. Suit – Emilio Pucci, Pants – Gucci, Heels – Charlotte Olympia, Bag- Chloe.
Tip #3: When in doubt, go minimal
Aimee wears a long red maxi with a round tote bag and heels - that's our definition of understated elegance.
Our take: We’ve paired this red midi dress with a simple tote and mule pumps for a minimal yet sophisticated look. Dress – Givenchy, Bag – Lanvin, Heels – Gianvito Rossi.
Our take: Here’s a double-take on this tip with our current colour obsession – burgundy. You’re welcome. Dress – Cushie et Ochs, Bag – Diane von Furstenberg, Heels – Malone Souliers.
Tip #4: Wear the same colour, in different shades
Rihanna sports a peachy-pink minidress with a more cool-toned pink jacket for extra edginess to this girly number.
Our take: We’ve mixed pastel with neutral pink tones for a classic and timeless outfit. Jacket – Prada, Dress – Valentino, Heels – Oscar Tiye, Bag – Fendi.
Tip #5: Small accents make worlds of difference
Black is arguably the easiest colour to go monochrome with, but choosing pieces with similar accents – like the metallic studs on Camila’s pants and bag – can add that glam factor to the overall look.
Our take: We like a little gold accent on our full black ootd, and both this belt and bag do the trick. Top – Giorgio Armani, Belt – Gucci, Skirt – Roland Mouret, Flats – Stuart Weitzman, Bag – Mulberry
