Now I DIE for a good monochrome look but to be perfectly honest, not everyone can do it and pull it off properly. This has nothing to do with how you look but the fact of the matter is that this is a really advanced skill. You can’t just go pairing any red top with any red bottom and red shoes and think you have a fabulous red monochrome look. I was racking my brain earlier trying to figure out the secret to building and executing monochrome but really it comes down to being able to pick out the right pieces.
You can have every piece in the same shade, different shades, loose, tight, sparkly, prints, basics and everything in between, BUT if you aren’t able to choose that perfect piece then you will fail miserably and it won’t be pretty. And no, all black doesn’t count as a monochrome look.
This shades o’ blue look started with the pants- obsessed with these high-waisted wide-legged pants that fit me like an actual glove, from H&M. I thought of a white top at first but immediately backtracked as that of course would be everyone’s go-to. I knew I wanted a professional button down and came across this ice blue top, also from H&M. Perfecto! After seeing the blue on blue I immediately knew it was time to get my monochrome on- grabbed my blue suede Zara pumps and another swish in OOTD land.
