If there’s one trend that is hot right now it would be monochromatic looks – dressed top to toe in a single colour. Dressing in a single colour can make a powerful style statement, anything from making you the centre of attention with a bright red outfit to a more Zen-like vibe created by earthy neutrals. These 8 monochrome outfits for women will make acing this trend easier than ever before.
What is a monochromatic outfit?
To know what monochrome fashion is, you need to start at the beginning. The word “monochromatic” can be broken down into “mono” and “chromatic” meaning single and colour respectively. So any monochromatic outfit is put together with individual pieces of the same colour. That doesn’t mean you need to stick to the exact same shade or shy away from prints and patterns. Building monochromatic outfits are best done with shades of the same colour – some lighter and some darker to add more depth to your look. Throw in some different textures and prints, and don’t forget the accessories, and you’ve got yourself super trendy monochrome clothes.
Outfits to slay this trend
1. Shades of cool
For more soothing monochrome outfits for women, the pastel blue look is a chic combination. The V-neck top with three-quarter sleeves made in a breathable cotton fabric is loose-fitting and pairs well with the ankle-length trousers with a striped design. The pastel blue heels are the finishing touch that completes this casual outfit to perfection.
2. Earthy hues
Olive green is an earthy shade that works well with a variety of formal or informal looks. The textured lace top with a square neckline and sheer half-sleeves tucked into the straight cut cropped trousers with a broad fabric belt is a smart look. Wear this outfit with black sandals or heels and a black clutch.
3. Coordinated casuals
You can simplify monochrome outfits for women by just wearing a top and shorts in the same colour. Drop shoulder three-quarter sleeves and a round neckline come together to make this navy-blue top with white stripes. Paired with light wash distressed denim shorts, this outfit is right for a casual day or even just lounging at home. Match this look with white or powder blue sneakers.
4. Calming blues
Another pretty monochrome combination for casual wear is this V-neck top in blue. The knitted texture adds to this button-down crop top’s appeal. Paired with ankle-length skinny jeans in the same shade of blue and sneakers, it gives this outfit that extra oomph.
5. Pretty in pink
If you like pink, this monochrome outfit is for you! The light pink round neck top has puffed sheer sleeves with sunflower motifs printed across the sleeves. Tucked into cropped trousers in the same shade, the pleated trousers with a fabric belt are comfortable and stylish for all-day wear. Pair this outfit with pink or white heels for a dressier option or just pink sneakers for that relaxed vibe.
6. Pastel play in green
For an eternally stylish look, you can try the light green textured sheer lace top with transparent half sleeves. It can be tucked into the flared trousers with a broad elasticated waistband with closely stitched together pleats.
7. Daring in red
An outfit with that real “wow” factor, the basic bright red half-sleeved top with a round neckline can be enhanced by the red palazzo trousers making it a real statement look. Add red heels or sandals and a red handbag with a gold chain strap to really step up this monochrome look.
8. Active in grey
Athleisure looks are the easiest way to achieve the monochrome trend. A sleeveless sports t-shirt in grey with the contrasting white Kappa logo paired with grey joggers designed with white panels down the sides will make you ready for your workout. Throw on a dark grey jacket and sneakers in a similar shade to take this look to the next level.
