Have you ever thought that wearing all the same color in an outfit would be boring? The truth is that monochromatic looks can be beautiful and be a simple way to put a chic outfit together. In fact, wearing head to toe of one color can be as striking as wearing a bold pattern or vivid color. This makes monochromatic looks perfect for holiday.

I have always thought of doing a monochromatic red outfit. Red can be overpowering and so much of it made me unsure how this would turn out. The end product was pretty and fun and I loved the depth that it gave my holiday look.

A few tips…

  • Make sure when matching your look that your color has the same undertone. You can create a monochromatic look with slightly different shades of the same color. The important part is picking a shade where the undertone matches. If you are looking for a green and it has a blue undertone stick with that when matching your second item.
  • Monochromatic outfits can still involve pattern and texture. With my red outfit I picked colors that were the same but the skirt was silky and had a shine to it while the sweater was textured and a bit more muted. Together it works as the perfect combination of casual and dressy.
  • Monochromatic looks can go beyond two pieces. Add a coat of the same hue or shoes or even jewelry. All of the layers will add to the beauty of the outfit.
