A monochromatic look is one of the easiest, if not the easiest look there is. If you follow along with my blog articles, you know I have shared a couple of articles where I shared tips on how to create and style a monochrome look.
On today’s blog post, I decided to choose the color green since it’s the color for Summer, with different shades popping all around social media. Green as has fast become one of my favorite colors since styling it and even before it was projected to be the color for Summer. It depicts prosperity, nature and growth.
I mean is green not gorgeous by itself and together with other colors? Who knew green will become huge for Summer, especially when you consider the typical neutral tones people project as being complimentary for the season.
Styling a monochromatic green look shouldn’t be a hassle, once you know the basic tips for creating a monochromatic look. First, make sure all your pieces are in the same family of color. The hues must not be the same but of the same color palette. From my outfit, you can tell I have Olive green, grass green (which is new to me in terms of shade naming), and neon green. Although these shades have different hues, they are of the same green palette, hence they will be easy to style. Same principle applies to other colors when it comes to creating a monochromatic look.
When it comes to styling, you can pair different shades or exactly the same shade of green if you are lucky enough to find them. Most times, you never get to have the exact shade of green in all your items and few times you are lucky. Times where you aren’t and need to create a monochromatic look, just think of the flow and balance you want to achieve. Do you want to wear a darker shade for your upper body, a lighter shade as your bottom or vice versa. You also take into consideration the accessories you intend to use, and how you can create a cohesive look from each piece. You don’t want to have a green look that is all over the place, without any form or balance. Items should be carefully considered as to what goes where and how.
From my images above, I wanted a darker shade for up and a lighter shade for my bottom, while I played with the black on my bag by pairing my entire look with the black straw mules to create a striking contrast with the green.
