Monochromatic: Thumbs up or down?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Once in a while there comes a trend that I fall head over heels with. This winter it's all about the monochromatic look for me. There is something so beautifully laidback about this head-to-toe same-colour craze. And to be frank, I love the idea of mixing and matching different tints of the same hue to create an outfit that feels comfy and looks equally snazzy. Darlings, are you on the monochromatic trend-wagon this season? What’s your favourite colour to wear from head-to-toe? xo

P.S: Other awesome trends: tweed, tomboy and the ever trendy geek-chic glasses.

Is it lame to say sometimes up, sometimes down. I can't make up my mind. The red might be too much for example...but greys, browns and camels I think you can pull off!

Thumbs all the way up! I wear a lot of blue. That and black. Love these!

This type of look is good on some but not on others, but I adore all black;-)

it would be overwhelming in some colors like reds or pinks ,but it would be great in black or tan and brown :)

I love monochrome! (Maybe that's because I own a closet full of clothes that fall within only three color categories, so it's easy) Ha ha! I think it's a really pretty, clean look though!

Sara Szatmary said...

Thumbs way up. In fact, today I'm wearing various shades of white.

Tish said...

Oh I love them! Especially the fuzzy bird looking one! Swoon...

i don't think i could pull it off, but i think, depending on the person, it works. it just doesn't work for everyone. where that line is, i'm not sure.

I love monochromatic looks, especially when it comes to white. But really any color. It can just look so bold.

Mandy said...

thumbs up.
especially that grey ensemble!

BlondeMuse said...

love it, especially in white and cream. xo

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I love going monochromatic, as long as there is a variety of textures - that guarantees that the outfit isn't flat and you don't look like a big blotch of color :-)

katie said...

LyddieGal said...
