In its most simplistic form, ‘monochrome’ can be broken down into ‘mono’ which means single and ‘chrome’ which means colour. So, dressing in a monochromatic outfit simply means dressing in one colour.

I’ve always been a fan of the monochrome trend and it has been around for so long, that it no longer feels like a trend. It is now such a mainstay in fashion. It’s become one of those basic combinations that done right can make you look classy, polished and sophisticated. It’s an easy go-to outfit that makes you stand out without looking like you’re trying too hard.

The simplicity of a monochromatic look means that you don’t need to splurge on different pieces or accessories to give this trend a go, as chances are, you already have a bunch of items in the same or similar colours. So, all you need to do is combine them properly.

To achieve a more cohesive monochromatic look, it’s better to wear varying shades of the same colour to prevent the look from being overwhelmed by a single colour. Also, try different textures if you’re using more or less the same shade, to prevent the look from becoming boring.

This dress is one that I’ve had for years, but it’s still one of my favourites. I paired it with similar peach shoes to solidify the monochromatic look, for a friend’s introduction. The lace texture of the dress contrasts nicely with the fuzzy and sleek texture of my shoes. For accessories, my wine purse and pink tassel earrings complement the look perfectly, even though they’re not actually the same colours.

This outfit is perfect for a dinner, cocktail, date night, birthday parties, basically, any dressy event (that isn’t formal). It’s the perfect option when you want to be the centre of attention without looking like you put in any effort at all.
