Following my decision to re-post deleted posts from my blog, I’m focusing on this monochromatic look in this post. A more detailed explanation of the monochrome trend is up on my blog in a post titled (https://mignolly.com/2020/02/01/that-monochrome-moment/) – if you’re still new to this trend.
In this post, I’m wearing a bright orange dress that looks red, depending on the light (in fact, you can see that in the pictures). I absolutely love the dramatic puffy sleeves because they make this dress fun, fresh and interesting, which is always a classic. Picking my shoes was a no-brainer as I chose my bright red shoes – which look orange, also depending on the light.
I put a twist on this look by pairing it with a bright yellow, red and orange ankara purse – red and orange to keep with the monochrome look and yellow to balance the gold highlights in the outfit. To finish off, I accessorized with studs and a chunky gold necklace to match the gold studs on the bell sleeves.
On a side note, I feel like the monochromatic trend should no longer be referred to as a trend, because it has been around for so long and it has proved itself to be a mainstay in fashion. It feels more like a classic look that though basic, can make you look elegant, polished and sophisticated, once done right. It’s an easy go-to combination that makes you stand out without looking like you’re trying too hard.
This outfit is the perfect #outfitinspo for post- lockdown outings such as dinners, cocktails, date nights, birthday parties, basically, any dressy event (that isn’t formal). With all this downtime we have, now is a good time to create go-to monochrome looks for something stylish and put together, without any effort at all.
