Trends and Fashion: Monochromatic

The monochromatic look has been used by designers such as, Stella McCartney, Gucci and Carolina Herrera. These timeless and classical designers agree that the simplest statements can make the biggest impact.

Monochromatic Fashion was usually worn in only black and white, but this season the trend has transformed into different hues. Color has become acceptable, but only if its tone on tone. The color scheme of this style is visually appealing. White and black is the highest contrast combination and these colors never go out of fashion, thus making them the obvious choice. It draws thought without being over-the–top.

The greatest advantage of using a monochromatic color scheme is the fact that it allows the wearer to add texture and patterns in better variation. The Monochromatic Street-Style look combines stripes, graphical prints, checks and polka-dots, all in the same color, or shade of color. Bright and pastel colors can be used; so long they are well balanced with the rest of the outfit.
