Why You Should Dress In All One Color

For some reason several of my clients have looked at me like I’m a bit bonkers, when I’ve suggested they try wearing a couple of their wardrobe pieces of the same color, together in one outfit.

Putting a grey top with a grey skirt, a navy sweater with a pair of navy pants or a white shirt with white jeans.

I’m not sure if it reminds them of wearing their old school uniform or if they were taught it was not the done thing, but many consider dressing head-to-toe in one color, a fashion faux pas or boring.  And it’s not.

In fashion terms, wearing only one color or shades of a color, is referred to as monochromatic dressing.

Monochromatic dressing is not only fashionable and stylish, it’s also easy (you don’t have to worry too much about mixing and matching) lengthening (it can make you look taller) and slimming (who doesn’t love that).


But while dressing in a column of color is relatively simple, it still requires some thought and effort.

Keep in mind, if you give this look a try, that interesting decoration and/or various textured fabrics will be what makes your outfit chic, rather than flat and dull.
