3 Reasons To Wear Monochromatic Outfits

When it comes to Monochromatic Outfits, many may think it’s boring because they associate it with grey, black and white. However, we shouldn’t underestimate how put together and transformative monochromatic outfits are. That’s why I want to share 3 reasons to start wearing monochromatic outfits.

3 Reasons To Create A Monochromatic Outfit:

1. Wearing different shades of 1 color to create an overall tonal look, make putting your outfit together simpler and cleaner. You will be surprised it is as striking as wearing a bold pattern or color. The colors can also be patterns instead of solid pieces. This makes your look even more interesting.

2. Experimenting with texture within the same palette, adds depth and dimension to your outfit. This allows you too highlight or downplay certain areas of your body. For example, wear a dark color pants or skirt to not emphasize your hips or a belt to accentuate your tiny waist.

3. It’s cost effective! You can easily put together an outfit with classic and older pieces in your wardrobe. You can achieve the posh and polished style without buying anything at all. Im pretty sure we all have black, white and grey pieces we can put together easily. When you feel comfortable creating monochromatic outfits, you can start using other colors.

How To Successfully Reinvent Your Style In Three Steps!

Over time, everyone ‘s style should evolve. Especially if you’re changing your lifestyle or making a career change, it’s not easy to reinvent your style. If you’re not knowledgeable, you can make a few mistakes. That’s why I want to let you know how to successfully reinvent your style in three steps! 

1. Defining Your Style

Pinterest

As a Stylist, before I try to reinvent my client’s style, it’s imperative that I get to know them well. This will give me great insight on what you personally like or dislike for your image, and what you can begin experimenting with.

In 2020, we no longer need to rip pages out of magazines. We can easily gather inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram. Usually when you look at your pictures you see a trend and similarities in colors and clothing trends. 

Are you going from over the top trendy to completely elegant and refined? 

Or are you rebellious and revealing, and would like to eventually have a more sophisticated and timeless look? 

Remember: Getting to know one’s style is an ongoing process because our personal style can always change! 

The most important thing is that you get more and more knowledgable about your body shape. Know what trends work with your body type. And to be honest,  reinventing your style will be much easier. 

2.Closet Detox

Before going out to purchase new clothing, I always recommend doing a closet detox. Now that you know your personal style, you can edit your closet. These are some of the few questions I ask to decide on what will be removed or kept:

  • Have you worn it in one (1) year ?
  • Is the quality worth keeping or donating?
  • Is it outdated?

I will then give you expert advice on pieces to keep; which ones no longer suit you after seeing you in a few items, and what’s missing from your wardrobe. 

At the end of our session, you’ll have a streamlined wardrobe consisting only of items that work for you. And, also a list of suggested pieces to add to your wardrobe.

 

3. Plan for the Future

Yay you have a clutter free closet!

You can now start adding new pieces to your wardrobe. It could be daunting shopping at times, but try to not overthink it!

To figure out if an item is worth getting, I ask myself these questions:

  • Do I really love it, and will I love it for a while?
  • Can I pair it with a few things in my current wardrobe?
  • Would I purchase it if I had an unlimited budget?

If you find it hard to answer these questions, you should probably not make that purchase.

When you want to successfully reinvent your style, don’t make a drastic change. Experiment with a few items, but it should make sense for your personal style and lifestyle. 

Eventually, your closet will reflect your reinvented style. It will reflect who you are, and getting ready in the morning will be much easier! 

 

Happy Styling 🙂
