Fashion to me is a priority, but more than a priority it is my individuality wrapped up in the arms of trends that takes a flight to a land of everything chic and classy!
Monochrome and minimalism styling is a
fashionistas hardest work of fashion. It is a job that doesn’t require skills,
but the passion of dignity, creativeness, motive and thinking power. Yes! More
than a job it is a duty of showing a work of art needing a place in the
industry filled with trends.
For e.g. If a person is getting enticed and
confident with the look he/she is putting on then it means the work was
successful and prior need no amount of polishing. But when you have so much
going on in the fashion industry itself, there seem less amount of time for
trends, but most amount of time for monochrome fashion because monochrome
fashion is not something that will go by time.
It is a fashion statement that has come here to
stay forever. Plus, this style of fashion is not some fancy and polished out
words of fashion industry that makes an individual take a journey to a fashion
land, but is more of a field of showing what sophistication and classy looks
when it is all put together on a gorgeous body.
Why do we need a monochrome fashion when there
are trends that look good and pops up every day in our instagram page?
To answer that I would say, “trends doesn’t really last years or even months”. It comes, it pops up and then leaves. During this period whatever trendy clothes that a person has bought goes down the lane. Their clothes just pile up in the wardrobe and there is nothing you can do about it, so instead of piling up your untready clothes, why not you opt for something that is going to last for years and decades. Plus, if done right a monochromatic dress can be just as show-stopping as a statement jacket or a patterned dress. Hence, if you are ready, then let me walk you through the ins and outs about monochrome fashion, monochromatic colours and how to actually style the existing pieces of your outfits in a monochromatic outfit.
What is Monochrome Fashion:
If you think monochrome fashion is dull, boring
and one colour, then Oh My God! It is not, because in fashion terms, it is a

similar shade and different textures to make your outfit look all put together.

on white, but is something that can be done with any choice of your colour and

For styling, you can go to your wardrobe and take
out everything. Select a colour that you would want to wear. While selecting,

way. Now, that you have all the clothes out and the colour is also selected,

everything together, keep in mind the shoes too, cause when your whole outfit
is monochrome then you don’t want a pop of colour to ruin the style.
The Act of balancing:
From how to look classy to how to look trendy, balancing plays a major role and is a key in any type of outfit. Whether you’re going for a trendy outfit or a monochromatic outfit, you need to achieve a balance in your outfit.

play with. So, at the very beginning of your monochrome styling, play with
these colours and then go for other variants like red, teal, maroon, pink, rust
