A really fun way to play with your style is something that you might think is way too "out there". When I say, "wear only one color!" I hope that you don't picture yourself head-to-toe in the same exact shade of bright red...

That wouldn't be good. But there are easy ways to successfully style a monochrome look.

Here are three EASY ways to wear monochrome looks.

Play with materials.

Use different textures of different materials throughout the outfit, to break up the monotony.

Here I've done this with a pleather skirt and some satin tops.

Play with hues.

Don't try to match the same exact tones of one color. Instead, style colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, like pink and red. You can also pair yellow with beige or orange with browns.

Start Subtle.

Match only two or three items of the same color with an otherwise all white or black look. This is a great way to showcase the monochrome without over-doing it.

And to fully embrace the style, incorporate monochrome from your head to your toes. Think about matching a headband or hat, colorful earrings, a handbag, and shoes!

A monochrome looks gets the point across that you are a refined self-stylist who likes to have fun with her wardrobe!

Let me know how your style adventures go...
