Dressing monotone technically means you are wearing the same look head to toe… so, now that Ive stated the obvious, we've also noticed the fun trend of dressing monotone and also allowing for the variance in color families.
Chanel showed dressing monotone in the truest sense of the word, but broke up the look with bold black and whites.
Rag and Bone's Samurai inspired collection was a gorgeous sea of navy….
…And Anna Sui's models walked down the runway in punches of blue, purple, and red with subtle strays into other parts of the color wheel…
Dressing Monotone is a classic. My favorite example is the beatnik Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. How chic is she when she dances around that smokey cafe in a black turtleneck and stretch pants? Any color can be just as cohesive and chic (And we'll get into the joys of a noir wardrobe later this week). Below I put together some monotone sea green options based on the Chanel FW/09 walk.
PS. One of you Dedicated readers just NEEDS to get the vintage Etsy shoes and Dress. The match is just too perfect for words. ha ha.
