Monochrome is IN
Whether you prefer tone-on-tone or stark contrast, there’s a perfect monochromatic look for you. Here, find Fashion Fabrics Club’s roundup of monochrome looks you can wear now and well through the spring season.
Try this polished-yet-relaxed look for the weekend (or to seriously up your casual Friday game if you work in a creative office), of a crisp white cotton button-up underneath a black cotton twill long blazer with frayed black denim and pair of slip-on sneakers.
For those days when the alarm fails (or you hit snooze a few too many times) but the day requires a look that’s totally put-together, a single-piece toss-on is essential. For something that’s easy but also super elegant and flattering, try an all-black cotton jersey maxi dress. Added design details—like the mesh cut out and side slit—make it pop.
Looking for something a little lighter (in fabric and color)? Try this preppy little all-white outfit: a mandarin-collared poplin button-up with a pleated chiffon skirt. Perfect for work, drinks after work, and all weekend long.
Yes, pattern lovers can rock the monochrome look. In fact, adding a print into the mix gives an added layer of intrigue. This look, a cotton black-and-white striped long sleeve with a thick double knit skirt is a great option for this in-between weather. Simply add tights on the more wintery days.
Another way to bring in a pattern is to put it at the bottom, like this look: herringbone cropped trousers, a white cotton button-up with a mixed-media long-sleeved sweater on top. (Style tip: This is a particularly great look for those with long legs and shorter torsos.)
