Monochromatic dressing for Fall: It’s BOLD and I like it.

Wearing one color is anything but boring! It’s easy and figure-flattering…

and very cost effective in this case: this sweater is $19.99 and the pants are $34.99! You actually might not need to buy anything at all to achieve this chic, polished style! Shop your closet. I am 99.9% sure you have the pieces in your wardrobe to achieve this look.

In fashion terms, monochromatic dressing means wearing separates of one color that have different textures and/or similar shades of that color for an overall tonal look. While mixing patterns can look a bit fussy and color-blocking a bit kitschy, wearing a single shade is a simpler, cleaner approach to putting an outfit together. In fact, when you keep your overall outfit within the same color hue, the outcome can be just as striking as wearing a bold pattern or vivid color.

I was 100% inspired by ALL the monochromatic outfits I saw at NYFW in September. The fashion girls were incorporating new, contemporary purchases with older, classic pieces, proving that this fall and winter trend is here to stay and oh-so-fabulous.

  1. I have been living for monochromatic looks too! I posted a red monochromatic look a few weeks ago, and I am toying with the idea of posting another one. It’s so chic, classy and effortless.

    Love the white boot pairing here- I am too scared to go the white boot route- I am just starting to warm up to sock boots lol. You look fab!

  2. Looking fierce in all red, and I love it! I’m a big fan of the monochromatic trend, but I haven’t tried it with a bold color yet. You’re giving me inspiration, and I love the white boots!

  3. I have been starting to see this trend more often. I think this color looks fantastic on you. The boots really pop.

  4. I love this fresh fall look and monochromatic concept. You look stunning and cozy comfortable in that bright red outfit.

  5. I too like monochromatic looks. Red is also my favorite color but I hardly have red outfits. Most of my clothes are black or dark colored. I must say that red looks great on you

  6. That outfit is absolutely everything!!! I love monochromatic fashion and I love that you went for it with such a bold, fierce colour! You look amazing!

  7. Girl, monochromatic dressing is my jam! I’m obsessed with this all red look. Such a statement, and I love how you styled the red with the pop of white in the booties! I just snagged a pair of white booties, and I can’t stop wearing them!
