If you have one take away from today, let it be this: tonal dressing is a sure fire way to step up your fashion game now.
Defined as wearing head-to-toe shades of the same color, or same hue, monochrome has emerged as a major power player for 2018. And for good reason. Insanely chic with minimum effort is a winning combination every time. Not to mention there is a certain je ne sais quoi about the look. Committing to a single color gives off a subtle coolness and confidence. Not just anyone is donning canary head to toe. Yes, there is an art to such color mastery, but I am here to lead the way to foolproof tonality. Read on to crack the color code and shop my look below:
A slinky slip dress under a nubby sweater or a poplin shirt under a leather jacket equals instant interest and dimension.
2. BOLD ACCESSORIES:
Contrasting accessories in complimentary shades will prevent you from looking like a straight up crayon. Enamel earrings or a mini bag are great of-the-moment options.
3. FAINT OF HEART:
Even if color is not your strong suit, you can still partake. Muted hues like camel, white, beige, and grey are anyone’s game.
4. HIGH LOW:
Tonal dressing is the perfect way to incorporate your dressier and casual pieces. That sequence skirt you haven’t worn since New Years? Pair with a T shirt. Floor length gown? Throw a blazer over it with sneakers. The singular color palette helps merge the dichotomy.
5. OF ALL SHAPES & SIZES:
Skim any issue of Vogue and you will see that voluminous silhouettes are reining supreme. A uniform color scheme is the perfect excuse to experiment with such shape and volume.
