There is something so chic and stylish about a monochromatic outfit. If you are not sure what a monochromatic outfit is, it is an outfit that consists of one color. It doesn’t have to be the same exact color from head to toe. You can put together different shades and textures of the same color, which creates a great sophisticated look that flows very nicely. I want to show you guys the tips and tricks of how to wear a monochromatic look.

What’s great is that literally anyone can rock this look because you can choose whatever color you want. Everyone has at least one color that they love to wear. So the first step is choosing a color you love and are comfortable wearing. Comfort and confidence is key since you will be wearing the same color from head to toe. If you are new to monochromatic outfits and not sure where to start, then I would start with neutral colors like black, gray, or white.

My next tip is to mix textures. Think of denim, leather, cotton, suede, wool, sequins. For instance, you can choose black faux leather leggings with a chunky knit black sweater and black suede booties. This adds visual interest, depth, and dimension to your outfit.

For my monochromatic look, I wanted to go with a burgundy/blush color combo. I paired this soft and cozy blush mock neck sweater with these burgundy high-waisted stretch pants. To complete the look, I wore suede bow pumps. This entire outfit is from Ann Taylor.

If you know me, you know I love comfy sweaters. This sweater is super comfy. I love the color and fit. This is a perfect sweater that will keep you nice and cozy all winter. You can wear it to work with a pair of slacks, wear it out tucked into a skirt, or wear it casually with a pair of jeans. I love the versatility. I am wearing a size small. This sweater also comes in a blue and it is currently 60% off.

These high-waisted pants are both comfy and chic. They are stretchy and super flattering. These pants actually have a sleek ankle slit in the front. I actually had to hem the slit since the pants fit long on me :/ but I still love them! I am wearing a size 0 in petite. You can get them for 50% off using the code “WRAPITUP“.

I am obsessed with these pumps. I love the bow detail and the color. This will definitely add a nice pop of color to an outfit. I thought it went perfectly with my sweater and pants, completing the monochromatic look. These pumps fit true to size. They are currently on sale and you can even apply an additional 50% off with the code I mentioned above.

This outfit makes me feel like a boss babe – walking the streets of New York City! You can find all my outfit details below.
