Indian Fashion Blogger: How To Style Monotone Outfits Without Looking Boring
Follow these 4 simple steps and you will be ready to rock your monotone dress:
1. Do the basics : Don’t jump into the bandwagon of monotone dressing with bright or poppy colors. Instead, start with neutrals colors like blacks, greys, browns or dark blues.
Just like Lisha, who paired her waist high slit maxi top with her jet black leggings. The Indo-western outfit is comfortable yet stylish. It looks effortless, like she has just wore her favorite clothes together and made this gorgeous outfit. You can also pair your neutral tops or kurtas with jeans, shorts and jeggings.
2. Accessorize : Accessorizing a monotone outfit is a must. Without which the outfit can look very dull and plain. So, grab your favorite hat or open your stash of jewelry and pick out a contrasting necklace or a pair of beautiful earrings!
Lisha, has perfectly accessorized her all-black monotone outfit with a big, chunky Bohemian necklace. The necklace adds the right amount of oomph to the outfit and makes her look well put together. A statement neckpiece is the easiest way to perk up a casual outfit from a day to night routine.
3. Coordinate your shoes and bag : A very important factor in the monotone outfit are the shoes and the bag. They are the *real deal breakers*. Make sure the bag and the shoes you wear with your outfit fall in the same family of colors and compliment your monotone clothing.
Lisha added a pop of colour in her all-black Indo-Western outfit with a fuchsia pink and blue Potli bag carefully coordinated with poppy pink Kohlapuri sandals. The pink not only brightens up her look but also adds the required glam.
4. The Right Makeup : Now that your outfit is on point, the makeup should fit the look seamlessly. Remember the rule, focus on either the eyes or lips. You can pair your monotone outfit with a bright lip and simple eyes. Or else, take cues from Lisha, who paired a nude lip color- L’oreal Maple Mocha with earthy-brown smokey eyes. Her side swept loose curls complete the look perfectly.
With these 4 tips, you can never go wrong with your monotone outfit. Now, run to your wardrobe and start pairing your monotone clothes with the desired accessories to look perfect!
