A healthy dose of monochrome never hurt anyone or their wardrobe. People in fashion wear monochrome in shades of black or navy all the time and they are constantly looking amazing – so why not you? The idea here is to play around with the different shades of the singular colour you want to wear. Light on top, dark on the bottom or vice-versa. The rules are up to you to adopt (and maybe break). Try different textures of the same tone of grey – you may find in natural light, the different textures start to look like different tonal values. Monochrome might be about one but it doesn’t at all mean boring. Explore the cuts, hues and volumes available and mix and match to suit your needs (and wallet).
