Trend Alert: Monochromatic

Summer is here and so are the summer trends. One trend that I am sure is here to stay is head-to-toe monochrome. This effortless combination provides instant class and is quite easy to pull together with items you already have in your closet. Today I am going to share some inspiration courtesy of a few of my favorite style bloggers, as well as provide some rules of thumb when it comes to rocking this fresh summer look.

The Pink Peonies

Rachel of The Pink Peonies does monochrome in mint (another summer trend) which looks exceptional paired with neutral accessories and brunette locks. In this outfit, Rachel has paired a peplum skirt with a sweater in a very close shade of mint–the texture of the peplum and sweater compliment each other nicely. Rachel is known for her classy ensembles and often works the monochromatic trend into many of her daily looks.

Little Miss Fearless

Amanda of Little Miss Fearless is working the monochrome trend in head-to-toe pink. This monochromatic look works especially well because she has paired several different shades of the same color together–this method is great for adding dimension. The ‘coral’ shade of pink that Amanda is wearing looks great against her tan skin and blonde hair.

Cupcakes and Cashmere

Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere pulls off a classic take on the monochromatic trend–head-to-toe black. Head-to-toe black adds an instant glam factor that is sure to turn heads. Black is slimming and looks great on just about any frame, so if you are a little nervous to dive head first into the monochromatic trend, this is an easy transition that will have you looking fantastic.
