Monochrome Outfits Are Always a Good Idea, but They're Really Having a Moment
Matching sets are everywhere, but at Fashion Week, we scoped out the street style and determined that the DIY version is just as cool. Otherwise known as the monochrome outfit, the look consists of all one color, but perhaps in varying tones or different materials. (So your green cable-knit sweater might be a few shades darker than your kelly-lime trousers, for example.) We highly suggest you jump on the bandwagon and capture the trend in your arsenal of quick-trick outfits for Spring — especially because this may not even require any shopping.
Take a peek in your closet, and it's safe to say you'll have at least one pair of pants or a skirt in your power color. Now check your tops. It's there too, right? Ahead, we've rounded up some genius ways to style out this look so you're less matchy-matchy than you would be if you were wearing a combination that actually came together. Plus, in full monochrome, passersby have every reason to bestow you with compliments since you put this outfit together on your own. Scroll down to find your favorite take on the trend, and shop for some basics if you need to while you're at it.
