Try These 3 Chic Tips For Monochromatic Dressing In Winter

With Sam Stewart

Winter is the perfect season to play with color and experiment with your wardrobe. Monochromatic dressing in winter is an excellent style choice to look chic and refined on cold days. And it’s a great way to stay warm and look stylish. Whether you’re wearing black, blue, cream, or pink, you can create chic and unique looks with just one color! Try out these tips and find your own style this winter.

Tip #1) Start With A Foundation

Start with a base color such as cream, black, grey, navy, or camel. This is the main color story that you will work with. It can be a dress, a top and pants/skirt, or a jumpsuit. Each piece can be different brands or colors as long as the undertone is the same. For example, I am wearing a cream bralette from one brand, and knit pants from another brand. They both have a warm (golden) undertone, so we are good!

Tip #2) Layering Rule of 3

Layering can make a monochromatic look more interesting and dynamic. Choose different textures and finishes to create a unique, eye-catching look. In the first look, I added an oversized cardigan to the base layer. Adding that third piece (the rule of 3s) instantly elevates the outfit as well as adds warmth! In the second photo, I’m wearing shades of beige, camel, and brown for a tonal monochromatic cohesive look! The 3rd layer ties it all together.

Tip #3) Accessorize

Accessorizing with a single color is an easy way to pull off a monochromatic look. Pick a single color and choose a hat, scarf, gloves, and/or a handbag in that color. Keep the look cohesive by making sure the accessories match in style and texture. I’m wearing mixed metals with gold and silver jewelry for a fun change of pace. My bag is beige with mixed metal hardware that ties in wonderfully with my jewelry. You can also throw on a hat which is a great accessory to look chic AND keep warmth for colder weather.

BONUS TIP For Sophistication

Take your outfit to the NEXT LEVEL by adding an additional layer! A coat in the same color family as your base/foundation layer will amp up that outfit in a second! Recently on a cold day, I wore this outfit (w/o the hat) to a doctor’s appointment and errands and received SO MANY compliments. It’s that extra layer!!!

Will you try a monochromatic look this winter?
