Monochromatic Mix-Up

Monochromatic Mix-Up

Hey Lovelies,

Over the past year, I’ve seen this skirt worn a million ways. Well maybe not a million, but a lot – so I decided to try something different by using a purple monochromatic color scheme.

According to Wikipedia, monochromatic colors are all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue. By using a range of contrasting tones, they can attract attention and create focus. The use of a monochromatic color also provides a strong sense of visual cohesion.

To mix it up a bit, I combined textures and shapes by introducing a black and white wide striped skater skirt with iconic knitwear zig zag pumps.

The result was a monochromatic ensemble with depth and dimension through the use of connotative color.

See below to recreate this look.

Don’t be afraid to try something new.  After all, what do you have to lose?
