Fashion is all about retro styles and cuts this spring. With inspiration from the sixties, eighties and nineties, expect the Spring 13 season to be awash with monochrome, neon and shimmering patterns. One of the many trends for summer 2013 has emerged itself, both on and off the runway.  It has taken color blocking one step further—Monochromatic.



Monochrome is one of the simplest, most chic of looks to work whatever the year.  Monochrome never fails to gain attention when done well. If you don’t want to stress over mixing and matching the perfect outfit, monochromatic is the way to go, but avoid that overly solid look by throwing in a few different textures and accessories to jazz things up.



Wearing one color from top to bottom really works to elongate a petite frame. Monochrome dressing can slim down, add a chicness that was just absent before, and look effortless while actually being easy! Everyone has worn it, from the models to the fashion icons to the celebrities to us bloggers. Infinitesimal amounts of designers have showcased this classic look in a show.


But monochromatic doesn’t only mean wearing one hue top to bottom; you can wear the tints and shades of one hue also.



A literal interpretation of the monochromatic outfit is head to toe in one color. This can work incredibly well or look incredibly tacky. If you choose to go this route, make your outfit as simple as possible. A dress with matching sandals looks chic. On the other hand, matching slacks, shirt, jacket, shoes and accessories can look overdone or old-fashioned. Limit the number of pieces you wear and edit carefully.




Monochromatic dressing certainly has the potential to be very dull. To avoid this problem, tweak a monochromatic look with stylish cuts in the clothing.



Monochrome is capsule dressing and will stretch that tight budget.  Long after colored garments have faded into last season’s oblivion you will still be able to wear monochrome classics that stand the test of time.


And girls if you feel afraid of wearing a single color outfit with similar color accessories then don’t worry just wear contrasting color accessories with your dress but those accessories should be monochromatic.


So girls go and adopt this monochromatic fashion, and stay updated with fashion. Be fashionable!!!!!!
