How to wear monochrome

Monochrome. It’s one of the secrets to looking effortlessly chic and is such an easy way to elevate your look, without putting in a lot of effort. It’s a go-to style secret that fashionistas, insta-grammers and celebrities regularly fall back on.

Break away from the norm

When it comes to wearing monochrome, all black is the easy option; it’s easy, effortless, and you can’t really go wrong with an all-black look. But sometimes it’s good to break out of your comfort zone. Try something a little different like all white if your colour palette is simpler or if you like earthy tones, go for a full khaki or camel-toned look.

Texture & more texture

One of the best tips for wearing monochrome is to play with texture. Instead of simply picking a statement-making focal piece, it’s about adding an element of interest to your outfit, with fabrics like satin, tweed boucle, linen, silk chiffon, wool or a classic cotton.  This simple Franchetti Bond Chenille handbag and suede heels inject texture to this mono outfit. It’s a simple way to create a bit of depth to your outfit, while maintaining an element of subtle contrast.

Playful accessories

Whether it’s a bold red lipstick, a flirty pair of earrings, a quirky shoe or a statement bag. A playful accessory can draw some attention away from your full monochrome look.

Add a touch of fun to an all-black look, try going all out and go for a statement-making colour pop, like a clashing bag, or a vibrant pair of shoes. Take this Franchetti Bond outfit which combines the city short look with a pop of vibrant fuchsia on this elegant wrap embellished with diamante.
