How to Make a Monochromatic Outfit/Monochrome Outfit Inspiration

May 3, 2021 Atlanta, GA, USA

Monochrome is a huge trend for 2021. While this is not a new trend, I have been seeing it a ton during this spring and expect it to continue into the summer, fall, and winter as well. This is generally an easy trend to recreate, but these three tips will make the outfit exceptional.


  1. Use a lighter and darker shade of your chosen color. If you want to do green, try doing a light green like sage or mint with a dark green like forest or olive.
  2. Have 3 pieces of clothing in the same color category - A purse, scarf, headband, blazer, jacket, etc.
  3. Buy Matching sets - This is for people who struggle to put monochromatic outfits together. This way, you already have two pieces known to match and you just need to add a third item in the same color scheme.

Now that you have the tips, let's get inspired! Below, you can find some women's outfit inspiration to help style the color you have in mind. These are two YouTube videos, but if you are just wanting some quick inspo, keep scrolling for pictures.
