Happy Monday! Welcome to a discussion on fashion classics: monochromatic style.
As I surf fashion online, I have seen more and more brands advertising monochromatic styles.
It has almost been presented as a fashion trendin a couple of places…but, I would call this a fashion classic.
Monochromatic dressing, which many of us call a column of color, has been popular for years.
I see it as a fashion classic especially for women over 50.
It is a tried and true wardrobe favorite, which works well for those who love it.
Years ago a fellow blogger told me that her mother-in-law only wears monochromatic style underneath a variety of toppers.
That was her daily choice of dress.
Here are the reasons I believe this fashion classic works for so many women.
FASHION CLASSICS: MONOCHROMATIC STYLE: THE WHY
I personally believe this fashion classic is popular for two reasons:
For those who basically own tops and bottoms in matching colors, then just add a variety of ways to top off the looks from jackets, to kimonos, to cardigans, to ruanas, etc. the closet is simple to organize.
They are wearing one column of color every day and just having fun with the tops or accessories as the icing on the cake.
The ease of organizing a wardrobe this way is attractive and does make it a fashion classic.
I know that I for one began to wear this fashion classic as a way to slim down my style…and appear smaller than I am.
Often times, monochromatic dressing can be magic and take off at least five pounds or more.
Just remember, for this to work your fashion classic monochromatic style must be the same matching colors.
I think we would agree that not all navy blues are the same…not all blacks are the same…and on and on.
In order for your two piece monochromatic column of color to be exact they are best purchased from the same brand and color line….or else it might not have the slimming effect.
In fact, different shades might chop your body into pieces and add the look of weight.
The women I know who love monochromatic fashion classics, usually purchase from:
DILLARDS (Click here, then go to Sales and Clearance at the top and check out the sale prices for Eileen Fisher)
I do love this way of dressing as a fashion classic. It can be a very polished look. However, due to my creative bent I would get bored wearing monochromatic style every day.
Also, there are women who consider this style to be “aging,” and I can see why they would say that…to me it is all about what it put on top of the column of color.
So, what do you think? Fan? Not a fan? Could you see owning an entire wardrobe of monochromatic pieces with toppers?
I am so curious to know what you think about these fashion classics.
FASHION CLASSICS FOR TUX
Doggy fashion classics must include sweaters for colder weather.
I recently bought Tux this Paw & Tail Reindeer Christmas Sweater from JCP…he deserved a perk for the holidays.
At these prices, I almost ordered two, but reminded myself that we do not have that much cold weather…and he is a fluffy one!
See all JCP Dog Sweaters…a good place to treat your special one.
Ok, ladies…I would love to know what you think about this fashion classic today. I believe you will be seeing more of it next year.
Let us know and make sure that you……………………………
