How to Wear All One Color

Wearing all white is super chic, just add neutral accessories

Wearing an outfit that is made up of all of the same color can look very chic and be very slimming. How many times have you seen a woman wearing head to toe black and think she looks fabulous and slim? Now while you’ve seen women look great in this assemble, it can be tricky. You don’t want to end up looking like someone’s Grandma or a Goth chick. Wearing all one color takes some finesse.


Keep everything black or navy, just add a white blouse for contrast
First, pick a neutral color. While some people can pull of wearing a tomato red suit or bright yellow and maybe even Kelly green, many of us mere mortals look a little silly. Stick with beige, grey, black, navy or even white. You can add a pop of color with an accessory such as a graphic handbag or bright pumps. Also keep everything conservative. Now is not the time to pick asymmetrical lines, cropped sleeves or weird necklines, keep it simple.


Keep everything the same color then add some animal themed jewelry
If you like the idea of all one color but are fearful of making that kind of commitment, try wearing the pants or a skirt with a blouse that is the same color. Add a jacket in a contrasting color and you get a similar look. Add accessories in the same color as the pants and blouse. Think black everything with beige, cobalt blue or even a red jacket for a high impact look.


A Swiss dot blouse adds texture
Another great idea for that all over color look is add in some texture. A nubby tweed skirt with a silk blouse and a fuzzy sweater all in the same hue works great. You can also add patterns that are subtle. A white eyelet skirt with a white silk blouse with Swiss dots adds understated variations while maintaining the overall whiteness of your look. Wearing all one color can work, just be careful of the hues and tones and everything will come out awesome.
