With the constant rollout of trends, it’s easy to get lost in the wave of it all. And especially for the new season, some of us are in the process of updating our wardrobe to transition from the colder months. While some trends may last longer than other, a lot of them actually aren’t as versatile. Sometimes it’s a better strategy to focus on classic pieces and give the spotlight on colors more than fleeting styles.
If you’re feeling sick of everything in your closet, we’ve got the one trick you can do to rework some pieces you already have. Best of all, you can spin it however you want—from laidback to multi-layering, monochromatic dressing is the answer to look effortlessly chic.
Play with textures—a knit sweater is a great laidback match to a fluid skirt. You can even try a graphic sweater and a tulle skirt in the same hue for a mix of casual and romantic. Bonus points if you manage to pair them with some fun boots.
You can never go wrong with tailoring and taking a page from It model, Soo Joo’s sleek style, it’s definitely something to make you stand out. One key to this is a long coat to be the highlight piece to your whole ensemble.
Monochrome doesn’t always have to mean an outfit of literally all the same colors. You can mix it up with complementing shades for a coordinated look, such as going all warm with brown, yellow, and burnt orange.
If there’s one cool way of looking chic in the office, it’s suiting. If you’re worried about looking too corporate, you can pair the look with street pieces such as graphic tees and trackies in a matching hue for a more laidback take in place to tailored trousers.
Go for pastels with airy knits and light trousers in hues of similar tones such as baby blue and pastel coballt and cerulean for an ensemble that’s Spring/Summer ready.
