is always evolving. It is all about playing with colours,
styles and textures. This season monochromatic dressing is
in vogue. Technically, dressing monochromatically is wearing
one color (any color) from head to toe. The advantage in dressing
in one colour is it makes everybody look slimmer and taller
instantly. Monochromatic dressing creates a vertical illusion
that makes you taller and slimmer, when your clothing produces
a strong vertical effect.
can use different textures of the same colour to make your
outfit more interesting. Even if the colour of your trouser
and top is the same, but the variation in textures would give

fabrics; you can even add patterns without ever getting near
you do not feel like dressing in one colour then you can use
a little variation in the colour palette however don't lose
the monochromatic magic. For example mix subtle dark colors,
such as navy and deep loden green, mink brown and charcoal
gray, deep wine and raisin, or any of the above colour with

unbroken vertical line.
can also blend lighter and darker shades of one color to give
that monochromatic look to your outfit. The most slenderizing

with the lighter tones nearer your face. Blends in the same
color family give the impression of solid colour unity and
make for a longer and leaner look. Plus, they are quite chic
and very sophisticated to boot.
