Here’s How You Can Style A Monochrome Look (When It’s Not Black Or White)

You can give your neutral coloured outfits some rest

We get it. Styling a monochrome look can be tough, especially when it’s not an all-black or white outfit. That’s the thing about neutral colours—they pair well with other tones. But how do you the opposite? While it can be challenging, it’s certainly not impossible. There are some handy tips you can make use of to ace that perfect look with one solid colour. If you’re wondering how, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. From bright tones to dark hues, here’s a guide that will help you get started on styling a monochrome look and get on with the trend.

Colour Pop
The simplest way to make a statement with your monotone outfit is by pairing it with an accessory of a contrasting shade. Take a cue from Ananya Panday's bold look.
Throw Some Shade
Who said you can't play with shades of the same colour? Diana Penty's look is all about that. She styled her lilac pantsuit with millennial purple stilettos, making it a sharp look.
Explore Cuts And Silhouettes
Ditch a simple silhouette and go bold with an outfit consisting of unique cuts. Whether it's a peek-a-boo cut at the waist or a distinct neckline, borrow some inspiration from Kareena Kapoor Khan who shows you how to add some edge to your look.
Texture Play
Textures give a 3D effect and make a strong case when it comes to acing the monochrome trend. Let Jacqueline Fernandez's ensemble inspire your next look. Pick a dress that is ruched all over, pair it with a mini handbag and vinyl strappy stilettos, and you're all set.
Have Fun With Fabrics  
A little similar to playing with textures, this style tip is another way of standing out in the crowd with a solo shade. Take a leaf out of Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's book to show you how to grab someone's attention by experimenting with fabrics. Opt for a satin shirt, pair it with a leather skirt, and complete the look with suede boots and a leather bag.
Minimal Effort, Maximum Impact
Here's proof from Karisma Kapoor that less is more when it comes to pulling off a bold and bright solid colour. Accessorise with stilettos of the same shade, restrict your jewellery to mini earrings, opt for a no-makeup makeup look and let the outfit do all the talking.
When In Doubt, Choose Black Or White 
Just like an all-black or white ensemble goes well with every colour, it also works the other way around. Take notes from Tara Sutaria and give your co-ord set an upgrade with a black bustier and white footwear.
Denim Does Wonders
Don't want to pair your monochrome look with black or white? Then denim is always an option. Kriti Sanon toned down her neon green ensemble with a denim jacket and balanced the striking colour.
