We all need a look that requires little to no effort coming up with yet brings out the stylish side of us. Whether it’s for an occasion or a simple hang out. A monochromatic outfit offers all that.

What factors do you consider while buying clothes? Are you the type that makes sure you have something to pair it with or the other type that buys as long as it pleases the eye and it fits. I’m the latter which is both good and bad. Good in the sense that I’m open to all the possible ways I can wear a particular piece, bad in that I often find myself impulse buying.

Colour of the clothe, another factor most people(if not all) consider before making a purchase. Try getting pieces of the same colour but different shades. I know how comfortable we are with darker shades,time to get out of that comfort zone. I saw a quote that read , I’ll stop wearing black when they discover a darker shade. I totally relate with that but once in a while i do like testing waters on the other side. Try it too.

What is your favorite colour? Why is it your favourite? How many shades does it have?

A monochromatic outfit is one that consists of clothes of the same colour but different shades. In my case I chose green, a colour of calmness and relaxation. It also provides a sense of vitality and renewal. I combined that with red, a colour that symbolizes passion, confidence, strength, energy, stimulation, courage and attention.

While the look can be intimidating,it is actually quite easy to pull off. Spotted recently on the Instagram feed of some of our coolest style icon, Joy Kendi.

Going all black is never a bad idea. It looks chic and sophisticated. About pairing a monochromatic outfit with other colours, in both pictures Joy Kendi decided to go for a colour pop with the shoes.Which one do you prefer? White or brown? In both instances she has the right shoes for the outfit. Let me know on the comment section below if you need pointers on the type of shoes to pair with what outfits.

If you want the monochromatic outfit to be less boring

1.Add a statement piece. It could be a watch or a necklace your pick. Accesorize hunny.

2.Mix textures. This makes the outfit authentic.

3.Stick to one pattern. This is important especially if bright colors are involved. Looking like a clown is not our target here.

4.Give the eye somewhere to rest. Keep it simple. Choose less floral and less printed pieces.

5. Combination is key. Combine a bold colour with a deep colour then neutral colour.

There you have it, a foolproof look.

My favorite colour is purple. I like it due to the psychology of it in branding. It is an intriguing colour. It is independent yet luxurious. It gives a mysterious vibe.

There are more than 200 shades of purple.
