Dressing head to toe in a single color may sound daunting, but it is one of the easiest ways to elevate your look. Whether in a bold red or a subdued yellow, a monochrome outfit takes the guesswork out of getting dressed. With this strategy, pulling together an outfit has never been easier because you won’t have to worry if two pieces coordinate.
A few tips to keep in mind: You don’t necessarily need to have pieces in the exact same shade to make this look work. And if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, try adding a contrasting pop of color in your shoes or accessories.
