There is a preconceived notion going around that in order to create a striking outfit, you need to have a lot going on in your look, but we are here to tell you exactly the opposite. For whatever reason, our brains naturally tell us to avoid pairing pieces together of the same color—that a monochromatic palette is somehow uninteresting. However, there are a handful of bloggers who are making a case for exactly the opposite.
This season, bloggers have been building their outfits around one shade at a time, resulting in some of the most eye-catching ensembles we have seen in a while. From blush to green to black to denim on denim, these striking monochromatic looks have us convinced you can make a bold statement without bringing too many colors into the mix. Hopefully they'll convince you too.
