Monochromatic look: Check!





There's something so special of a monochromatic look. Maybe it's the posibility of turning a simple color scheme into something outré by mixing it just the right way, or the complexity of said word... but ever since we've been seeing the trend around, I have been fascinated... and still working hard on pronouncing the word correctly. Of course, adding a pop of bright colors and neons is also a sight worth seeing, but I believe that the ability to make something simple into something fashionable is what every style aficionado should aim for. The trick with a monochromatic outfit is in the details. Whether you decide to mix the textures, add an outstanding print, wear an eye-catching piece of jewelry... always have in mind that somehow something needs to be 'different.' If not, people will always find some sort of fruit, vegetable or cartoon to compare you to. You don't want to look like one of the smurfs so aim to find something in the outfit selection that removes the image from people's minds. And hey, if you do end up looking like a smurf, or a carrot, or even a tree log, embrace it, at least all eyes are on you!

  52. love the double cuff trends u are sporting here

    by the way can u do me an immense favor? i have the chance to collaborate with boticca.com a jewellery brand but to do that i need to send them traffic by my blog, and this can happen only if people click on the boticca.com link i provide in my newest post, just click nothing more. it would mean the world to me if you just clicked on the link, it would be so helpful since i don't have hundreds of fans to help me out.
