They look stylish and put together in every hue and personally, I favor wearing different tones of my favorite color pink 😉 Read on for a closer look at this pink monochrome outfit!
Pink Monochrome Outfit for Valentine’s Day
Tips for Styling a Pink Monochrome Outfit
I’m no stranger to monochrome outfits (see more examples here, here, here, here, and here) and I have a sweet spot specifically for pink monochrome outfits. I think that blush is practically a neutral at this point and it looks so gorgeous styled head to toe. Neutral outfits always look incredible but there’s something so fun and fresh about wearing color! When styling monochrome outfits, it’s important to keep a few things in mind:
Use Different Tones of the Same Color
For my outfit, the blush tones are nearly identical which can work well but I think that using different tones helps break up the outfit and give it more dimensions. For example, when I style blush, I usually pair it with some variation of mauve. They are in the same color family and about the same intensity of color. Personally, I think monochrome looks work best with lighter tones, pastels, darker tones (like mauve) and jewel tones. Of course, you can incorporate brights but it’s bit more advanced. If you’re just starting out, I’d recommend sticking to the lighter or darker end of the spectrum for any color and mix and match as necessary.
Use Different Textures
When wearing the same color head to toe, it’s important to include a variety of textures. Different tones can definitely help with the variety in a monochrome outfit but textures are also key, especially if you’re wearing the same hue head to toe like myself. In my outfit, I’m wearing a chiffon style top with a faux leather pleated skirt topped with a wool coat. My shoes are also a faux patent material and my look incorporates other interesting details like bows and pearls. Even though it’s all the same color, it still works well together and look interesting with the varying textures.
Start with Neutrals
If you’re a newbie to styling monochrome looks, I recommend starting off with neutrals like black or white. With black, it’s very important to utilize different textures and fabrics since it can just end up blending together. For fall and winter, I love wearing lace, knits, tweed, velvet, heavier chiffon, faux fur, leather/vegan leather and wool blends. White is more versatile and one of my favorites for monochrome looks! With white, you can not only combine different textures but you can combine different variations of the hue – white, cream, ivory and even tan or camel. You honestly can’t go wrong here!
