Simplicity is a must for me during the holiday season, well really any season.  And what can be easier than a monochromatic outfit?  With the rush to get my work done before vacation, I have less time to focus on picking out what to wear.  This olive monochrome outfit is amazingly easy yet super stylish.  Wearing one color from head to toe is a simple way to look put together with little thought.  There are a few tips you must follow if you want to consistently create the perfect monochromatic look:

  1. Start with fitted clothing. For killer style you need clothes that flatter your body.  You won’t look put together if you rock clothes that don’t work for your body type.
  2. Don’t be afraid if you’re clothes aren’t the same shade.  If you don’t have a top or pants in the same hue never fear, wearing items of varying shades gives your outfit more depth.
  3. Have a statement piece.  To keep your outfit from looking drab rock an item that has a real wow factor to step up the look.

If you’re in a rush and wanting something easy to wear give these tips a try!  And if you’re loving this look then see how you can create a navy monochrome look and my 5 ways to wear all black!
