Monochrome‘ brings to mind black and white. However, this term refers to any balance of two tones or two colours throughout an outfit creating a well-curated look. Infamous street ‘stylists’, as I like to refer to them, have recreated tonal dressing in the hope of redefining the term monochrome. Even though some might think this trend is boring or restricting, the new wave of bright monochromes is in fact liberating and a good fashion challenge. We have compiled our top three bright monochromes that everyone should try this transitional season:


Yellow and beige

This mixture of calm tones would work for all seasons and is easy to pull off. The advantage of a yellow-and-beige combination is that it looks very fashion-forward within any style aesthetic. As seen below, introducing one item in a certain colour will allow you to accessorise with a paired colour of your choice.

Pale blue and red

This cloud combination is bright yet cooling. Red accents give the look a bold statement that can make you come across as a fashion guru. However, if you feel blue is way too calm for you, swapping the blue suit for a red one will definitely make an impression.

As bright as it may appear, this colour combination looks incredible on all skin tones. Don’t feel intimidated – bright pinks and oranges are perfect for winter and spring.
