MONOCHROME ADDICTION

Street style bloggers, Monochrome, How to style red, How to style all red, Turban trend, Fashion bloggers in Lagos, Bloggers in Nigeria, Dior sunglasses, how to wear dior glasses, how to style wide leg pants, Through every fashion season I try to keep up with trends and once new trends come up, I ditch most old trends however there is one fashion trend I can't ever get over, its monochrome!

 Even though I love combining different patterns and colors in a single outfit, I also love the idea of styling different shades of a single color for a super cool monochrome moment.

I've realized that wearing bold colors like red makes you look super chic. There's just something about it that oozes sophistication, don't you think?

For me the best colours to monochrome with are Grey, white, and pastels (Yellow and green just seem too much for me)
To recreate a similar look, you can play with different prints with your accessories; purse or shoes. You can never go wrong with a little black and white purse or leopard print shoes. I'm currently basking in this Lagos heat and any outfit that guarantees I tie up my hair is the winner, hence the turban. Altogether I think it's nicely put together.

Here are some tips you should definitely keep in mind:
-Soft on top, bold below: Go for a lighter shade for your top and the shade for your bottoms should be darker. 
-Blend different textures like I did with the light chiffon top and thick cotton pants. 
-Be careful to make sure that your shades/hues are complimenting and not clashing (Oxford red + Burgundy = Disaster!)
- Cheat code: Neutral. For an easy pass monochrome with nude tones such as blush and beige they are almost interchangeable!

  11. Girl this outfit is so nicely put together. I love the little details in your collar line and shoes. I'd add blue and mustard as great colours to rock the monochrome trend with. Btw I love the constant street style vibes in your shoots, it really adds that uniqueness.
