A fall guide to styling monochromatic looks.
I used to be so afraid of monochromatic looks. I always felt like I ended up looking as if I was trying way too hard to “match,” while giving the impression that I didn’t actually know how to match clothes to create outfits. That was 2000’s, high school me. Adult me is much less afraid.
Here’s my formula for styling monochromatic outfits for fall.

Shades of cognac and warm beige.
Just because a look is “monochromatic,” it doesn’t mean everything has to be exactly the same shade. In fact, I think outfits look better when the colors don’t match exactly. My mom gets annoyed when colors are “too close, but too far,” as if you are trying to pretend that colors match, but they really don’t. I suppose I inherited that from her.
Five Shades of Gray (& Black). Nope, pun totally not intended…
Another example of different shades of the same color. I think of a monochromatic outfit as more of a style choice than a rule. There’s no rule saying that every item needs to match exactly. What is important is that all the pieces look like they belong together so your outfit has a cohesive, head-to-toe vibe.
On-trend chocolate browns.
Chocolate brown isn’t new, but this year the color is finally getting its moment in the spotlight. Since it’s such a dark color, I suggest varying the textures of the pieces in order to make the outfit look less frumpy. The leather leggings and crocodile skin print boots add shine, while the ribbed crop top adds texture and breaks up the darkness by showing some skin.
Variations of teal because I like teal and I like these boots.
Neutral matchy-matchy outfits can look super chic and streamlined, but colored outfits? Not so much. For monochromatic looks using “poppier” colors, I make sure to mix and match pieces in different shades and include multiple textures to avoid looking like a walking crayon.
Chic shades of cream & white.
You just can’t go wrong with monochromatic cream outfits. For this look, I went for a mostly preppy, “Hamptons-esque” style, but paired the feminine look with edgy canvas combat boots to bring classic style into current times.
This one is a bit of a wildcard, I know. Honestly, I’m having Disneyland withdrawals. I saw this dress and I thought of the Haunted Mansion.
