In a world where fashion trends are constantly changing, there is one style choice trending right now that still remains timeless and effortlessly chic: the monochromatic outfit. Do you love it as much as I do? In case monochromatic outfit ideas haven't been blowing up your Pinterest feed the same way they have mine, this "trend" basically involves wearing clothing pieces of the same colour (or shades) of the same colour from head to toe. Not only does this minimalist approach create an instant polished look, but it also offers a few other benefits that every woman should consider when putting together their wardrobe. That's what we are going to talk about today!
Before we dive in though, have we met yet? Here at Betty x Bow, we believe that shopping intentionally and investing in high-quality, sustainably made clothes should never come at the cost of not looking (and feeling) fabulous. We are committed to making pieces that last - not just in terms of their longevity but also in terms of their timelessness. Each item is carefully designed with attention to detail so that it's wearable for years to come. We believe in creating outfits you can feel good about wearing, both aesthetically and ethically. Our pieces are designed to make you look and feel your best, so they're always the first thing you reach for in your closet. Head here to see a few of our most popular pieces!
1. Makes Getting Ready Easier
One of the biggest advantages of embracing the monochromatic outfit trend is the simplicity it brings to your daily routine. Think about those mornings when you're in a rush and have little time to stare at your closet wondering what to wear. With a closet filled with versatile pieces of the same colour palette, choosing an outfit becomes a breeze. No more wasting precious time trying to match different colours or patterns. By opting for a monochromatic ensemble, you'll be able to effortlessly put together a stylish outfit in seconds. Something we all need a little more of, right?
2. Makes Your Pieces Feel More Timeless and Last Longer
This is one of the main benefits for us! Investing in high-quality neutrals for your monochromatic outfits guarantees that your wardrobe basics will stand the test of time. By focusing on timeless colours like black, white, or other muted tones, you create a wardrobe foundation that can be mixed and matched endlessly. These classic pieces not only remain in style throughout the years but also offer versatility, allowing you to create various looks by simply changing accessories or outerwear. This means you'll get more mileage out of your investment, reducing the need to constantly update your wardrobe.
3. Invest in High-Quality Neutrals = Spend Less Money Overall
Contrary to popular belief, following the monochromatic outfit trend doesn't necessarily mean breaking the bank. In fact, by investing in high-quality neutrals, you can ultimately save money in the long run. Rather than buying multiple pieces in different colours, or buying that $5 shirt you know will only last two washes, focus on selecting a few neutral-toned items that can be mixed and matched effortlessly. These versatile neutrals will become the backbone of your wardrobe, allowing you to create a multitude of outfits without constantly purchasing new clothing. Our classics collection is a great place to start!

Ask a Fashion Designer About the Monochromatic Outfit Trend
Can I still show my personal style while following the monochromatic outfit trend?
Absolutely! The beauty of the monochromatic outfit trend lies in its versatility. While sticking to a single colour palette, you can still experiment with different textures, silhouettes, and accessories to showcase your unique personal style.
Which colours work best for a monochromatic outfit?
Classic neutrals like black, white, and navy are excellent choices for creating a monochromatic look. However, don't shy away from experimenting with other shades as well! I created the Molly blouse and shorts in soft pink hues so that they could be paired together for a feminine monochromatic outfit option, but because of the muted tone they will still match anything else you have in your closet when worn separately.
How can I make a monochromatic outfit more interesting?
To add visual interest to your monochromatic outfit, play with different fabric textures, layering, and accessorizing. For example, a sleek black bodysuit pairs well with our straight leg kit pant. Incorporate statement jewelry, scarves, or belts to break up the monotony and add depth to your look. Don't be afraid to mix different shades within your chosen colour palette to create dimension and intrigue as well!
