Could you also clarify monochrome? I know it’s technically different shades of the one colour but so many magazines and websites are calling black and white together monochrome, so I’m wondering how it works with two neutrals together.
- Mono = One
- Chromatic = Colour
So is just means One Colour it could be all blue (or shades of blue) all green (or shades of green) or even all shades of brown. That is the technical meaning of monochromatic. Many people think it means exactly the same colour head to toe, it can be, but it doesn’t have to be.
You can choose a dark version of a colour and that can act as your neutral, and then team some lighter versions of that colour for interest.
Navy, deep burgundy, deep forest green and brown can work as neutrals to hold your outfit together.
