Monochromatic dressing (that is, one colour from head to toe) is a huge trend for Spring 2013.  I am particularly fond of this trend because it’s really easy to pull a look together, and I always feel a little extra stylish when wearing one single colour (see my past cobalt blue outfit here).  I’m thrilled to be partnering with 3 fabulous ladies to show you how each of us has taken the runway trend and worn it in real life.

 

Amy from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins is lovely in white, Sara from Glitter and Grace is chic in black, and Star from Beauty and Bows is pretty in pink.  I felt fresh and ready for Spring in my full-on mint look.  Will you be sporting the monochromatic trend this season?

    Oh my gosh, Jenny, you look amazing! I Love this SO much – you are completely rocking the monochromatic look, and I love that you chose mint! I need that jacket in my life, and the little coach clutch is just too cute! Pinning this immediately..! 🙂

    I love this, Jenny! I’m not good at monochromatic dressing. I always think I’m going to do it, and then I switch something out for a different color. I guess it just doesn’t feel like me (but I love it on you).

      Thanks Sarah! I think sometimes monochromatic dressing can be a little intimidating for some, but to me, it’s pretty easy. I understand what you mean though. . . it’s not a look that everyone might feel comfortable in.

    This is so bold and pretty! It reminds me of the Ladies Who Lunch, but in a young, fresh way. Very Chanel-esque!

    Mint is not a color I would have chosen for a monochromatic look but it’s looks awesome on you! I love the jacket tough in a girly color gives the outfit a little of an edge with the moto cut. I have not worn a monochromatic look yet but will be trying soon.

    Gorgeous! This is such a beautiful color on you. I’ve definitely been doing more matchy colors this spring – I usually like to wear all different colors but I’ve been matching my shoes to my top and my necklace, for instance. It’s fun to play around with trends!

    • Jenny
      May 8, 2013

      Thanks Catherine! I completely agree, it’s fun to dress in matchy matchy looks! 🙂

    Holy Moly look at you Jenny. Rocking the monochromatic look like no ohter. I love mint especially how you played with a very feminine dress against a more edgy jacket. I thinks thats the key having different textures when going monochromatic 🙂

    Thank you for this post! I remember at the beginning of the year when all the big fashion houses were doing what they called “monochrome” which apparently was black and white. And I thought to myself, monochrome definitely does not mean black and white. Get your shit together fashion industry. All these looks are lovely! And are actually monochrome haha.
