FASHION VALUE CHAIN

Here’s a trend that will suit everybody, whether experts or newbies to fashion: monochromatic outfits. First, what do we mean by monochromatic? The term can mean all one colour, varying shades of the same colour, or even a combination of colours if it’s black, white, and grey.

Some of the ombré shadings popular in prior seasons would fit the definition, though some ombrés merge two different colours and wouldn’t be considered monochromes. The single colour style can be a single piece, like a jumpsuit or full-length dress, or be an array of pieces aligned by colour.

until recent spring 2022, runways quickly reinstated monochromatic outfits as a high fashion styling trick. From Max Mara to Courrèges, Versace to Blumarine, Chloé to MSGM, the most recent runways proved that wearing a full monochromatic look strikes just the right note.

A bevy of designers all went in on monochrome, dreaming up one-hued wonders that felt fresh with unexpected silhouettes. Take MSGM’s baggy low-rise jeans paired with a cropped hoodie and blazer—all in a tennis ball neon. Or consider Chloé’s low-key knit skirt and tank paired with a same-hued marigold coat. Designers struck a perfect balance between understated silhouettes and exciting colour to make monochrome feel modern, polished, and effortless, too.
