How To Choose The Right Monochrome Colours For You
When trying to work out what colour looks best on you, the most reliable way to do this is to focus on your natural complexion and your skin’s undertones. From there you’ll be able to use the colour wheel to find which colours flatter you the most, and which ones you should probably avoid. To find your undertones, take a look at the veins in your wrist and match them to the descriptions below. Then take a look at the corresponding colour matches to find out what options Milc. can provide you with as proud Bassike stockists.
Warm Undertones: If your veins show up as a green colour, then you more than likely have warm undertones. This means that yellows, golds, oranges, and rich reds will make you glow and highlight your natural beauty the most. Bassike Australia has you covered with the following options:
- Capsleeve Longerline Dress in Red Sand - This dress gives the wearer effortless and unmatched style by highlighting their natural golden features. Made from 100% organic cotton and stitched with soft bias binding around the neckline and armholes, the fabric and craftsmanship provide the wearer with an unparalleled level of comfort.
- Bassike Boxy Crew Weekend Knit in Mustard - Relish in the warmth and comfort this knit provides with its blend of cashmere and merino wool. Perhaps one of the most loved warm colours ever, this cropped mustard sweater offers a timeless way to add style and a pop of colour into your wardrobe.
Cool Undertones: If your veins appear to be mostly blue or purple, you likely have cool undertones. If that’s the case, then blues, greens, frosty purples, and berry reds are the colours you’ll steal the show in. These options from Bassike will compliment your skin beautifully:
Neutral Undertones: When your veins are a combination of blue and green, or they’re not very visible at all, then you have neutral undertones. You can wear the whole colour spectrum and stand out wonderfully. Bold, bright colours can help you stand out, while earthy tones provide a more subtle option. You can wear any of the options listed above as well as the following:
Milc. Homewares’ Top Tips For Making Monochrome Work
The main issue people run into when trying something bold like a monochrome outfit, is that the outfit ends up wearing them, rather than them wearing the outfit. In order to make sure your clothing doesn’t overwhelm you. Pick colours that work for you, choose fits that show off your figure, and remember that textures and fabric types are also important factors when building an outfit.
Picking colours that work for you will make sure that your clothing choices don’t accidentally leave you looking washed out. The colours you choose should enhance your natural beauty and leave you looking luminous. By choosing colours that complement your skin tone, hair, and eyes, you remain the star, rather than having your outfit pulling focus from your natural features. Once you’ve found a colour that you look great in, you can really start to make monochrome work for you!
Choosing a fit that shows off your figure will also help you to become the main feature of your outfit. If you have an athletic body type as opposed to an hourglass figure, you’ll want to add volume to your outfit to create a willowy look that makes you appear striking. You can add shape to these looks by wearing pants with a cinched-in waist, or by throwing a belt around your middle when wearing an oversized dress. Bassike’s Slouch Side Step Short Sleeve T/Shirt, Washed Linen Gathered Neck Dress, and Pleated Balloon Dress will help you achieve a gorgeous look.
People with hourglass figures can show off their shape with pants and skirts that accentuate their waists, boatneck and scoop neck tops, and dresses that flare out below the waist. By choosing clothes that put focus on your gorgeous curves, you can create eye-catching looks that make you look and feel Bassike’s Turnback Longline Tank Dress, Cotton Gathered Longline Skirt, and their Everyday Superfine Rib Tanks will show off your shape perfectly.
Along with considering colours and fits, it's important to remember the importance of textures and fabrics. When you mix up fabric types and add in different textures with layers and accessories, you can have an outfit that is still monochrome but doesn’t look so one-note. Create the dark look of your dreams by wearing Bassike’s Roll Neck Layering Knit in Black with their Deep V Slip Dress in Black over the top. All that’s left to do after that is to accessorise with a black bag and throw on some tights and your favourite pair of black boots. Just like that, you have a dramatic, ready-made outfit that celebrates variety while still being monochrome.
