The Green Factor

    |



It's Friday Ya'll! Time for a Style Me Friday inspiration. This week is focused on the monochromatic trend. You know, when you wear all one color from head to toe. Each item doesn't have to be the exact shade of the color. I actually think that's what helps to NOT make you look like a piece of fruit or something ridiculous. I knew this week's inspiration would be a challenge especially since you couldn't wear all white or black. Plus I don't have that many colored pieces of clothing. Eboni made it a little bit easier by allowing us to apply the trend on the top half versus full body. Of course, it wouldn't really be a challenge if I choose to style it that way. I tried purple and of course it made me think of Barney. Not good. A lighter purple top like a lavender would have worked better. The brown was decent but I didn't think it was colorful enough. It was like looking at a chocolate candy bar with hair. No way! Mel said the peach/orange made her think of "Orange you glad I didn't say banana". I thought I looked like a orange sherbet popsicle. Or maybe I was getting hungry. I have a few green/mint pieces and all I could think of was that I might look like the world's tallest leprechaun. Fortunately, I didn't and the all green outfit was both our favorite. I added green and gold accessories and threw on my white glasses. If you're thinking about trying this trend, go for different shades of the same color.  It flows better.














What do you think about this trend? Which colors would you try it with?

  11. I definitely agree that using shades of the same color look good. I also am loving mint green lately and pairing it with gold accents was a nice touch. If I did this maybe I would go with a blush color and a dark pink or green like you did. :)
