Striking and Sophisticated: Tonal Layering
Create bold and rich outfits through tonal layering (or monochromatic dressing). Tonal layering uses shades of the same colour throughout an outfit. For example, you can wear a light blue dress shirt, a navy blue suit, and a navy grenadine tie. Light and dark shades of brown work great too.
For a casual monochromatic layered look, wear a blue Oxford shirt with a French blue sweater, dark wash jeans, and a navy blazer. The mix of dark and light tones of the same hue creates a subtle but pleasing look greater than the sum of its parts. It's as striking as it is sophisticated and a simple way to add polish to your everyday attire.
We layer our clothes unconsciously almost every day. Imagine putting a little thought into it and the refined outfits you can create. It only requires a few key decisions we talked about to add polish to your everyday style.
