Monochromatic dressing is the best way to create a slimming effect. Apparently, people have caught on to this as I have been seeing this monochromatic trend everywhere for spring and even fall 2013.
The easiest way to wear the trend is to wear all black or all white, but who wants easy! All white to me is awesome, but why not try all green or all red like I did last year. Emerald green is the Pantone’s color of the year so you will be looking thin and be completely on trend with a monochromatic green outfit.
The colors don’t need to be exactly the same shade for a great monochromatic outfit. In fact, I prefer when the colors are not the same shade.
I chose to dress Andrea in green skinny jeans from JCP (similar here from JCP as well), a cable knit top from the Gap, a peek a boo green bag from Bealls (similar transparent bag from Furla here), and brown sandals. I probably would have paired it with green flat sandals if I had a pair that fit Andrea.
