GREY TONES

GREY TONES

It's safe to say grey is neutral, but when styled in a monochromatic way (varying shades, tints or tones of the same hue or color) it can make quite a statement. This look incorporates three variations of grey that when placed correctly on the body can accentuate any area. I'm wearing a t-shirt as the darkest grey in the background and a leather crop top as the lightest grey in the foreground. This creates an immediate "pop" or contrasting effect. Light attracts, dark detracts. This effect brings your focus immediately to my top line which is exactly where I want it for this look. Another key point is choosing the right silhouette or shape that will work together with the color to further enhance the look. For instance, choosing a crop top works in combined effort with the color placement (pop effect) to highlight the waist since the crop shape provides a defined waistline. Color & shape work together to accentuate the area of focus. The high waisted skirt subtly supports in medium grey as the perfect pairing, streamlining the look with a fitted waist, accentuated hips and elongated legs.  

So, when shopping for a monochromatic look remember these 3 key points:

1) Monochromatic color

2) Color placement

3) Silhouette
