Although I used to be a keen lover of print and colour combining back in the days, I tend to choose for more monochrome options nowadays. One of my latest obsessions is the concept of ton-sur-ton: you just dress up in 1 colour only. Not only does this trend make you seem a lot taller and thinner, it also gives an instant chic touch to your appearance!
Ton-sur-ton for beginners like myself restricts itself to basic colours like black, grey and navy. I particularly love the latter for this uniform dressing, as navy is less harsh and more chic than black. Here’s three tips on how I wear my ton-sur-ton:
- Replace your monochrome shoes by printed ones for an eye-catching effect.
- Mix up several textures and volumes to keep your silhouette interesting.
- Keep your accessories and jewellery simple and dainty.
Are you an expert in monochrome dressing? Or do you prefer a few hints of colour?
