How to Do Head-to-Toe Monochrome Dressing

Turn heads with a single color.

Sporting a full-on one-color look is probably one of the boldest trends this season. Whether it's on the runways of New York, Paris, London, or Milan, monochrome makes an eye-catching statement. Fashion's favorite street-style stars seem to be hopping on the runway trend, too, proving that it's just as wearable off the catwalk.

But if you're unsure which hue to choose from the vast spectrum of colors, or how exactly to layer and mix and match pieces, the key is to pick the right shade that'll suit you best. Here are some foolproof choices that will help you nail that monochromatic ensemble.

1. Millennial Pink

The trick to pulling off a millennial pink look, a.k.a. the color of the moment, is to stick consistently to one shade. Going a touch warmer or cooler with one of the pieces will really affect the overall outfit. Also, donning the shade in a more oversized, ovoid, or cozy silhouette makes the look more modern and grown-up rather than princess-y.

2. Forest Green

A universally flattering shade of green no matter your skin tone, forest green is a very elegant color. Opt to wear it for a night out as a simple cocktail dress with matching stiletto heels, and throw on a coat if it's a little chilly. Forest green also works well with a dark smokey eye or a bold red lip as a beautiful contrast. And if you're iffy about bringing a small clutch, Lipault offers a classic bucket bag in this shade that's perfect for going day to night.

3. Ruby Red

You can wear red during the day—no grand occasion required. The color is experiencing a great comeback on the runways in recent seasons, and it's a great statement look. Wear in elongating silhouettes like straight-cut trousers, a tracksuit, or a sleeved midi dress to maximize the dramatic effect of the color. Finish off the look with a patent Lipault saddle bag and a bold red lip for that extra pop of crimson.

4. Teal

Teal is the jewel tone that's instantly classic. Be warned, though: The wrong choice of silhouette can make it look dated. Opt for a sweater matched with an A-line skirt to exude '60s preppy flair. Teal is also a great pick-me-up to break your normal office blacks and grays. A Lipault tote or handle bag in this hue is your perfect accessory for carrying all your work essentials, too.

5. Plum

This rich, deep color looks best as a svelte outfit. Whether you choose a delicate slip dress or a bodycon midi with matching sock boots, plum is a very slimming shade. It's also a great option for travel, since it's just as versatile as black. Luckily, Lipault has a luggage that matches this shade. See, you can still fly in style.

6. Navy

A head-to-toe navy suit looks crisp and clean, and is every bit of a #girlboss outfit. Tie your hair back in a sleek low bun, or wear it loose with a no-fuss middle part to show that you really mean business. Lipault's Lady Plume Weekend bag is the accessory of choice for this ensemble, thanks to its timeless shape and design. It's also versatile enough to tag along on your well-deserved break or getaway.

7. Black

Black-winged liner, cigarette pants, patent pointed heels—these will never go out of style.
