Spring Co-Ords; Here’s Voir’s Guide to Monochromatic Dressing

From Valentino’s dopamine inducing all-pink runway to the single-toned outfits of fashion forwards celebs, the past few weeks have shown us that coordination is in this spring. The monochrome trend burst onto the fashion scene in the 1920s after Chanel pioneered the revolutionary single hued ‘little black dress’. Since then the trend has evolved away from just black and white dressing as designers and influencers incorporate the trend into primary blues, pastel pinks, and recently stars like Sav Hudson even made the case for all yellow looks. So, whether your fashion ethos is simple and chic or bold and blazing, this trend can be incorporated into your wardrobe whatever your style.

While the spring/ summer shows of Courreges dedicated to one colour per look, street style influencers like Olivia and Alice show us that playing with two tantalisingly bright shades of a colour can create playful and coordinated looks that will make your wardrobe pop!

Monochromatic dressing is perfect for those of you who want to add some spring colour to your wardrobe without having to say goodbye to coordinated outfits. If your aim is to piece together an outfit that is perfectly coordinated (like Courrage’s and Valentino’s recent runway moments) aim to shop for all of your pieces from the same retailer so that you can guarantee the shades will be identical. Or if Olivia and Alice are your bright dressing fashion heroes, combine pastels and brights together in the same look. But enough from us, let’s delve into the monochromatic Instagram posts of our fashion muses to see how the single-toned trend is truly mastered.


Hot pink is having a moment and as the new face of Valentino, it only made sense that Zendaya headed to the Italian Fashion House’s show in layered flamingo pink. Dedicating entirely to the bright pink shade, the star wore a lengthy pink trench coat with knee-high boots and accessories in the courageous shades.

Megan Thee Stallion

All-denim looks are another spring-ready take on the monochrome trend that can take your wardrobe to coordinated nirvana. Showing us how the double denim look is done, Megan Thee Stallion paired a lace-up corset and jeans by FashionNova for an accessible yet modish look that’s easily recreated. Sticking to the light blue look, Megan accessorised with a pastel blue Chanel purse.

Khloe Kardashian

Also showing us that light layered denim is the current monochrome trend, Khloe Kardashian paired a denim dress with a denim trench for a nighttime take on the trend.

Olivia & Alice

As mentioned, if there is one Instagram page to seek out when looking for monochrome outfit inspiration, Olivia and Alice are just that. In this look, the sisters show us how to play with different shades of the same colour. Pairing light green trousers and dark green trenches, their looks spark an eloquent and fresh vibe, perfect for spring.

Sav Hudson

Spring has always been synonymous with fresh pastel hues, but in a twist on the trend, this season’s hottest designers like Blumarine sent monochromatic pastel outfits down the runway. Taking cues from the runway trend in her daily looks, influencer Sav Hudson’s pastel yellow look shows us how to layer light summer dresses and shades with puffers in the same hue – striking the perfect balance between the two seasons.

Lissy Roddy

While the monochrome trend is usually found in bold nighttime looks, Lissy Roddy demonstrates that casual monochrome is also attainable. Pairing a regal blue gym set with a chunky biker jacket, this look shows that whether you’re hitting the gym or chilling at home, nothing is stopping you from getting your monochrome fix every day of the week.

Winnie Harlow

Metallic monochrome makes the ultimate ‘going-out’ look, as shown by Winnie Harlow’s Vegas post last week. Wearing a metallic orange cut-out top and skirt by Revissaint, this look is for those daring to stand out from the crowd.

Kim Kardashian

Kim has long been making her case for monochrome. Whether sporting hot pink Balenciaga or pieces from her own SKIMS line, Kim knows the importance of keeping colour to a stylish minimum. This month, Kim’s hot pink Instagram post was a how-to in all things vacay monochrome wear. The star paired hot pink pants with a bandeau top and gloves in the matching shade.
