Lenskart’s “IT” Colors for Monotone Outfits
We live in an era where fashion doesn’t really have an in or an out style anymore. You could never go wrong really. One person’s mismatched outfit could well be the other’s ramp-scorcher, and there really is no right or wrong. At the end of the day, what you think looks best on you and what you feel is most comfortable are what really matter.
There was a time when bell-bottom jeans were so in that if you wore a pair of skinny jeans, you’re considered a fashion piranha. Those were the times when you just had to stick with the trend and tread lightly because stepping out of the well-constructed line could as well have been a major fashion faux pas. And everyone wanted to part of the in-crowd back then.
But, that was then. Generation Z is now bold and strong. People don’t want to be mere sheep following the herd anymore. Originality and individuality are now what fashion is all about. The gentle world of fashion has become bolder, more vivacious and fiercer. And, we couldn’t love it more! Our outfits have given us the chance to show who we are inside and out. They have become a means of communication.
There are just so many styles of fashion out there today. We’ve got styles such as rocker chick, gothic, hip hop, kawaii, preppy, casual chic, girl-next-door, geeky, retro, garconne, flamboyant, grunge, pink, bohemian chic, business casuals, formals – the list just goes on and on.
Remember the times when the monotone style was considered boring? What do we say to that now? “Not today!” (In Arya Stark’s voice and accent). In a world where ‘matching’ has become so important, the monotone style has become the crème de la crème of the fashion world. From Kim Kardashian’s classic nude monotone outfits to Victoria Beckham’s elegant monotone suits, it’s safe to say that the style is not going away anytime soon.
So, Pantone has announced “Living Coral” as the color of 2019. We absolutely love the coral and are sure the color will dominate the world of fashion. But in the meantime, we thought we’d give you guys some of the colors that we believe are notable this year.
So, without further ado, we give you the six colors that we believe would be the best this year for a daring monotone look.
Yellow really did well for itself this year. Beating all the other colors, it is the trendiest color of Spring 2019. And who doesn’t love this vibrant color? Standing for freshness, happiness, positivity, clarity, energy, optimism, enlightenment, remembrance, intellect, honor, loyalty, and joy, there is no other color that’s better suited to kick off this summer than yellow. Wouldn’t you agree?
This feminine color is an obsession for so many celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Jeffrey Star and Pink (duh!), and hey, even Steven Tyler wrote a song about it. So, you can only imagine why this is a must-try color of 2019. A mixture of red and white, pink is the color for universal love of oneself and others. Inner peace and harmony are what this color represents. Are you in need of a little pink today?
Remember the English boy band “Blue”? Well, this isn’t about them. The color blue is a symbol of elegance in the world of fashion. American footballer, Antonio Brown said, “Blue is the color of peace. Water is blue. I like the color blue because it just puts me at peace. The patriotic symbol is blue. I just like blue.” We couldn’t agree with him more. We hope you do too.
We think orange, we see autumn leaves, Halloween pumpkin and the fruit, of course. Although, many may argue that the color is so ‘last year’ as Tangerine Tango was Pantone’s Color of the Year back in 2011. But, what can we say? We believe in comebacks and we have a feeling that this earthy color will have its moment in the fashion world soon.
The beginning of 2019 saw a lot of neon green. From Kylie Jenner to Blake Lively to Kim Kardashian, green was unstoppable; it still is. To this day, celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Nicky Minaj are sporting green outfits. Our love for life and the environment just couldn’t let us skip this color. Plus, we are sure you’d rock any outfit as long as it is in this tone.
Let’s round it up with this powerful color, shall we? Ah, red! What more can be said about this sensual color when artists have written poems, songs and books about it? It’s the ultimate color that’s got good and evil in itself. Representing passion, love and desire while at the same time associating itself with war and power, it is the color that’s got us all hooked. Go on and do your worst, you’d still look good in it.
Ciao for now!
A firm believer in the power of pink living somewhere between reality and fantasy.
