Wearing one colour from head-to-toe is anything but boring! Even though one-tone dressing is a simpler and cleaner way to put together an outfit, doesn't mean it lacks personality. Monotone is a great option to elongate your frame for a slimmer and taller look. Fortunately, it is also one of the biggest trends this season for Indian wear. Delicate monotones in rose, pista green, mint, mauve and powder blue have become the poster children for summer weddings this season.
Emboldened by beloved Indian wear designers of the fashion industry, the monotone is shaping up to be the go-to summer wedding look for 2018. Designers such as Neeta Lulla, Shyamal & Bhumika and many others have dedicated entire collections to this look:
Although monotone is a relatively simple look to pull, there are some a few ways to land it right. There are some key pointers you need to check off on your monotone checklist, from bright summery colours to improvised styles, these are the ways to wear the trend this summer!
1. The Blush Tones
Sombre and sorbet colours are a good way to be cool for the summer wedding. Spring pastels being a top trend is an added advantage to a stylish shaadi guest. You can opt for ensembles in light colours like candy pink, lime yellow, salmon, icy blue and mint green, especially for morning and afternoon soirees.
What’s a desi bride if not in bright! For the woman of the hour, nothing short of an eye-catching will cut it and a bright monotone lehenga can be the right option for it. Colours like sunshine yellow, fruity mauve and sultry fuschia, interpreted and played with to create lehenga sets can be an alternative to otherwise traditionally heavy ensembles.
While decking up in monotone gives you an edge of sophistication, sometimes it can be interpreted as plain and bland. Look for details in your outfit, like sheer overlays, tassel hems or fringed sleeves to leave no room for complaint with your choice of wedding attire.
Accessorising a monotone look is key to keeping with the overall look of the trend. Mix and match your accessories to align with the dominant tone of your ensemble or pick pieces which at least match the little details like embroidery, print or lining of the outfit.
Monotone ensembles are really easy to improvise with, you don’t have to worry about clashing details with it. Round up your ethnic separates and create an ensemble that plays with the intensity of one particular tone. You can even add contemporary touches to it since a monotone ensemble is capable to pull of modern features fabulously.
For a monotone look that’s just right, opt for designs with minimal embroidery. You can even scour the market for sarees and lehengas that have self-coloured embroidery on them. This won’t distract your true intent of wearing one colour from head to toe.
