To be precise, monotone ensembles are a styling trick used to achieve a more polished, and grown-up, look. Monotone ensembles also give the illusion that you're taller and slimmer, since it's one long silhouette from head to toe.
A 2018 update that celebs have been adopting is inlcuding their accessories as part of the monotone. The most recent induction into the monotone hall of fame is Dia Mirza, who basically looked like a goddess in this fabulous gown:
POPxo Recommends: STEVE MADDEN Chunky Heeled Sandals with Ankle Strap (Rs 7,999)
From the gown to the accessories, right down till the shoes, Mirza looks like a slender maiden dipped in liquid silver.
POPxo Recommends: Silver Chandelier Earrings (Rs 715)
And our love for this ensemble deepened when we found out that the dress is a sustainable fashion initiative by designer Amit Aggarwal:
