GET THE LOOK: MONOCHROMATIC

I’m really loving all of the monochromatic looks I’ve been seeing lately. I’m used to seeing the classic white-on-white look (one of my favorites), but recently there’s been a lot of tonal ensembles in other colors. Getting this look right really comes down to one thing: pairing different shades of the same color together. Wearing the same shade of one color from head-to-toe just doesn’t work (I even think an all black look could use a hint of gray somewhere). If you’re not quite ready to do the full-blown monochromatic look then add in subtle accents colors with your accessories.I think Eva Longoria got the look just right! Tan is such a flattering color on her, and she mixed the different tones of brown together perfectly. What do you think?
