A Nude Take On Monochrome Fashion

When I rocked up to Ramside Hall this past weekend, I felt every inch the long lost plus size Kardashian in my monochrome outfit.

I always used to think wearing monochrome meant black and white but it’s actually when you combine different textures of one colour together, which I’ve done countless times before with an all black everythang outfit or when you’re wearing similar shades together, just like the difference nude tones that I’m wearing in this outfit.

Tonal looks are absolutely beautiful and I’ve drawn so much inspiration from babes that I see killin’ it everyday from Kim K to youtubers like Lydia Millen.  Its a timeless style that suits EVERYONE and makes dressing from your wardrobe stylishly, so easy!  If I were to ever create my own clothing line from scratch, I think I’d definitely include a lot of tonal pieces that could be put together to create monochrome looks.  Starting up my own fashion line would be very hard though without a lot of financial backing and there’d be so many questions to ask from what are the logistics, to how do I get the fit right and what’s the cost of starting a clothing line?  Maybe one day girls!

To create my own multi-tonal look, I took the Pink Clove Plus Daphne Stone PVC Mini Skirt and tucked my MAT tunic neckline top into it, pulling it out quite a lot for more of a relaxed style.  Don’t let the fact that this is listed as PVC put you off, it doesn’t feel like that at all.  It’s a stretchy coated material but not plastic like PVC would suggest.  I have a similar skirt in Khaki that I wore in my blog post all about fashion that can take you from the office to a wine bar.  This stone beauty fits true to size and is so comfortable to wear.

The MAT tunic is an absolutely beauty and such high quality.  It’s an item that you can wear with so many different pieces in your wardrobe and although a little see-through, it always looks effortlessly chic.

For shoes, I’ve added the stone colour Hotter wedges that I first featured ages ago in this blog post and I’ve worn them so frequently ever since.  They’re so comfortable and I can walk for ages in them but most of all, I love how sturdy they feel under my feet.

To pull the whole look together, I added the Pink Clove Plus Cleo Longline Long Sleeve Ribbed Nude Cardigan.  This piece feels so effortlessly glam, especially in the way that it swishes as you walk!  I’ve worn it a few times now and have found that it looks great with a skirt like this, tailored shorts or even mid blue denim jeans.  I’m so tempted to see if they have more colours… *must resist!*

I love the outfit that I’ve put together and will definitely be making outfits with similar tones in the future.  It looks absolutely beautiful and is exactly my style.

Monochromatic, tonal dressing looks gorgeous on everyone so get amongst it my plus size beauties!

    You look great. I didn’t realise monochrome wasn’t just black and white myself until quite recently.

    Love how you are rocking this outfit, I honestly thought monochrome was black and white only. Thanks for this lesson.

    I had no idea monochrome wasn’t just black and white! You look fabulous, I’m not sure I could pull of those colours, I always go for blues but I love the idea of trying!

    You look absolutely amazing! That nude cardigan is lovely, I love the length and the colour.

    The first sentence made me totally laugh out loud. Nude does look quite classy honestly and I am tired of wearing black. It does take some skill to come up with an outfit without black – love yours!

    I had a friend who designed PVC clothing and I was always surprised at how wearable a lot of it looked. Love these colours on you! 🙂

    I had no idea that’s what monochrome meant either! I think you look amazing and the outfit works really well together. I absolutely love your long cardigan and may have to invest in one for myself as it looks so great as well as looking comfy too!

    I love nude clothing but with a 4 year old they don’t tend to stay clean long
