I am back with another summer lookbook today. If you haven’t checked my previous ones, then click here and here. Well, minimal or monochrome style isn’t how I would describe my style, you know well that I like color-blocking my outfits, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate minimal dressing. So, for this summer lookbook post, I tried combining minimal monochrome.
Minimal & monochrome fashion never goes out of style. That doesn’t mean having only whites or blacks in your wardrobe is enough. I yearn to play around with colors, and you can too, with shades of colors and come up with a whole new minimal summer lookbook.
No matter the season, layering up your ensemble seems like you’ve put some thought into your outfit. The key to layering in summer is to have pieces which are easy to put on and off. Like, I have styled my white cotton tunic with a salmon pink shirt dress which can be taken off when the temperature rises and can be simply thrown off on the shoulders or tied around the waist.
When it comes to summer dressing, you need room to wiggle so that you don’t suffocate. So, loose clothing is utmost important. Hence, I chose blush pink wide-leg trousers. The sun is blazing throughout the day; therefore, I chose light pink shades for my minimal monochrome outfit.
To break the monotony, I added a black waist belt and paired it with black heels. Old habits die hard! I couldn’t go without color-blocking but staying true to the monochromatic theme.
I finished the look with a partial french braid which looks like a Mohawk and soft curls
The minimal monochrome style is not something I can accept wholeheartedly, but I am taking into consideration a few elements of it.
To get ready in this sweltering heat is a hard task. My ensemble is appropriate for business casual or an evening work event.
