What is tone on tone?
So first of all, some intro about tone on tone for those who are listening about it for the first time or who is confused, what tone-one -tone is?
Tone on tone is styling your whole outfit in different or single tone of only one colour, you can use different shades of that specific colour but you can't change the colour of your any outfit stuff other than that specific colour. We can also call it tonal dressing.
How to pull off the tone on tone outfit style, men -
After having some knowledge about what tone on tone dressing is, now let's move to the next stage which is how to style tone on tone outfit without looking weird.
So, there are some rules or steps that can help you out for doing so, let's see what they are-
1. Choosing Colour
If you have made up your mind to style your outfit in tone on tone style then the first and foremost thing you have to do is choosing a colour.
What is that specific colour in which you are going to wear your whole outfit? It is a very crucial step, you should think twice for it.
In this step women are free a bit because they can style any colour but being men we all rely on only some colours, we feel confident only in those colours.
It's Ok you don't need to go beyond that colour if you are feeling confident in those colours then pick a colour from it you don't need to choose those colour which you can't carry and in which you'll look weird.
Go for colours like; black, brown, cream, white, maroon etc. A simple hack for those who are beginners, they should go for light colours for styling tone on tone.
2. Using Shades of your colour-
Next thing, you can play with the shades of your main colour for making your outfit simple yet creative.
Like if you have chosen black although all-black outfit will amazing but you can add some other shades of black colour(like; dark grey), too.
Using shades of the main colour is essential when your main colour is some odd colour like; burgundy. Adding shades of the main colour will make your outfit not look weird.
If you add upper-body wear in a dark shade and lower body wear in a light shade of that main colour then it will look effortless outfit, rather if you wear both of your upper wear(eg; shirts) and lower wear (eg; pants) in the same shade of the same colour then it will gonna look like that you spent your all day and put all your effort just for matching them.
3. Using Patterned outfit stuff-
Next thing, using patterns in your tone on tone outfit. it is an optional step but it could be a helpful step, too. How? let me tell you-
The best thing about using patterned stuff in your outfit is, it can add other one or two colours in their pattern too, just the base colour of that pattern should match with your main colour or their shade.
Like; if you are wearing a tone on tone outfit in which you are adding layers (jacket and t-shirts) then you can wear a t-shirt with pattern in which other colours can also go with your main colour.
Still, your outfit will be called a tone-on-tone outfit, you can call it as an exception of this style but you can use it as a hack.
If you are wearing any colour which colour accessories or shoes you don't have then You can use this hack to wear accessories or shoes in different colours beyond that main colour. How!! You will get to know about it below...
So, What type of accessories we should go for with our tone on tone outfit? Is it should also match with that main colour? ...questions like this?
The answer to these questions is simple but not much. See guys, if your main colour something in which those accessories will look natural then you can add it in the same colour but if it is not then forget about it.
Let me explain by example; suppose you have decided to wear your whole outfit in black colour then you can add a watch or belt with black colour too because watches and belts in brown & black colour are going to look natural.
But, if your main colour is cream then you can add a watch in a cream colour but you can't wear a belt which is in a cream colour because it is gonna look weird.
I hope you have got it, what I'm trying to say.
If you don't have same colour accessory then, You can go for other colour accessories by using a pattern item in your outfit just that colour should present in that patterned item, which colour accessory colour you wanted to wear apart from the main colour.
See below image for more clearance-
In the upper image he matched his shades (which is not matching with main colour of his outfit) by using patterned outfit stuff (which is his t-shirt).
Shoes are a very essential part of any outfit. If you ignore it, it can ruin your whole outfit no matter how much effort you put for making that outfit, if your shoes are not according to that outfit then your whole outfit is scruff.
Same goes in Tone-on-Tone outfits too, shoes matter most for making your Tone-on-Tone look perfect on you.
- Always go for mono/single colour shoes.
- If it is possible try to match it with your main colour shades.
- If it's not then keep it natural (colourwise) like; black, brown or white.
- Don't wear too contrasting shoe than your outfit's colour.
- You can use other colour shoes by using a pattern item in your outfit just that colour should present in that patterned item, which colour shoes you wanted to wear apart from the main colour.
