STYLE GUIDE: MONOCHROME FITS

What do Darth Vader and that infamous red carpet look by Cee-Lo Green have in common? They both prove that – if done right(!) – monochromatic looks can be showstoppers. And who are we to argue about dress codes with a Sith lord?

So here’s some fresh inspiration for putting together an outfit of the same color or different shades of it (without looking like a movie villain) – including pieces from BSTN Brand, Daily Paper and Nike!


Shades of grey

When wearing monochromatic outfits, detail is key: While the grey tracksuit looks nice if worn alone already, the additional vest effortlessly elevates the look from ‘ready for the gym’ to ‘ready to style on them’. Just make sure to keep the vest in a different hue of grey to add depth.

If we’re talking grey outfits, black or a pop of color on the sneaker section can’t hurt either – and grey sneakers should be avoided if you don’t want to look like an elephant (we’re not talking elephant prints on Air Jordans though).

Black on black on black

While putting together a single-colored look is the trickiest with bold colors, the safest way to go is the classic black-on-black. And as the cold season has officially begun here in Europe, why don’t make it special with a long black puffer coat?

To match the London aesthetic of the BSTN Brand coat – because we can totally see Arsène Wenger in it – with additional street vibes and comfiness, add a black Balaclava, black track pants, black gloves and black sneakers.

All in the mix

To keep a monochrome outfit interesting, combining materials and textures is a good idea: The men’s look on the right combines a puffer jacket and track pants in just the right variation of grey to match perfectly. The fact that both are made from light weight fabrics adds to the harmony of the look.

But we don’t have to overcomplicate things: The women’s look* pictured here, consisting of the same puffer jacket but with the matching padded pants, is a perfect no-brainer. And that’s exactly what we need sometimes, especially on a busy morning when there’s absolutely no time for dozens of outfit choices. Just add a black shirt for underneath and you’re good to go!

* Good news: All pieces are unisex.
