Match anything in your life (underwear, socks, money spent vs. money earned) and you’ll instantly feel slightly more organized. That’s the real benefit of any kind of monochromatic dressing — it’s an easy way to look about 50 percent more pulled-together than you would if you were wearing the same thing in multiple colors. If you want a ripped-from-the-runway effect, pick a bright shade like red or yellow. Yellow probably has mood-lifting capabilities as well. Probably. We’re not scientists here.
But what exactly should you wear, when you’re wearing one color? It works well in a suit, or some kind of suit-adjacent ensemble, like a silky top and wide-leg pants. Throw on some differently colored accents and you’re good to go.
