7 Ways To Combat Monochrome Madness : Plusify Plus Size Fashion
Hey everyone, how is everyone doing? Staying strong in the fashion mad dash? I’m going to touch upon quite a common problem which plagues us plus size women. We tend to gravitate towards darker colours and black is usually our ultimate go-to colour. It is the easiest colour to mix, match and style. So ladies, the topic for today is about making the most of two colours in particular. Yes, black and white. No fifty shades of grey in sight. Back to basics. Pure black and pure white.
I have made my way around the world wide web and managed to hunt down a few tips on how to combat monochrome madness. Using black and white can be tricky and the misuse of it could end up major fashion faux pars.

Below are 7 pretty awesome tips I’ve managed to put together:
1) It’s all about the base (heels!)
Spice up your look with super chic black heels. It can do wonders to your outfit of the day! It automatically elevates ANY outfit, from casual to formal. Get creative. Try out kitten heels, high wedges or even oxford boots! Not only do you get a confidence boost but also some additional height to balance out body proportions and create a better silhouette. Win-win!
2) Pucker and powder up
The use of black and white in your outfit can make you look slightly pale and dull. Brighten up your monochrome look with some fun use of makeup. Try using some lipstick, accentuate your eyebrows and add a little red to your cheeks to bring life to your monochrome look.
3) Don’t shy away from the maxi dress!
You’d be surprised how going long can make a difference. Try a long dress or maxi dress to achieve a more classy and elegant feel.
4) Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise.
Have fun and mix and match accessories with your monochrome look. Try play around with handbag and necklace combinations to achieve the look that you want.
5) Get flashy!
Feeling a little too understated? Is your outfit more on the basic side?Use vibrant statement necklaces and other striking accessories to add a lil’ added va-va-voom to monochrome look.
6) No accessories?
No problem! Pick a monochrome outfit with sharper prints and bright, contrasting colours.
7) Going “grunge”?
No way, Jose! Your look would look way more presentable with clean, neat lines.
