18 Jan Turning Heads Linkup -Tonal Dressing -Take the EDS Reader’s Survey 2022
Tonal dressing is something I have admired on other ladies. I thought. Let’s do it! I wanted to work with pieces already in my closet to creat this tonal look with varying greens. What exactly is “tonal dressing”?
Tonal dressing is dressing head to toe in multiple shades of the same hue. It may be “broken up” with neutral shoes as in my case, my black booties.
My cashmere sweater is an emerald green, (Moschino) lace midi skirt a darker pine green (ZARA) and bag a lighter pine green by Rebecca Minkoff. Various shades of green that work to make this look interesting.
These are all older pieces from my closet. You can still buy the black croc booties from Dolce Vita, and at a great price!
How else does tonal dressing catch the eye? Mixing texture. I have taken a soft cashmere with fringe sweater and mixed it with lace and a quilted handbag. By mixing the textures, there will be added depth and contrast.
Vary the Hues
You don’t have to match exact shades. The idea is to vary the shades slightly, so there is more depth to the outfit. For example, with browns- chocolate, caramel, tan. Monochromatic looks are also considered tonal.
Try breaking up the look with a neutral accessory. My boots are the example. I wanted to continue the tonal look with my handbag but broke it up with the footwear. You could certainly do the opposite. If you had a pair of green boots/shoes within this tonal range, you would wear a neutral bag-
If you caught my look in Winter white, it would be one example of tonal dressing as well. READ POST HERE
