Monochromatic prints are a huge trend invading fashion blogs, celebrity wardrobes and other fashion spheres, and still popular among everyday women. Purchasing matching top-and-bottom separates in an array of prints and colors makes dressing for work, business lunches and other outings simpler, and it also adds instant flavor to otherwise boring wardrobes.
As we transition to spring, monochromatic prints can be a diverse go-to staple. Most of these pieces are separate, so mixed-print lovers can swap tops with bottoms to create new fabulous ensembles. Monochromatic prints can adorn diverse bodies, including curvier frames. As a recent convert to the monochromatic prints trends, I love the way cropped monochrome tops and pencil skirts highlight my attributes while camouflaging my flaws.
So, in the spirit of warmer weather, we’ve compiled three ways to rock monochrome prints, courtesy of Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific, Marie Denee of the Curvy Fashionista and Jillian of Nu Sophisticate.

Stripes are one of the easiest ways to incorporate monochromatic prints into a spring wardrobe, as Blair Eadie is serving us here. Atlantic-Pacific’s leading lady keeps it slinky and chic in white-and-black striped separates with strappy black stilettos and a quilted black shoulder bag. Her red lip and matching red nails add an important pop of color, and she’s unbothered behind elegant sunglasses. Browse Blair’s post here.

Monochromatic prints can be ideal for the 9-to-5er that’s multitasking in the mornings. Jillian of Nu Sophisticate is a fashionable attorney that values the importance of chicness in the office. She dons a leather blouse underneath a tailored, stripes-and-plaid blazer and over a matching knee-length a-line skirt. Keeping with her gray, black and white scheme, Jillian accentuates her ensemble with a gray bowler bag, black stilettos and classy pearls. Peep Blair’s post here.
