Hurricane Issac is making its way towards our lovely state, but we won't let that dampen our spirits here at Daniella Kronfle Jewelry. This upcoming storm is nature's way to say to us Floridians "hey guys, Autumn is almost here!" And with Fall, we also get new trends like this years revival of monochromatic dressing shown on the runway by everyone from Calvin Klein to Chanel.

What exactly is monochromatic dressing? Well it essentially is picking a solid color and sticking to it. I admit I do love fun prints and florals, but when it comes to looking chic I usually opt for this type of style. It's less distracting from my jewelry which I'm always showcasing and is a great way to streamline a silhouette.

This is not by any means a new trend. It was big in the 80's and 90's. It is a very minimalistic approach to dressing, yet it takes the same effort, if not more so that going for prints, which convey texture which at times you might not necessarily want. Color is affected by the material or fabric, so it takes a skillful eye to get this to work. The cut of the garment is also important; one can look totally polished wearing only one gorgeous color.

The monochromatic trend of today is about a look that is tasteful and detailed. This is when jewels come in. A one-color look can often appear boring or muted without a few statement pieces, therefore ruining the look altogether. The color should be soft and flattering and no black does not count. For me, it's usually jewel tones that work the best, like a fabulous ocean blue or emerald green.

When you wear a single color, including your jewelry, from head to toe you appear slimmer and more put together. There is no break in continuity and the outfit is fluid and elegant. Nothing looks classier that wearing clothes in nude or ivory with a strand of pearls or champagne diamonds. Or how about a gorgeous smokey quartz ring and earrings with an outfit of browns and chocolate. Another one of my favorites is wearing rose gold pieces with blush colored pants, a blouse and matching leather accessories. The possibilities are endless and the looks are always striking and original.
