  1. Can you just explain what does monochrome stands for?

    • In fashion terms, monochromatic dressing means wearing separates of one color that have different textures and/or similar shades of that color for an overall tonal look. Mono=one and chrome= colour, so, therefore, you can wear different shades of a single colour to create an overall tonal look.
