To wear color successfully is important to understand the color and tone. This is the base of monochromatic look.
First we need to distinguish between color and tone.
We can write lots of posts just about color, but for that propose it is important to know that: Color is a pigment wich is described by the name we give to a color. Tone is a property of each color, that came from the darkness to lightness. Just as an example, olive-green, blue-green (teal) and green are three different colors, however light olive-green and dark olive-green are two tones of the same color.
Why this is important?
When you are dressing yourself, to combine two different greens (just because you think that green is green) on the same outfit sometimes doesn’t work, but combine two tones of the same green results wonderfully!
