A single-shade outfit is anything but snoozy! Championed by the pre-fall collections, from Gucci to Oscar de la Renta and Narciso Rodriguez, this current wave of color-blocking is surprisingly simple to replicate. The key to pulling off the look? Focus on one hue in varying tones and choose clean, unfussy separates—also: keep the accessories understated. Here, we show you how it’s done!
