We have nothing against spring’s color-blocking trend, but we’ve already set our eyes on the palette-cleansing monochromatic looks that were aplenty during the recently-concluded Fall Fashion Weeks. Although the word “monochromatic” automatically generates images of black-and-white ensembles, designers created a healthy mix of minimalism and flamboyance for Fall. Pops of color still ran wild, but offered a more streamlined aesthetic. From the year’s bright tangos to the second-skin appeal of tan, we’ve rounded up the best monochromatic looks from the Fall runway shows.
