Now Entering The Neutral Zone: AFW 2021's Biggest Trend

There was one trend that was everywhere at Australian Fashion Week this year. And if you were watching the street style blogs, then it needs no introduction: tonal dressing.

Tonal dressing is the easiest way to effortlessly elevate your wardrobe. By simply dressing in multiple shades of the same (or similar) hue, while breaking it up with textures and accessories, you can make the most casual outfits look stylish and sophisticated.

For a chic, international aesthetic, we’re loving anything beige, brown or neutral. From blazers and tailored pants; to puffer jackets and bike shorts, this new twist on monochromatic colour-blocking is timeless.

When tonal dressing, the key to keep it looking luxurious is by adding in some textures and similar hues. This will instantly give your outfit an elegant lift.

Classic wardrobe staples can also fit into this tonal trend. That’s right, you can be comfy and stylish at the same time! Look casually cool by styling a linen blazer with your tonal track set. Accessorise with chunky boots for daring juxtaposition, and a contrasting handbag for added visual interest.

Take it a step further with a matching linen blazer-and-pant tailored set. By playing with textures and shapes, you will instantly feel like a boss woman. Break it up by layering a basic white tank with the monochromatic look, and finish the 'fit with a neutral-toned shoulder bag.

You can easily take any tonal look from day-to-night by swapping out your platform sneakers or boots and opting for a mini kitten heel, mini shoulder bag and chic statement jewellery.

Take on our favourite trend this season, and make it your own with head-to-toe tonal dressing.
