Trending Now: Your Guide To Tonal Dressing
Tonal dressing and tonal fashion have well and truly returned to the fore. From the recent street style and runway looks of Copenhagen Fashion Week to the flowy and free tonal outfits worn by Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Em Rata. Tonal dressing is a head-to-toe fashion strategy that blends similar colours and their varying shades within that colour palette.
From classic all-black outfits to bright orange and lemon yellow tonal outfits a la Ganni, sky blue sets via Christopher John Rogers and Dion Lee, and khaki everything - we see you Latimmier - tonal dressing is enjoying a hot moment in the sunshine, and we’re here for it. Especially as fashion weeks, runways, festivals and crowded streets return to a pre-Covid buzz.
Ton-sur-ton, tone-on-tone, neutral-on-neutral, bright-on-bright, whatever you call it and however you choose to wear it. Tonal outfits and tonal clothes cut a statement silhouette, a classic go-to for a sleek and sophisticated look.
What is a Tonal Outfit?
In essence, tonal dressing is all about wearing the same colour in different hues, styling each piece for a head-to-toe outfit of various tones and shades. Or, just one block colour, all put together.
Easy on the eye and a refreshing way to pair wardrobe favourites together, tonal fashion creates an instantly put-together look. Tonal outfits are a seamless choice since each piece you pick is a true aesthetic match for the other.
Take an all-black activewear look – one of the easiest tonal fashion colourways and an instant fail-safe option. First, team the Dynamic Sports Bra and Dynamic Legging, then tie them together with the Heads Up Sweat in Black. Now you have an elevated tonal outfit that works in the studio just as much as it does on the street – from running errands to dressing for casual Fridays in the office.
