Monochromatic doesn’t have to mean a single shade head to toe.

A cream-colored pair of knee-grazing shorts will keep things grounded when you’re on the go.
Whether you’re water adjacent or not, embrace an oceanic palette for alfresco summer gatherings in the grass, amid the sand dunes, or in your backyard.

Lean even further into summer’s breezy lifestyle with easy on-and-off slides, coordinating cat-eyes, and a complementary beach blanket.
A punchy pink outfit—particularly one that centers around a sporty polo dress—reads effortlessly energetic on sizzling days. A canvas tote, sneakers, and pearl-and-shell necklace harmonize perfectly. For a summer holiday, take things a step further by matching your toiletries for the ultimate in color coordination.
When out and about with your pooch, a neutral take on monochrome keeps things easy yet elevated. Look to an off-white sweat set and black accents for contrast, such as a sleek black baseball cap, two-tone slides, and a quilted carrier fit for a chic pup.
