Monochromatic: Fall's Fashion Look

This Fall, designers like Maurizio Pecoraro are advocating a monochrome vision that extends from head to stockinged toe. The key to this ultra-matched look is tights, particularly in hard-to-find hues like persimmon at Bottega Veneta, ocher at Nina Ricci, and burgundy at Albino. So, put away the matte black Wolfords for next season. Knee boots will create a similar effect as seen in the collections of Akris and Halston, but hosiery's reign is undeniable. Even pattern-loving designers like Anna Sui and Paul Smith did custom legwear for complete coordination. Match away, my lovelies!
