The Monochromatic style trend is one that the world has fallen in love with.
From Kanye West to David Oyelowo, the monochromatic movement is starting to take over the fashion scene faster than a designer bag on a New York runway!

EGL is loving the fact that the fashion realm has yet another strong trend that has emerged and is one that all people alike; man, woman or child; can rock with confidence and full swagger. Plainly put, this style craze is for everybody—including you, gents! If you are a male interested in trying it out, but not quite sure how to make it work for you… We’ve got your back.

EGL has put together four different style boards for you to try out. Including four different color ways, we are completely confident in saying that we think these boards will blow your mind! So, let’s get started, shall we?

Our first monochromatic color option is a super casual one. It’s for the male who loves color, but isn’t looking to be the loudest instrument in the band. It’s our khaki color story.

It features the color green.This board features shades of khaki that would make any man jump at the thought of giving this trend a fair shot. We included a nylon lightweight deep khaki pull over and paired it with a short sleeved khaki collared shirt and tapered joggers. To accessorize things, we threw in a chocolate leather multi-banded wrap bracelet and boots, with camel colored watch. Don’t you just love it?!

Our third color is for the gent who is about business. He needs a crisp and spiffy option that he can dress up and take with him to work or to a business meeting. It reads smart while still dapper and you won’t have to worry about people not taking you seriously. It spotlights the color blue.For this concept, we featured a hunter green bomber paired with true green trousers and sweater. We accessorized this look with hunter green loafers and a solid gold watch for flair. So clean, right?
