Personally, I adore tonal dressing. I think it is such an effective way to bring a look together without spending a massive amount of time or energy.
The key, for me, to nailing a tonal look is to work with different textures and varying hues of the same shade. I think the easiest way to pull it off is by going for neutral tones like grey and cream.
I love wearing cream jeans with a beige cashmere knit and a camel coat, or grey jeans or suit trousers with a charcoal shirt over a grey knit and a tweed coat or blazer. Add mock croc or snakeskin footwear and accessories for another tonal texture element.
I’ve also seen metallics being added to a tonal look which can look super cool, again it’s ALL about different textures in similar hues.
