What Is Tonal Dressing?

Tonal dressing is wearing different pieces together that fall within the same color family. It sounds easy to do, but there’s more to it than just wearing one color from head-to-toe.

We’re showing you a few ways you can pull off this technique using your favorite staples. By opting for pieces you already like, getting started and leveling up to bolder colors will be easy.
