Textures are the differentiation points for Spring 2013 fashion and to pull the quirky combo off successfully that comes from wearing knit, lace and leather all in one, designers use matching hues. Where in the days of yore, matching a white top to your white pants was a fashion faux-pas, you couldn't be any more fashion-forward doing the same today. Pulling off the tone on tone double entendre can be more difficult, though, than just matching colors. Here, we show you how to pull it all together.
Slightly the Same
Tone on tone dressing isn't about matching colors perfectly, especially when you are combining textures. Identicial hues are difficult to find when your mixing leather and lace or knit and digitally printed. Instead, focus on one color group. Here, we focus on mixing and matching brown hues with sharply contrasting textures.

Back to the Basics
Tone on tone dressing may be a huge trend, but that doesn't mean you don't already own something that hits it head on. Pull out your favorite leggings and a similar color top and you will be lounging around the house in a fashion forward silhouette in no time.
