Monochromaticism has been on my brain lately ever since Joanna Goddard's piece on Monochromatic New Yorkers took the world by storm...at least that is what I thought until I recently browsed through my wardrobe remix portfolio and noticed that I have *always* been a devotee of a monochromatic palette.
For years (the shaved head days), I wore brown exclusively. As a student in an industrial part of Germany, I adopted the shades of grey that graced the sky, the air and the earth as my own personal crusade against standing out like the chubby blonde amidst the sea of gaunt brunettes that I, indeed, was.
Nowadays, I am more likely than not to embrace a monochromatic look, and I think my choice of article (a) is significant, because it is not just one color I have chosen. Rather, I enjoy choosing one color to highlight for that particular day, and just going at it with a MEGA attitude. Perhaps I don't fit the same mold as the Monochromatic New Yorkers, with their entire wardrobes built around a single hue, but I like my interpretation of the monochromatic look just the same.
Can ya dig it?
