Monochromatic colour is one of the easiest colour schemes to work with as it is, simply put, just one colour.
Many magazines get it wrong by describing black and white as a monochromatic scheme. In reality that is an achromatic scheme. Mono means one and chroma means colour. Where as a-Chroma is akin to asexual, it is the absence of colour or gender as in the case of asexual.
Wearing monochromatic does not mean you need to wear exactly the same shade from head to toe. It is just wearing all of the same hue. You may chose it to be blue, red, green or purple. Variations of the colour can be used in a monochromatic scheme.
Everyone can wear a monochromatic colour combination. It is smart, it can be dressed up or dressed down and can be accessorised very easily. Many people who are not adventurous with their style will opt for monochromatic when it comes to formal or dressier occasions as they feel safest in this combination.
