Profiles of 5 New Yorkers that dress in  FEB 21 2008

Profiles of 5 New Yorkers that dress in only one color.

Why gray?
I actually wore turquoise for eight years, but last September, I switched to gray. I'd had a bad year and needed to get out of it.

That's a big switch.
I like everything to be clean, and gray is clean. Gray is between black and white, so it's a noncolor, almost. I feel messy and unclean if I wear other colors.

Where do you shop?
I make all my own clothes. I can't wear anyone else's.

What about shoes?
That's hard because even the soles of my shoes have to be gray or white. I get annoyed if the soles are black.

Buzzfeed has more on monochromatic outfits.
