The shade doesn't have to be identical but can be from the same palette and still give the same minimal feel. For example if you select grey it doesn't meet you have to have the perfect shade from head to toe. You can mix slate, pewter, chrome and steel grey to create your ensemble. You can add pale shades with deeper tones within the same palette. Be sure to keep it simple and if you decide to add an accent to break up the colour palette make it a neutral like white, black or camel.
Fall 2013's monochromatic trend is certainly a throw to the minimalist trend of the 1990s.
