I would say only in black, however, experiment, and going with your mood is what it's all about!
You never know what you might put on or see on someone else and just think to yourself, wow, that looks fantastic!

I think it only works in black. One day while walking I saw this lady, who had only red on. Red shoes, pants, shirt, red weave piece, red lipstick, and to top it off she had a red choker with a huge red flower on it. If anyone watched Sex and the city, the choker looked like the one Carrie had with the huge flower while waiting backstage.

Astrid's all-black always sounds beautiful.
I agree with helena and think it can also work well in navy and grey.

I do like the all black look, very elegant, but I think if you don't abuse of it, it will make it look special.

I also like all white/tan sand looks.

I agree about black. And I personally think its tricky to pull off. I think a lot of hip hop artists need to lay off, kids do it a lot too. Pink hat, sweater, sneakers. GAG.

Very 70s. I don't really like it 99% of the time.

The chavs thread reminds me, all Burberry isn't good either.

I like it visually, for photos shoots etc. it can work...in everyday life, it's a bit harder to wear head-to-toe yellow, green etc. I think red can work on some people though...

It was done on the cheap in Erykah Badu's "Bag Lady" video and it if they'd spent a little bit more cash, it would have been good.

Attached pic doesn't really do it any justice

I think it's doable if the pieces are different shade of a color or different texture. Like black on black can be very different.

But yea, please stay away from all denim, and especially ALL LEATHER - that just freaks me out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I completely agree with what faust says.
If the different articles have different shades or materials it is fine.
