Here’s a micro-trend you might want to try: head-to-toe dressing in ONE color or shades, as in monochromatic dressing.

We didn’t want to take it seriously or consider it a trend (since the oldies say it never went away anyway). Still, as soon as we saw Katy Perry attend the premiere of her 3D concert movie in head-to-toe ruby red Dolce & Gabbana (yes, complete with matching shoes), we knew something was up.

Other celebrities who have done the mono-color style besides Katy Perry would be Elizabeth Banks and Sarah Jessica Parker, who attended the Gordon Parks Centennial Gala in shades of purple:
