Monochrome dressing for the office
We recently conducted a poll on Instagram asking our followers to select their favourites from some of our most popular pieces. The results showed that women who partook in the poll preferred monochrome pieces for their work wardrobe.

FOR YOUR BODY SHAPE
Dressing in monochrome is flattering for all body types. Accentuating and elongating. On the shorter side? Dressing in one colour, black for example gives the appearance of a longer body. Wear darker shades on the areas you want to disguise or blend in and lighter shades on the areas you want to accentuate
SAVES YOU TIME
Dressing in black and white requires less thinking and second guessing in the morning, less time spent piecing outfits together and matching accessories because everything goes! Without having to think about clashing colours and patterns you'll be able to grab what's clean and match together beautifully.
TIME FOR EXPERIMENTING
With your saved time in the mornings you'll have a few spare minutes to experiment with textures and materials. Not having to worry about clashing colours may also give you extra confidence to try new materials or styles you wouldn't usually try.
HAVE SOME FUN
Focus on accessorising your outfit, having fun with jewellery and adding texture, that will enhance your outfit. Show your personality and go a little wild with animal prints, patterns or even florals, or a trend, mix it up. Bags, clutches and scarves or even a shoe to lift the look.
MONOCHROME & YOUR COMPLEXION
Some women may feel washed out in black, especially close to your face, so a white blouse or even earrings can help. Combined with complimenting makeup to give your complexion the glow you may have been lacking. A bold lip and nails are great for something extra. Try red, hot pink or bright coral for something fun and brightening.
BUSINESS DRESS CODE
Monochrome works for dressy and casual when you don't know what to wear. It’s an easy go to for meetings or job interviews or even after dinner meetings and drinks. If you’re starting a new role and don’t totally understand the dress code you can’t go wrong with a black pant and white shirt.
