A Work-Perfect Way to Wear Monochrome

What to wear to work? The age-old question that women everywhere ask themselves weekday mornings. Well, question no more, the answer to the decades-old workwear dilemma is here: Monochrome. Inspired by Hugo Boss’s catwalk, monochrome pantsuits, dresses and separates offer a refreshing and modern alternative to ho-hum workwear this season.  And in our books, there is nothing more powerful than a woman dressed in a uniform color. Monochrome is ultra-sleek, stylish—and most importantly, powerful when worn in an office setting. The versatility provided by changing up pieces from dresses to pantsuits allows a range of professional and practical silhouettes.

Every busy woman needs at least one monochrome ensemble. And the trick to an effortless one-color look is sticking to primary colors. As well, the beauty of monochrome is the ability to try out bolder colors (who can forget when Solange rocked a fuchsia pantsuit!?) and still look sleek and office-appropriate.

Keep scrolling to see the killer workwear inspiration, plus how to get the look next time you’re rushing to find a killer 9-5 look!

Mix and match these separates for an ultra-chic spin on the look!
