Monochrome's Fashion Moment in the Office

Screen-Shot-2016-01-07-at-10.02.54What's black, white and chic all over? The monochrome trend, that's what. So you'd better make sure there are no grey areas in your work wardrobe...

Yep, the mono trend has officially cast off its Sixties connotations for good, as designers are now playing with all manner of decorative devices to give black and white a fresh, modern makeover. In a complicated world, there’s something reassuring about clean, simple black-and-white, especially when it’s organised into logical stripes, grids, and figure-flattering vertical planes. The look is modern, cool, and assertive – but never in your face – and smacks of feminine professionalism done right.
