How to look chic in monochrome

This time of year is all about transition – think winter to spring, dark to light, cosy to cool – and effortless colour-blocking is a simple way to kickstart the new fashion season. Spring calls for gentle evolvement when it comes to style, and picking one colour palette creates a polished and pulled-together look. So, opt for neutral camel, your favourite blues or floral-inspired deep pink. Read on for the BOSS Womenswear take on monochrome dressing. And remember: layering is law.

Dark decadence

First up for flirting with the head-to-toe trend: choose a colour you feel at home in. Dark blue flatters just about any skin tone, hair colour and body shape, so it’s the perfect starting point. Swap dark denim and a navy top for a fluid, full-length dress. Feminine and easy to wear, you can throw it on and punctuate the look with a new pair of boots in a contrast colour for an elegant finish, or sporty trainers for a casual take. No styling required! Amp up your look with statement outerwear to give yourself an air of sartorial confidence.

Into the blue

Slip into spring with a brighter tone of blue, evoking a cloudless sky. Begin with a coat that makes you feel beautiful, and steal the shade for the rest of your outfit. Light knitwear blends perfectly with wide-leg trousers for a tailored look, and can be teamed with a pair of high-heeled pumps in a neutral colour for understated contrast. There’s something very cutting-edge about going all out in a mix of dewy blues.

The camel creative

Giving a nod to nostalgia and high-trend at the same time, camel has the rare ability to adapt to vintage-inspired looks as easily as it does to catwalk-ready collections. Dress it up or dress it down; this neutral colour maintains a luxe feel. Make leather your key fabric for a smooth finish – mix a soft shirt with a wrap skirt and add boots in another neutral shade, or mix A-line leather with a high-neck textured knit, full-length coat and heeled boots, for unequivocal camel from head to toe.

The pink professional

Step away from the nudes and baby pinks; grown-up dressing is done in a darker shade of this season. And it means business. Think a tailored suit in an oversized fit, mixing the boyfriend look with the feminine associations of pink, or a flirty, flowing dress that’s touchably soft. Add athleisure-inspired footwear, and pink becomes a colour that has less to do with kitsch and more to do with high fashion.
