In the previous blog, I owned up to and declared my undying love for the Monochromes. Well, while you may feel that majestic skirt was a little extravagant for a less fashion-conscious city than Paris, I do rock it like a pro here. So, what do you need to look straight out of a runway when dressing up for your work? Monochromes, yes, but which ones? Well, sweat no more, here’s an outfit list with the 10 must have key pieces for your Monochrome Formals.
You got it right, we are going to update your wardrobe with all things SS18 and trendy while keeping it basic so that it stays beyond the seasonal love.

Must have Key Pieces Monochrome Formals:
1. Tie Neck Flutter Striped Blouse
Pair it with white jeans or black trousers and you’re good to go!
2. Collar Belted Wrap Dress
Add a little ‘oomph’ to your work-wear style with this wrap-dress. Also doubles as a great cut sleeve coat in the colder weather.
3. Self-Tie Waist Striped Tapered Pants
Definitely one of my go-to is the high waisted monochrome pants. Pair these with a sleek blouse or a plain T-shirt and you’re set.
4. O- Ring ZIp Front Overalls
Overalls and suspender styles are what I’m living for in this Spring-Summer. This trouser will look amazing with any white or nude blouse and will list your Fashion Quotient instantly!
5. White Belted Side Slit Shirt Dress
I love this dress to bits because of how functional it is. You can wear it as a dress or style it with a pair of trousers, too!
6. Button Sleeve Keyhole Back Top
Another kill-worthy top with all those details. Pair it with a skirt or a trouser and voila!
7. Pleated Blouse Dress With Bow Tie
Beautiful tunic style blouse, best worn with a pair of leggings or jeggings.
8. Striped Lapel Shirt Dress With Belt
This dress can be worn with formal style power shorts or just as a dress and you’ll always find it flattering.
9. Checked Bowtie Top
Another dramatic top in the list which can be worn with just about anything to lift your wardrobe panache.
10. Layered Blouse With Bow Detail
If I could have only one piece out of all the above mentioned, I’ll probably get this one. Loving the dramatic neck, frills, and the tassle. Legit, all in one!
So, that’s all on my list of must-have key pieces from the ‘Monochrome Formals’ section. Hope this will help you in updating your Spring-Summer wardrobe. If you have any more exciting ideas, do share them in comments below.
