We love a pop of color at the office, but what’s even better? An entire look in one monochrome hue. Not only does a singular shade take the guesswork out of killer office workwear when you’re half asleep on weekday mornings, but it’s also a serious statement maker. Sticking to a main color family gives your textures and styles some time too shine, too. And that’s exactly what Reader of the Week Ambra Brice did when she tried out a look inspired by October’s “Color At Work” story. “I love incorporating color into my work wardrobe to bring a little spunk to the office,” she says. Brice paired a utilitarian umber leather skirt with chiffon shirt of the same color, styling it just off the shoulder for a hint of skin. A textured clutch adds visual intrigue against the monochrome look.
