Street style: The case for black and white

On manic Mondays when I find myself switching from a really-great-weekend-that-I-wished-didn’t-end to the work week, the benefits of having an easy-to-coordinate wardrobe comes to light.

First day in the black street chic office outfit

The case for black & white: the monochrome wardrobe is easy to co-ordinate to create an effortlessly stylish outfit first thing in the morning.

Adding a little charm to workwear, literally.

black bag for the office

A great classic work bag shape and I like the amount of relaxedness in this work bag. The only thing about when I have used bags like this is that I realise I’m too lazy to keep having to close them properly at the clasp – what’s been your experience?

Pack your lunch in a separate bag

The case for the dedicated work lunch bag: it practically minimises the risk that the precipitation or spill of your work lunch will ruin documents in your work bag down to zero. The most basic variety is a plastic shopping bag but for more stylish options like the one pictured here, check out the Business Chic Lunch Bag board on Pinterest!

Inspired? Monochrome is SO good but there’s also a case for going beyond black and white – check that post out too!
