Most workplaces favour the colour blue so you’re not just bang on trend but also make the HR happy. Go ahead and opt for monotonal separates–team indigo with two or more shades of blue.

Keep it chill in a printed indigo polo shirt and a pair of indigo denims. The key here is the focus on the denim so as to break the monotony of the colour. Look for cool washes and interesting details like patchwork–which is another macro trend this season. Team with classic white sneakers and you’re good to hit the pub with your fam.

There’s a reason why indigo is considered a powerful colour. In ancient Greece it was the colour associated with nobility. No wonder then, that if dressing to impress is on the agenda then indigo is the way to go. Pair with neutrals in grey and black so as to not distract from this.
