The result is bold, sophisticated, and remarkably feminine. Katharine Hepburn would be proud.

Ben Sherman, $138
Shades of grey look smart and sophisticated. Layer pieces in a similar hue for a modern take on monochromatic.

 

 

Banana Republic, $130
Tuxedo-inspired trousers become an after-hours option with an embellished top and a jewel tone clutch.

 

 

Ted Baker, $235
Warm up with the Midas touch. Opt for a skinny gold belt or a handbag with some haute hardware.

 

 

 

 Gap, $64.50
A classic pinstripe channels the softer side with a bow blouse and ladylike accessories.

 

 

 

High style
This season’s best new shoe: The men’s lace-up Oxford gets a modern-day makeover with a sleek feminine shape and lofty height. Paired with a pencil skirt and belted top, they add a stylish kick to any work wardrobe. Perfect for traipsing through glass ceilings.

 

Enzo Angiolini at Nine West, $180.00
