The inspiration for this outfit comes from none other than Beyoncé. Queen B stole the show during the 2013 Grammy Award’s with a minimalistic hot black-and-white jumpsuit. What can you take away from this outfit? Less is always more. Monochromatic outfits work very well for business casual and formal settings. They can also be styled easily with statement and pearl jewelry.
