A crisp, black suit with a contrast panel — it's certainly not a groundbreaking idea. It is, however, a style move on the rise again, thanks to Hillary Clinton's Ralph Lauren presidential debate look and Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, wife of the Canadian prime minister. Since these political leaders definitely take fashion into consideration, we've got a careful eye on their outfits, simple black-and-white separates included.
The thing is, Hillary and Sophie are not the only spotlight-stealing power women we look to for inspiration. Claire Underwood, while a fictitious character on House of Cards, is just as mindful of smart tailoring and a modest-yet-alluring palette. No wonder all three ladies are fans of the sleek two-toned suit. Read on to see how they added a twist to the most classic workwear ensemble, then shop for similar options. You'll be surprised how a smidgen of colorblocking can turn heads.
