Business not-so-casual.

Let's get down to business: Dua Lipa offered up a master class on mixing work and play with her latest outfit post on Instagram.

Though she didn't offer much via her always-cryptic captions, the gallery showed wearing a leather-look bandeau with thin halter straps under a boxy pinstriped blazer. Her pants echoed the strappy details in her top and she added a Y2K-appropriate chain-strap shoulder bag to the look.

"4 the thrill," she wrote with the photos, adding a blood-drop emoji to suggest that there were some vampiric or gothic intentions behind the ensemble. Her sleek hair and deep, smoky cat-eye makeup do offer a bit of sinister energy, though her poses — especially one with a big kiss to the camera — are more in line with Lipa's more playful outfits. This skin-baring look comes courtesy of stylist Lorenzo Posocco, who also shared the outfit on his Story.

In her own Story, Lipa noted that her beauty look was a DIY effort, adding "been playing around doing my own make-up" over close-ups of her eye look. 

Lipa's all-black look comes after outfits that showed much more skin and embraced summer's lighter vibes with cutouts, very small halter tops, and corsets. Unfortunately for fans of Lipa's very distinct fashion sense, she didn't make it to the Met Gala this year, telling her followers that she had prior obligations that got in the way of celebrating fashion and American Independence (she nabbed a role in a movie called Argylle). Back in 2019, she attended the event in Atelier Versace.
