If the spring runways dictated one thing, it was: Color is in! And while candy colors make us all smile, it might be nerve wracking to attempt to incorporate them into your work wardrobe. Herewith, some tips:
When it doubt, use black as your foundation. Pick one bright piece and pair it with black. For instance, we love this hot pink Halogen skirt, which looks perfectly professional with a black blouse, black heels, and a black satchel.
Make conservative fashionable. Is your workplace ultra-buttoned up? Luckily, many designers were inspired by work wear this season, which means lots of suiting. This Chloe double-breasted dress coat in a gorgeous true red epitomizes the idea.
A simple sheath always looks great in color. A well-tailored sheath, like this style from Rachel Roy, will look good no matter what shade.
Have a little fun on Fridays. Instead of resorting to jeans or khaki’s when it’s time to relax, why not opt for a relaxed frock? This Marc Jacobs number is loose and playful, but the belt offers some structure so you don’t look sloppy. And of course the color is gorgeous.
Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Still unsure about going bold with your wardrobe? Start off with a bag or shoes. This Fendi lady-like clutch is extremely on trend and comes in an incredible cherry red, black, and camel combination.
