Skirt & Blouse
A great way to add some personality into your work wardrobe is by pairing colorful tops with more neutral bottoms. In the case of this business-friendly outfit we’ve chosen an orange blouse from Banana Republic paired with black pants (or skirt depending on your personal style). It’s important not to push too far when adding some life into your work wardrobe without going overboard on creativity or color. The key here is using one statement piece that will help elevate the rest of your clothing choices so they don’t appear boring by comparison.

How to wear color blocking
Color blocked looks are all about bringing one particular bright hue into the outfit and pairing it with black, white or other neutrals. Each piece should have a strong contrast against each other in order to make this type of look pop . When wearing these types of outfits, use accessories like belts and watches that complement your entire ensemble’s pieces by matching their hues. Avoid items such as ties since they might distract your bold statement pieces rather than complementing them. Color blocking outfits work best when you’re wearing a shirt, skirt or pants. These are the exact same color as each other and should usually be avoided on top of sweaters or jackets .
Monochromatic Outfit: Dress
A monochromatic outfit can add some sophistication into your wardrobe without being too loud for professional settings. To create this look we’ve chosen an LBD (or little black dress) from Mango paired with a burgundy belt and accent accessories like earrings to pick up on the deep red hue in the center piece. Monochromatic looks provide endless opportunities for creativity since both men and women can wear suits, dresses , skirts etc. Type of ensemble also allows you to mix and match various colors to create an infinite amount of outfit combinations.
Pastel clothing for work, bright colors for the office
There are a few ways you can make your wardrobe feel fresh and new. You could switch up what you wear everyday or even just have one day where you dress differently than normal. One thing that is always in style though with business clothing is color! Colorful clothing never goes out of style because it adds so much brightness to an outfit . It makes any business look more cheerful. You will want to stick within certain boundaries when it comes to wearing colorful suits. But there are easy ways around this rule if that’s not really your thing . If dressing brightly isn’t something you’re comfortable with then don’t wear a bright suit. Wear colorful clothing and accessories instead! Colorful fabric on your skirt or blouse will be just as effective without looking like you’re trying too hard .
If pastel is more what you are going for then it’s still possible to make this look work with business clothing, but there are some rules that come along with wearing the color of the season in an office setting. First off, don’t wear any form of pastel from head to toe. You want your outfit to have variation so choose colors that match each other well and use one bold piece to stand out against them all . If you do decide not to go with a whole outfit in a matching shade then keep at least two similar hues together in your look.
