Professional since I came out of the womb, I’ve always found shortcuts to making fashion ‘work’ within my 8-5 timeframe. While, some of us have it more lenient than others, there are always ways to pull off specific looks in the workplace.. if you’re careful! We know that color blocking is still here to stay and I’m rounding the edges here a bit to accommodate for all careers and work areas. Let’s get started!
Think PINK: When you want to show that edgy, girly side to your outfit, you want to make sure you’re balancing the outfit out with some neutral shades or common colored purse. I’m usually ALWAYS playing it safe when it comes to heels in the workplace, mainly because the funky-colored shoes are usually not as comfortable. I stay towards the low-inch, chunky-heel, wedge category for work. So far, no complaints! Here’s a little nudge to your inner girly. I’ve always loved bow ties on men. I think it’s such a classic and trendy look.. and then thought, “What about us LADIES?!” Who’s to say that girl’s can’t pull off men’s wear better than.. well, MEN! Just poking fun, fellas! But.. Seriously, SHARE!
The Blues: I had to throw some pops of color in here, but by using a black/white scarf, you distract the mind of the variety of colors going on, which makes you look more pulled together! Not to mention some comfy loafers? I’m completely sold.
Mellow in Some Yellow: When you want to be noticed, but not look like a clown, I’m finding yellow is the “it” color this season (a more mustard yellow to be exact). Here you can see that instead of pairing yellows with neutrals and browns, I’m trying something a little different. I, for some reason, think of the sea with this piece by piece. It’s playful, yet classy, and based around one solid color. Try finding one color that you absolutely LOVE and work your way around with it. Spend an extra 5 in the morning and try a new spin on your color blocking skills.
