Business wear doesn't have to be boring. Adding flair and a pop of colour to your everyday workwear can seem daunting, but when you keep to a few colours or specific prints in your wardrobe it can become super easy! Choose pieces borrowed from the boys like a boxy white shirt mixed with your ladylike pieces, such as the pencil skirt, to create a fresh new outfit.
Contrast is key here: picking simple but bold prints and complimentary colours will do wonders when mixed with your black and white basics. Yellow and pink are a match made in heaven; adding them to your monochrome essentials creates a look that is fun yet smart and coordinated.
Here’s how I suggest adding a pop of colour to your workwear:
- Exchange your black skirt for a pale pink number from Witchery, equipped with zips
- Throw on a pair of statement golden mules and black patterned pencil skirt from Seed, tuck in an essential white shirt from Country Road and finish with a baby pink bag by Mi Piaci on your arm.
- Mix a simple black pant with contrast white stripes from Cue with a soft pink peplum top from Country Road.
- Choose a flowing pair of pink wide leg trousers from Glassons with a bold belt from Cue, a yellow striped top from Seed and complete with a white blazer from Witchery.
Borrow the loose shirts, wide leg pants and boxy blazers from the boys and mix them with the soft pinks, pencil skirts and pointed flats already in your wardrobe to create a whole new spectrum of outfit opportunities.
