Personal Style | Fab Werkwear Series: Bright Colors


I'm not afraid of prints and I'm surely not afraid of bold, bright colors; however, are they work appropriate?  I believe you can certainly make both work appropriate.  When I recently ran across this bright pink skirt online, I knew I had to order it immediately.  It was under $20 and spring was right around the corner.  Anytime I make a purchase, I ask myself how many places can it be worn.  Due to it being knee length, I knew that if I wanted, I could wear it to work.

The true question is how can I wear it and look professional.  When it comes to a bright color, my first thought is to make sure the rest of my look is neutral.  I opted to wear it with a button up shirt and blazer to add structure.  To have a little fun, I even added a gold metallic heel.

Here are three tips to keep a bright outfit professional:

1.  Wear a blazer to add structure.
2.  Keep your other outfit pieces neutral.
3.  Make sure the piece fits properly.  Never wear a tight, bright item.
