Add A Pop Of Color To Make Summer’s Workwear Shine
A closet full of office-friendly neutrals is hardly the thing for spring/summer. So what’s a gal to do when looking 9-5 professional is putting a kink in summer’s fun? Add some color. Yes, ladies, it is indeed possible to add a burst of 2013′s hot hues while still maintaining your ready-for-work visage. So give those tired black blazers, white shirts and sensible shoes a break and adhere to our top summer tips for spicing up your workday wear with the season’s bright and bold palette. Here are a few easy-to-add pieces to give your day-to-day look a little more sizzle.
1. Summer is a perfect time to rock a bold-hued pair of work pants or skirt without looking like Bozo the Clown. And with designers parsing out a variety of takes on the dress slacks — all dolled up in summer’s brightest blues, yellows and reds — it’s easy to snap up a pair pronto.
2. If your not quite ready to go full-bore in the bold trouser/skirt department, toting a hard-candy-colored arm piece — in the shape of a brightly hued handbag — is a great way to incorporate the season’s happier palette.
3. Summer sandals and flats are afoot, and full of color. Why not pair a brightly hued pair with a fitted office pant and short sleeve tee combo (add a crisp summer blazer if you must) and make an appropo office-chic statement?
4. A bright pink lip, or orange red mani-pedi are also perfectly appropriate office looks that add just a hint of pop to that drab work-wear.
