Wednesday Outfit: A Brighter Color for Work

Wednesday Outfit: A Brighter Color for Work

My wardrobe is mostly black and white this session, but every now and then, I just need to wear color.  I picked up this dress at a Neiman’s sale before Christmas and, it’s so bright and bold, I just had to share.  Please excuse the selfie-style photo, it’s what’s available to me at the moment, but it helps share the look.

Dress // How bright and fun is this color?  I just adore it. Maybe not exactly right for a very professional office, but mine is a bit more relaxed.  This fuchsia frock from Badgley Mischka is available at The Outnet on discount or at Olivela full price.

The fabric is a thick crepe.  The dress is lightly lined.  It has a slit, but a work-appropriate one.  And the puff sleeve gives it a little bit of whimsy.

Your size not available?  This Tahari dress with a shorter sleeve comes in a similar color but a few more sizes.  This Black Halo dress is also deeply discounted.  And if you need a plus-size option, this Calvin Klein dress with black accents is very feminine.

Mask // My every day mask, the Wolford reversible lace mask, makes an appearance.  For a more affordable option, try this Eugenia Kim birdcage mask.

Jewelry // These dainty studs from Missoma are now my daily driver earring.  I adore their simple, but pretty, look.  They’re a great earring.

The necklace I’m wearing in the photo was snapped up at a TJ Maxx years ago.  I love that it makes an impact with the oversize beads, but it doesn’t steal the show.  I can’t find the exact one now, but this one from QVC is similar.  This abalone necklace is also a nice option with a bit more color.

Boots and Tights // I’m wearing black Spanx tights with this outfit.  I could probably get away without them, but I prefer to wear them when I wear my sock booties.  It gives you a really clean, 2-out-of-3 leg line.  It simplifies the look a bit.

I own the Stuart Weitzman sock booties.  They’re sleek, comfortable, and once you treat the suede, easy to keep clean.  For a more affordable option, I dropped these MIA boots in the collage.  If you need a wide width, Aquatalia makes one, but sizing is limited due to a sale.

Bottom line, I wear color when I’m tired to boost my mood.  This look is good for my medium-professional office.  If I need a blazer, my favorite Express one with a puff sleeve is where I’m headed.

Do you wear color to the office?  Which one is your favorite, and what’s the best way to style it for your workplace?
