Bringing A Little Color To The Workplace

So after a week of wearing all black, I’m ready to feature to feature some color, and I thought I would veer back to some work looks since it had been a while since I’ve included office fashion on the blog.

Shoes:  Sugar (Available at Kohl’s here)
Sweater:  Torrid (Available here)

For the first look, I took a summery, almost bohemian outfit – the pleated maxi and embroidered top and added a black suit jacket to give it a little more polish.  This is definitely one of those looks in which you could easily walk right out of the office, lose the blazer, and head out for a comfortable casual evening.

Skirt:  Eloquii (Available here)
Top:  Target (Available here)

I love the ease of the top left out, but tucked in, my legs look a mile long, which, given my height, never happens, so it’s kind of fun!

Tote:  Target (Available here)
Earrings:  Prabal Gurung for Target
Blazer:  The Limited (Similar here)
Bracelets:  Target, Express

With today’s second look, I faced the sometimes brutally cold office air conditioning with a red drapey sweater which I paired with a white dress and beige booties to help keep the overall look lighter and more summery.

Dress:  ASOS
Booties:  Target
Earrings:  New York & Company
Necklace:  Ann Taylor
Bag:  The Limited
Glasses:  Valentino

I have a tendency to only pair this dress with black and to highlight the zipper detail to create edgier looks, but the red sweater brings a softness to the dress that feels just right for the office.

Which look do you prefer?  How do you add color to your professional wardrobe?
