OOTD: Corporate Cutie

Gone are the days of penny loafers, over sized pants and solid neutral 80's/90's inspired skirt suits! In today's Corporate world, woman are taking more risks with fashion. Just like color can brighten up one's day, color is also the new "IT" factor and if done right, you can transform your boring work blacks, browns and creams into bold AND tasteful work attire.

I took a neutral tan/brownish pencil skirt (Macy's) and added pops of color with a royal blue vintage top (thrift store), pink belt (thrift store) a pink/gold necklace (Bakers) with nude pumps(ALDO) and got rave reviews from the co-workers and management (Tehehe :-)

Dressing too fashion forward was once frown upon because work was supposed to be a place of business, not a Fashion Show. But I believe you shouldn't have to be limited to the same color schemes and clothing options because you can make your outfits look good without drawing too much attention to yourself. It also depends on the type of company or business market your in....
If you work in Fashion, Marketing, Public Relations or any related field,  I say the Bold, the Better. If you are in a more traditional work environment, sticking with more darker colors (reds, blues, greens) or light pastel colors will be your best friend (and not make your boss mad.)
