The best way to stand out in the office is with statement-making color. Keep things work-appropriate with tailored pieces and, if you’re nervous, stick to a neutral dress and add a bright coat or jacket that you can slip off if required. Add some barely-there kitten heels, a clashing clutch and some playful accessories to up the impact.
When it comes to after-dark dressing, you want to balance the eye-catching with the elegant. Look for simple shapes in show-stopping colors, like this dress from Rosetta Getty, and style with color-block classics: strappy sandals and a classic clutch by Bottega Veneta are perfectly chic finishing touches.
Inspired by the ’80s
The 1980s power-dressing trend is going strong and satisfying all our boss-lady fantasies. For a modern take, try some cycling shorts for summer and pair them with a bold-shouldered blazer. Add some skyscraper heels in a brilliant bright tone and the perfect statement earrings.
Sprinkle some energy into you every-day outfits by switching your play-it-safe classics for something that pops. Look for sweaters, T-shirts and jackets in jewel tones which are just as effortless to style as their understated counterparts; simply add jeans and a pair of oversized sneakers.
