Summer Pop of Color to Wear to the Office

The official start of summer was Sunday, so break out the colorful accessories this week to celebrate this bright time of year! I love adding a pop of color to a simple work outfit to mix things up and have fun with professional basics. There are many ways to add a colorful hue, and below are some of my favorite ways of incorporating accent colors into your work looks.

1. Colorful Power Shoe 

Men wear power ties to the office...and women have their power shoes. My red pumps are one of my absolute favorite accessories, and you will be surprised how easy it is to wear these colorful stems with simple basic pieces.

2. Colorful Camis


Wear bright, colorful camis under black, navy or grey suits to add dimension and interest to a basic look. Orange is one of my favorite bright colors to match with basics, and in the summer orange looks especially festive paired with white. You can find camis in all colors at Ann Taylor or Banana Republic and it is a great, affordable way to switch up your look.

3. Hot Hued Handbag


Another way to experiment with color is with handbags and tote bags in bright hues. Black and nude totes are great essentials because they match with everything, but invest in a statement bag to wear with certain outfits for a fun way to liven up your wardrobe. The red tote shown above is MICHAEL Michael Kors 'Morgan Large Tote' available at Nordstrom.

4. Standout Sweater or Scarf 

Add color to your outfit with a bright scarf or sweater over a simple sheath dress or suit. Colorful accessories are great because they mix and match well with a variety of pieces in your closet. Create endless outfits by utilizing these colorful pieces with simple basics.

5. Pop of Colorful Jewelry 

There is no better way to add color easily to an office look than with jewelry. I love statement necklaces and earring that bring instant interest to any professional outfit. Keep pieces classic and clean but don't be afraid to experiment with bold colors paired with neutrals.
