Gallery 4 Easy Ways to Add Color to Your Summer Wardrobe
1. Add a pair of solid bold trousers.
Saturated pants can absolutely be office-appropriate when styled correctly. Go for a solid pair in a bold shade (as opposed to busy prints) and keep the rest of your outfit as neutral as you can. You can’t go wrong with a fitted white T-shirt, a structured black blazer; and a simple pair of pointy black flats or white heels.
2. Same as the above—but choose a skirt.
Like bright pants, a basic skirt in a bold shade is an easy way to add a chic pop of color to your work look this summer. Choose silhouettes that are office-friendly (save those super-short minis for the weekend, ladies), and pair with a tucked-in white top, a lightweight chambray shirt, or a sleeveless silky blouse in black or white. From there, add a great pair of flats or low heels.
3. Add a bold bag in lightweight leather.
A great bag is a solid way to add some brightness to a look. For summer, choose a structured satchel or cross-body style in a lightweight leather that won’t weigh you down, but will pair well with anything, from a work-ready shift dress to jeans a basic T-shirt.
4. Go for bright flats.
There’s something incredibly hip about a colored shoe when it’s hot out, and we’re all about adding a pair to our workday arsenal. It should be noted that, while we do love a bright heel, they can come off looking a bit too “where’s the party” for some office environments, so going with a bold flat keeps things chicer.
