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.
