It is easy to fall into the monotony of black and grey work wear. Adding one simple pop of color instantly updates your entire outfit. Go for a bright pencil skirt or large handbag if you are bold. If you are more hesitant, start small – add a clutch or a bright pair of pumps. 

Below are some of my favorite picks right now to add a pop of color:

The menswear pieces I find easiest to incorporate are bow ties, ‘smoking slipper’ style foot wear and suspenders. You can also be bold and go for suspenders or a pocket square. Below are my top menswear picks:

5) Combine Casual & Ultra Conservative
