I was recently asked whether or not I think you can look professional while wearing pink. To me the answer is a resounding yes! If anything, I feel more confident when wearing pink to work because it reminds me that not only am I taking the professional world by storm but I am doing so as a fashion-loving woman who, yes, likes the color pink.
I feel more powerful knowing that I can do the career that I love without compromising who I am and what I like. While I do still wear black suits to work a lot, I am focusing on brightening up my wardrobe when/where I can.
While I wouldn’t recommend wearing your hot pink mini skirt to work any time soon, I firmly believe pink can look work appropriate. This J Crew dress combines a professional, tailored cut with this soft pink shade, creating an easy wear-to-work outfit. If you are looking to incorporate pink into your work wear wardrobe, look for items with classic shapes & silhouettes to balance out the bolder color choice.
The widget below has some of my favorite wear-to-work, completely office appropriate pink items that are available right now. Do you wear pink to work? Let me know in the comments below!

Right?! Pink does not have to mean unprofessional.
Thanks for stopping by! <3
Pink is gorgeous on you!
You look gorgeous in this dress!
Thank you so much Amy!
So simple, and so chic!! Love the color of your dress! Beautiful!
Thanks so much Elise!!
I think with keeping it to a single shade in an outfit and keeping the fit of the piece professional and conservative you can definitely wear pink to work! This dress is perfect!
Yay, im so glad you think so too! I agree, its all about how you wear it – one shade, conservative fit, etc!
I also agree… hot pink… maybe not. But this blush pink dress with nude shoes totally shouts confident and professional. I love it!
Agreed! Shade of pink is definitely an important consideration. I think you could still do a bold pink – but not in a full ensemble (like this dress haha) a bold pink shirt under an all black suit could work though!
Absolutely love this! Pink can definitely be professional when done right, which you did 🙂
Yay! Thank you Lizzie <3
That dress fits you like a glove, it looks great on you! That blush color is my fave this Spring! Love your bag, too!
