Wearing Pink to Work

 Dress // Similar Heels: (1), (2) // Similar Chanel Handbag, Affordable “Look-a-Like // Nail Polish

 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!

    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!

    • Lee T June 16, 2016 / 4:17 pm

      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!

    • Lee T June 16, 2016 / 4:25 pm

      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!

      Yay! Thank you Lizzie <3
