Wearing Pink to Work

 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.

  7. 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!

    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!
