Black, grey, white, and other neutral colors look a bit boring after awhile. A great way to make those colors pop is to add a bold colored handbag. Red, baby blue, yellow, and pink are extraordinary colors that make your eyes go “BINGO!” once you see them.
A girls best friend are not diamonds. It’s shoes. Whether it’s flats, heeled sandals, pumps or sneakers; shoes define an outfit. For that professional look, pointed toe flats or heeled sandals and pumps work best at putting the icing on the cake to make that monotoned outfit come to life.
Some may think having the highest heel is best, but NO! Stop there and think about elegance. I’m not saying it absurd to where heels higher than four inches. I’m just implying that certain heel sizes can have different meanings.
Now, I know what you are thinking. “You don’t wear jewelry so how can you tell me what looks good?”. Well, I used to wear jewelry, but it’s just watches and I can tell you I’ve seen some very beautiful statement pieces from watches, necklaces and earrings. Watches are a must for a professional. How can you not look at the time. Time is money don’t you think?
For a classy, professional look, go simple! Bulky is for men. It is best to keep your wrist gleaming but subtly.
4. Accent Colors
Remember that black, grey, white and other neutral colors? Yea those. Add an accent color to compliment the piece. If your blouse is white and your slacks are beige, try adding a navy blue blazer or red scarf.
Accent colors are a MUST when it comes to neutrals. This goes for your bag, watch, blazer and other accessories. Yes! A blazer can be an accessory. Remember, accent colors can go with ANY neutral. School of Decorating has a good color chart for grey. I suggest you check their blog out.
On my journey to the fashionably intelligent, I’m learning a few hacks. I love sharing them with you all. Soon enough you’ll put the “pro” in professional.
