Spring Summer Fashion Formula #5: Be Bold with Accessories (Especially at Work)

April 23rd, 2009

Spring Summer Fashion Formula #5
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

Your job may require you to limit your fashion choices, but you can still express your personal style.  You just need to be creative about how you do it.  Here, we show you how to dress up a basic foundation outfit with statement accessories:

1. Start with conservative foundations: a drapey knit blouse and a pair of twill trouser pants.
2.  Add a tailored, belted trench to look instantly pulled together.
3.  Against the backdrop of conservative blacks, greys, and blues, be bold with your accessories.  Here, we experimented with both color and pattern.  The herringbone tote jazzes up the solids, while the cherry red shoes add a zing to the otherwise dark outfit.

How do you accessorize your work clothes?  Share your style with us in the comments!

    That houndstooth tote is to die for! I love it. I do love bold accessories and I like to add a lot of color to my work wardrobe. It helps to brighten up a sometimes dreary atmosphere.

    Those patent pumps are perfect!

    I’m a big fan of belts, but also implement bright or patterned scarves for my work looks. I totally agree that bold accessories are all it takes to perk up a conservative outfit.

    Doh! I was so about to buy that bag, but it’s sold out. This reminds me that I need some good red shoes though….
