Color blocking

Now that’s a lot of color

I realized I had a presentation the day after doing my nails. In pink camo. What’s a girl to do but distract them with a bright violet dress? It must have worked, not a peep was said about the fingernails. I admit I have a reputation for colorful outfits at work. It’s hard not to notice an explosion of color walking by in a sea of corporate-appropriate garb.

What pink camo nails?

To be fair, there’s a lot more personal style exhibited these days at work. I had nothing to do with it, I swear, but I do appreciate it. It’s refreshing to see men and women at work be comfortable enough to express themselves through fashion.

{ style tip: }

When color blocking, keep any unnecessary flourishes to a minimum. Accessories can be bold as long as they’re simple. Keep in mind that the bright colors are providing a lot of impact, your outfit doesn’t require much else.
