When the brights are not so you

Many women in their forties shy away from bright colors and prefer wearing neutrals for a professional look. Today, more than ever it is important to not only look professional, but also young and hip. Thus, when styling neutrals for the office it is really important to stay out of boredom land. The easiest way to look interesting, young and hip and on top of things is to pick one neutral color in different shades and add one other neutral plus make sure that the items have different texture.

Outfit inspirations with neutral colors

Here I paired a leather top – read little shiny – with linen pants – read rough texture – with a chambray shirt – read smooth texture and second neutral – with snake print slingbacks – read interesting. For the commute to work I added a classic trench coat – read professional, statement bag – read I have something to bring to the table, and mirrored sunglasses – read the outfit is up-to-date.

Style tip take-home message

Outfits in neutral colors need interesting cuts or different structure to look young and hip. Tweet about this.
