Euro chic

Styling a work outfit with European style roots

When I lived in Europe and had a meeting to go to I would pick an outfit with all neutral colors and one piece with pattern, just like this one here. I would always go with a skirt, top, blazer combination, pantyhose, and pumps. I even had an extra pair of pantyhose always in my work tote! Just in case.

It is quite interesting that in the US people are more open to wearing color in their professional lives. It seems like in the US a wider range of colors is accepted as looking professional when the attire is looking put together. It seems that even in a conservative office nearly every color goes, but those that start with neon.

Neon color and neon gas

Neon is actual a chemical element and a noble gas as it is chemically inert. Neon provides a reddish orange glow when used in low-voltage glow lamps or neon advertising signs. The red emission line of neon leads to the red light of helium-neon lasers. The gas itself is invisible.
