Invest in a Colored Cardigan
A black or gray sweater may go with everything in your closet, but it reads “dullsville.” Meanwhile, a teal one single-handedly adds pop to whatever you wear (even if it doesn’t coordinate exactly). Neutral accessories keep it all cohesive.

Downplay the Details Once in a While
Cleverly conceal the blouse’s splashy printed sleeves with a tailored jacket to promote it to corporate status. Cropped trousers, a unique belt, and a teal bag ensure that the outfit doesn’t become cookie-cutter.

Reimagine the Skirt Suit
For a look that’s just as polished yet more modern, opt for separates. Going monochromatic under a jacket keeps you sleek and sophisticated.

Add the blouse to the trousers and top with the cardigan for an office-ready outfit that’s as simple as 1-2-3.
