Wearing colored clothing and accessories is a fun way to express your personality at work. However, for those who aren’t used to wearing bold hues, it can be a daunting task. But fear not color-phobes!

This week’s Cubicle Chic is all about how to add color into your wardrobe without overwhelming the senses. And we’re going with shades of green and cobalt blue, hot colors of the season.

Dress / Blazer / Necklace / Bag / Shoes

Try adding a colored blazer and necklace to a simple all black outfit. Statement necklaces are perfect because they add as much {or as little} color as you want in just one item. To keep from going overboard, select one solid colored piece {like this SJP draped blazer} that coordinates with one color in your necklace and keep everything else neutral.

Injecting color can be super simple. In this case, take a floral blouse like this one from BooHoo and add matching accessories like flats and stud earrings. This particular shade of blue isn’t too loud and is an excellent segue into adding bolder colors once you become more comfortable. And yes, you can definitely mix black and blue!

Finally, you don’t have to opt for chunky accessories if that’s not your style. These earrings pack a major punch and coordinate perfectly with the H&M skirt, which is a fab piece to transition into fall. Also, even changing up your neutrals from black to creams or browns can make your style more interesting.

How do you wear color to work? Are you more into bold hues or muted tones? Do you add color with accessories or clothing?
