Bright pants are a bit tricky for the office. I wouldn’t recommend them for a very strict business environment. If you’re office is a bit laid back, here are my tips for wearing bright pants.
First, I would stay away from prints. Stick to a solid color, blue, green or red (I own them all). Pair them with a tailored blazer. I picked a dark blue to add some contrast and to tone down the bright green. I was considering wearing a white or tan blouse, however I found this top in the back of my closet and loved the monochromatic look it created. Finish the look with a pair of neutral shoes. I didn’t wear the necklace or bracelet to the office, a bit too much for me. I added it later in the day for dinner with friends.
Tell me, would you wear bright pants to the office?

Ooh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an outfit shot. There’s been a lot going on at work so I’m sorry that I’ve neglected you all a bit. The good news is that I kept taking pictures of my outfits so you’ll get to see them all.
What do you think of my color combo? It was inspired by last year’s DVF and Gucci looks. I just toned it down for the office.

There are a few items in my closet that have been in there for a VERY long time. This skirt is one of them. I don’t wear it much, but when I do I like to wear it with some color!
