Fashion Trends In The Workplace

We spend most of our days at work and of course we want to be good looking and not dress like a complete fashion victim. This spring's trends are lace, printed pants and stripes, so today I'll try to figure out how can we match them in the workplace.

Trend #1 Color Blocking
It's very easy to pull off color blocking in the workplace as far as you try to stay in the same color family. A simple dress with colored pumps and a beige bag keeps your 9-5 style interesting. But be careful! Don't try color blocking with neons, bright colors or too many pastels.

Trend #2 Stripes
By wearing striped shorts in the workplace, you may show a little more skin than you should. I love the idea of a striped blazer paired with neutral separetes. And a classic mousseline top would be just perfect.

Trend #3 Printed Pants
I'm having a love affair with floral jeans for spring but jeans in the workplace are an awful choice. Put a professional twist on the trend with a pair of paterned silk pants and a white top and it'll make you look fabulous.

Trend #4 Lace
The office is not the right place for lacey short shorts so avoid this choice. Lace in the form of a blouse or dress is or even a pencil skirt is perfection. You can wear an A-line lace dress, a button-up pencil skirt with your favorite blazer or a blouse and you 're off to work.
