What I mostly like about pink is that it is a versatile color. In 2000 pink was almost always associated with Barbie, was a true girly color and it was almost always paired with purple (obviously!). Recently pink has become an easy to wear shade anywhere and anywhere (with a few exceptions). Do you think pink is too girly to be worn at the office? Think again. Below you will find tips on how to wear pink at the office, in a day by day outfit or how you can combine this color. Because when in doubt, you can always wear pink!

Myth: you can't wear pink at the office
False. Only if your boss is a conservative person, he always wears gray and black and watches Fifty Shades of Gray in his spare time. Pink can easily be adapted to office wear if you have a simple rule in your mind: it should be the color of office-appropriate clothing. You can swap that boring gray blazer with a blush one, or you say that black pencil skirt with a pink one. And so on.
Dip your toe in pink
Since millennial pink has seeped into the worlds of fashion, digital design and even kitchen appliances, very modern-ish outfits are the ones containing pink. You can go for a flowy maxi dress that works perfectly with a pair of flat sandals like these ones or a structured belted dress, a pink dress is a favorite when it comes to capturing everyone's attention. Because when you're in doubt, you can wear pink!
Don't stop with just one shade of pink
Pink goes with pink, more precisely you can wear a blush top with a fuchsia skirt. Or you can choose a pair of office pants in a gorgeous shade of rose with a magenta top. For example, in today's outfit, I choose a pink jumpsuit and a pink blazer, both in different fabrics and different shades of pink. This combination works perfectly, it has that wow factor that I was talking about in an older blog post.
If you choose to wear pink, accessorize lightly
From my point of view, pink is an eccentric color, those darker shades like magenta, for example, are crazy. For a day by day outfit, I recommend fine accessories like an elegant gold bracelet or a fine gold necklace. Regarding shoes and bags, pink works just fine with white, light blue, beige or black. If you want to go for a dramatic look, choose a yellow bag or red / green shoes.
