How to Add Color to Business Wear

This outfit is a great option for days at the beginning of spring, when its getting warm but still chilly outside.  This color make the outfit stand out and will put you in an uplifted mood.  Try adding some color to your business wear to get you out of those winter funk moods. 
Perfect spring outfit, wish this has a slight sleeve to give the shirt a more professional look but this would work in a business casual environment.  She added a soft pink color to a basic tan skirt which livens this outfit up.  A dark blue would also look nice with a khaki color bottom.
This is a great shirt, it adds color but doesn't over do it.  The pattern also looks very professional and the wide shoulder make this a great business shirt.  Yellow is always a nice spring-summer color so this would be a perfect fit for a warm spring-summer day.  Bring a black blazer for cooler offices
Love this color, it's so cheerful and the ruffles make it fun.  This would be great for a business casual office, add a blazer to make this into a business professional look.

How to wear Tights + Business Wear

Wearing tights during business is very simple and keeps you nice and warm.  Some of these outfits need alterations but they show you how to take different outfits and turn them into Business Outfits.
This is a perfect example of a great business casual outfit.  She can also add high heels and a professional blazer to bring this into a business professional look.  Sheer pantyhose is best with longer skirts.
 
Please NO Scarf or sunglasses, besides that this outfit actually has potential to be good looking.  Add a blazer, cardigan or coat to bring this into a winter business outfit. 


A little too dressy but this is a perfect example of how you can wear a dress with tights and heels.  Try a more professional looking dress something that covers up your top more.

Great winter business outfit!  She has mid length boots so this is even an approval snow day outfit.  The professional blouse and cardigan bring a sophisticated essence to the outfit.  Although the skirt is above the knee this is acceptable due to the opacity of the tights so steer clear of sheer pantyhose with this length skirt.

She shows us how to wear patterned tights at a professional level.  I would opt for a solid black dress stay away from any patterns since your wearing such eccentric tights.  Long sleeves would make this more acceptable.

Another example of how to pair tights with a dress and stay looking professional.  Perfect for the spring or winter months, add a long coat for the winter and a smaller cardigan for the spring.
