The great switch

Here’s an easy way to spruce up your work ensembles when you’re stuck in a rut:

Switch out your blah blacks and dark browns for cool greys and buttery camels. This is especially helpful now that fall is (kind of) upon us, and we are seeing more cool-weather colors in the stores.

I may sound like a broken record to any clients reading this, but I truly believe that a light grey trouser is a key ingredient to a crisper, more modern office look.

The same goes for camel. While browns in general are not the most flattering, a rich camel color can prove sophisticated and chic.

Now, I’m not saying black and brown is the wrong choice. Black can’t ever really be the wrong choice. However, if you are growing bored of your standard professional look and want to switch it up without spending a ton of money, invest in a few new pants to get you started.

Some of my favorites are the Mad Men-inspired trousers from Banana Republic, Ralph Lauren’s wide-leg pants, and these super wide-leg ones from Alice & Olivia.
