How to Style Bright Pink for Work

Wearing bright pink pencil skirt, white button down and blue suede jacket. Photo cut off at knee length.

Bright pink is one of my favourite colours and today I’m showing how to style it for an office setting.


It’s been a while since I’ve left the corporate world and at that time my wardrobe consisted of two colours - black and grey. Perfectly appropriate for the office, but fashionably boring in my now updated opinion. I would have never chose a pink piece back then, but today I would wear pink in my outfit everyday. So for this office friendly outfit I paired a bright pink skirt with a white button down and a blue suede jacket. For the accessories I added a bright pink purse, pink accented jewelry, and lace heels. The bright colour works in this outfit because it is a structured piece that is paired with lighter tones and other modest structured pieces making it office appropriate. What do you think of this outfit? Would you wear this to work in a professional environment? Do you like wearing pink?

  4. That is a gorgeous colour combination, Lili! I left corporate world in 2014, two months before migrating to Canada and there are days I miss the fast pace but usually I am content with chasing my little one around. I had the same style like you; black, grey and lots of white. LOL!

    1. Wow, moving to Canada must have been a big change as well. I can't imagine if I had to move there right after. And I miss that fast paced lifestyle too sometimes, though I am looking forward to having a little one in the future so I probably need to sit back and save my energy :)

  6. Hahaha! Black and grey, those are the colors I wear to the law firm or to coat and they are boring indeed. Pink and other bright colors are nowadays accepted into the corporate world and it all depends on how you style them and in your case you did a perfect job. The white blouse and the neutral snake print shoes and the minimal jewellery is indeed the way to go.

  10. You pull it off very well! I would probably wear it to the office in a little bit of a toned down hue because I'm not as daring!
