What Colors You Should Wear to Work and Why

Posted by Claire Erickson on

Having trouble picking out what to wear to the office? Focusing in on the colors of your wardrobe will not only help you narrow down your options for the day, but will  also benefit your career in the long run. How you might ask? Color can affect our own moods as well as the moods of others. So, be sure to wear colors that will affect you positively! 

Here are some great examples of dress colors from LadyBossBloggerShop that you should wear to work:

1. Velvet Cake Dress

According to Business Insider, brown is "the color of stability, brown is also seen as masculine. If you're a woman in a predominantly male workplace, wearing a chocolate brown [dress] can give you credibility." If you don't have these characteristics naturally, then wearing brown is so important.

For work, we recommend this dress with a white blazer-- especially during these summer months! 


2. Meetings All Day Dress

Believe it or not, when wearing green to a workplace, some of the subconscious thoughts and feelings your coworkers may have include profit, as well as "go get 'em." This makes sense, don't you think? Money is green and green means go! So to ensure your success at work, try out some green. 

For this outfit, wear some natural makeup, curled hair, and a fresh manicure!


3. Little Bell Dress

You won't be feeling blue in this dress! Blue, in the office, actually resembles truth and wisdom, according to Business Insider. "It also has a calming effect and is linked to intellect." So if you have a lot of talk around the water cooler, "blue is a great color to wear to counteract the tension."

We think this dress is perfect as is, so don't add too many accessories. Perhaps, try a pair of pleather, dark brown, pointed-toe heels. 


4. Vintage Peplum Dress

Black-- elegant and serious. Is there any other color more perfect for work? Because black is also a neutral color, you can pair it with any of the other colors above to have the perfect ensemble!

For this frock, a structured bag will pair perfectly with the structured suit-like fit of this dress.
