For the longest time, black was the colour of choice for women's blazers and pumps. Nowadays, there are a plethora of colours to choose from for these two staple work wardrobe items.

Instead of pairing a skirt or pants with the typical black blazer and pumps, try pink or any other bright colour. You'll have no problem finding the perfect hue for yourself, as the stores are filled with brights and pastels right now. I'm a huge fan of the matching shoe and jacket look but if you don't feel comfortable wearing both items in a bright colour, just pick one and go with that. I typically prefer wearing nicely fitted blazers but decided to switch things up with an over sized boyfriend blazer instead. I was a little self conscious about it looking frumpy but quickly realized that anything in a bright colour like this looks far from that. What do you think??
