Colour your Corporate

The corporate look is very often and mostly around dark colours and yet, speaking from experience, colour can make a huge difference in the office. Try combining something bright with your every day suit and watch peoples faces – you will see I am right 😉

I once had an ex boss especially come to visit me as he was missing the bright pink and orange cardigan I used to wear in the office – sounds terrible I know but I promise you it was a stylish cardigan – smile.

A couple of my current favourite corporate looks with colour:

1)  A touch of Yellow:

Black suit vintage – Benetton and Top vintage Witchery.

Similar available here:


Blazer Mango, Trousers Mango , Top Msgm

2) A touch of Orange

Suit jacket Boss (vintage but their staple), Skirt Fidellio (their own brand this season), Top Veronika Maine, Shoes l’Autre Chose (vintage)

Some wonderful shoes I found online:


Sophia Webster, Sergio Rossi, Valentino, Bally, click on image or brand link to buy or simply browse online.


I wish you all fun adding a bit of colour to your dark suit – would love to see any pictures of you following this advice – can then publish in another post to inspire even more women to bring a touch of colour into the office 😉

Oh – almost forgot – Funky Forty is having a Zurich shopping tour on 30th May 2015 – it would be super cool to meet some of you readers in person!
