A basic black skirtsuit is a must for the office. Although I love black, it can get boring. Pairing a black suit with a bright red or berry lip and a fun blouse can make a statement without interfering with the sophisticated look that wearing all black can give. If you don't have a cool, patterned blouse, you could opt for a tie-neck blouse like the one I'm wearing, although if I'm being honest, they're not too practical. They have a tendency to untie throughout the day, or sometimes the bow lays funny, like in these shots. If you can get it right though, they look elegant and classy. If you're not sure where to buy your work suits or office attire, check out this post from last week, listing my favorite online workwear retailers.
