From dusky to bright pink, lemon to sunshine yellow, apple to mint green, terracotta to tango orange and taupe to mink brown. All these colours work well with an outfit that has navy as a base. If you need a break from black – navy gives you many alternatives to work with in outfit building!
You can begin to understand why it might be difficult to find the right green for yourself when there are so many out there.
Choose the right green for you and the right outfit for your working environment and you will have a winning professional outfit.
- Select red dress (main base colour)
- Select second colour (contrast/lifting colour: dark navy bag and shoes)
- Add a neutral to run through the outfit (nude tights, nude tone cardigan/jacket and pearl/nude toned jewellery)- could be black, nude or white
There are so many shades out there to choose from. I’m pretty convinced there is a good shade of red for everyone!!
I think it’s a shade that means business – don’t mess with me. It’s strong and powerful: women embrace your red shade.
I think if you don’t want to over do it with red in the work environment you can layer up the colour. One sheer layer for work and then add to it for the evening.

Women working in a wide variety of professions and work places should find navy a great colour to have in their wardrobe. Within the name ‘navy’ there are a variety lighter hues and darker shades, so you can find one that suits your colouring.
In my dress collection for professional women one of the staple colours I offer is a deep traditional shade of navy. It’s almost black but can be more flattering than black and it’s a colour you see me often wear! (For more information on navy)
I have some coral court shoes and a coral scarf with white spots. I think it really lifts it as an outfit.
