How to wear vibrant green in the workplace I don’t know about you, but I have a propensity to wear glum colors in the fall: gray, black, gray, black, maybe a pop of cranberry, gray, black…you get it. If part of your personal brand is to be vibrant or dynamic, definitely consider brightening up your wardrobe. Maybe leaf green isn’t your color, but small doses of a bright color judiciously placed can contribute to your co-workers’ perception of your strengths.

I love that peplum jacket.
I’m wearing red boots right now. The leaves are colorful – why not the rest of us?

May I ask where I can buy that peplum jacket? I’ve noticed from your blog that you shop at White House Black Market, but I haven’t see that color on that site this fall. Also checked NY&Co (where they had an excellent cranberry one), but no teal.

All these colors look great for wearing at the workplace. This selection looks stylish and yet adds color to the dreary season.
Enjoy brightening up your wardrobe!

Hi all! The jacket is a teal ponte peplum blazer from dorothyperkins.com – only $69 (if it’s still in stock).
