I like pushing the envelope with work attire: bright colors, statement jewelry, print mixing. (I think it adds a little pep to the work day!) How does one (hypothetically) prevent it from going too far, though? I think the color palette is everything - and this dark navy color is making it possible to mix three prints plus add a large necklace. Even with all that detail, it feels (fairly) subdued to me, simply because everything is so neutral. What prints could you mix in your closet this week to give them a fresh spin for work?
