I’ve been going nuts about prints lately, and to be honest- why not? They’re vibrant, and you don’t need to accessorize like a buffoon just to look hi-street. I wrote an article on Lipstiq.com today about wearing bold hues for the workplace, and I think I did a pretty decent job putting some outfits together on Polyvore.

• Go for one bright-colored piece and keep the rest of the colors simple. Neutral shades like beige, white and black can never go wrong.

• If you really like prints, wear colored patterns on smaller pieces like a blouse and wear a blazer over it. This is especially great for boardroom meetings.
