If your work wardrobe is feeling a bit drab these days, why not take a note from these stylish ladies, and add a bold dose of pattern to your office outfits? Whether it’s a classic touch of leopard print or an entire floral ensemble, punchy patterns and vibrant hues offer a refreshing reprieve from the typical 9-to-5 office uniform of navy, black, and neutral.

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.

    Love the outfits, especially the one with the yellow skirt! This blog post reminds me why I am so grateful that I do not have a dress code at work.

    Love them. I take inspiration mainly from street style, and these are definitely a ten on the “inspiration meter”. Woo hoo! 😀
