When: Tuesday November 23, 2010

Lace ruffle top: Saks (Panama)
Patterned skirt: Christmas present from my parents (Panama)
Beige trench: Forever XXI
Black belt: Christmas present from my parents (Panama)
Burgundy tights: Forever XXI
Black pumps: ? (Panama)
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Maxx

Where: Went to work but was sent home because I was feeling sick.

Today's outfit was a real challenge because I had to wear a professional outfit for work that included colored tights (because of this week's challenge). Out of all my colored tights, I feel that burgundy is one of the few colors that could look professional if worn right.

I think I managed to make this outfit look work appropriate by keeping most of the outfit neutral and sophisticated. I really love this new beige trench my parents bought me for my birthday!

Do you wear colored tights to work? What colors do you use?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this patterned skirt:

  1. The wine colored tights are fabulous on your Marie!! And your smile is gleaming like always. Hope you're doing great!

  2. I wear colored tights in a professional (but creative) setting all the time. I say go for it and rock them proudly!

  3. this is cute, cute cute!
    I just love the dark red tights, belted blazer, and ruffles!

    Chic on the Cheap

  4. Burgundy tights are great for business casual outfits. Navy, dark green, dark purple would be other great colored tights for work. :)

  5. I like this! I just bought my first pair of colored (if you don't count gray) tights today. They're plum purple. I can't wait to give them a try.

  6. With colored tights, it depends on how and what you wear with them. In your wonderful outfit, it's a perfect example. It looks very professional. I think that people shy away from colored tights because they're afraid of standing out. I just bought a pair of purple tights the other day and I haven't gotten any stares like I'm a weird alien.....I was very surprised. I love my colored tights, but I guess that's because I love colors!

  7. Burgundy was the first non-neutral colored pair I bought. This is my favorite one so far!
