Fashion 9-5: The Polka Dot Skirt And The Yellow Trench Coat

I have not been able to do a “fashion 9-5” post in awhile. However, today I’m giving my business causal wearing ladies some fun inspiration with colour and polka dots.
Did you ever imagine that combining a polka dot skirt and a bright yellow trench coat, would actually look this chic and be appropriate for the workplace?  I didn’t until now.

All the items used to create this hip office look were already sitting in my closet but I never thought to put them together.
The highlight of the outfit was this yellow trench coat that I purchased at Hudson’s Bay some time ago. Initially, I was really unsure if I would actually wear it, and it seemed very impractical at the time. However, the bright yellow colour made me smile every time I passed the rack and I had to buy it for that purpose.

I then paired the trench coat with this monochromatic polka dot skirt that I found at the thrift store, and a pair of black heels. 
So don’t be afraid to ditch some of those dark or neutral colours and wear something bright.

I hope you liked the post

Until Next Time
Sincerely Miss J

    I would style a yellow trench coat with blue also. This is a great look. Black and white always mix well widths bright shade. Sharonhttp://www.afashioncrowd.blogspot.com
