A colorful, patterned silk scarf is the easiest, and probably one of the most affordable, style choice to accent and freshen up office wardrobe basics. I have amassed quite the collection over the past few years, and lean towards red and navy as versatile colors, however, the occasional bold, ferocious animal print is another good and fun option. Many of my favorite scarves have been discovered and salvaged scouring through bins and racks at consignment shops, which offer amazing accessory deals.
The medical editor in my office told me I look like a classic flight attendant, then immediately explained that she meant this observation to be a compliment and not an insult; little did she realize, the aesthetic symmetry was purposeful. Mirroring and mimicking traditional flight attendant styles is a favorite and frequent strategy I employ to maintain a crisp and pulled together look in the office.
