5 essential colours you need for work

When you open up your wardrobe in the morning, you realise that your black outfits took up more than half the space. You usually pick out the same few pieces because you might think:

- "it looks classy"

- "it's hassle-free"

- "people will take me seriously at work."

These are very common issues among my clients. We might think black is the colours to fix every occasion we have. Sometimes, black can do more harm than good.

I have clients that wears black pieces that makes them looking more pale than they are or making their skin looking more yellowish than it was. So how can we break this curse?

Let me share with you 5 colours that will help to elevate your wardrobe from basic neutral colours to colours that works for your working environment!

1. White

Some of you might think that white is "easily dirtied" or "it's too bright". White outfits give people a sense of reliability, neat and organised.

Wouldn't this be perfect if your boss or your colleagues think you are capable with your work or when you are meeting clients, they feel a sense of security in trusting you with their business or investments?
