If you're eager to shed winter's black, taupe and grey color palette, you'll adore this spring fashion trend that's wearable for the office and casual weekends. Color blocked outfits that combine two or more saturated hues, as in this burgundy and red street style outfit that's ideal for wearing to the office, are going to be major for spring fashion this year. To avoid looking juvenile when you wear bright colors, stick with separates from the same color family, as pictured, and pay attention to perfect fit. You can also add instant polish to color blocked outfits for work by styling them with black accessories, a black coat or blazer.

Pastels are one of the biggest style stories for women's fashion this spring. We absolutely love the look of a work wear basic, such as a tailored blazer, when rendered in a soft pastel shade, especially when worn with menswear-style separates, as pictured here.
