As a professional image consultant, I usually recommend to my clients that they showcase only one trend per outfit - to keep everything else classic and elegant. In the workplace, we want people paying attention to our talents, abilities and skills, not our fashion sense. In this example, I’m mixing two trends (and only teasing at the third): lace and neon. Lace and neon together could look very 80s - and not in a good way. This works because the skirt is a traditional pencil style. And remember: Rules are important. Rules are good. We should know the rules so we can break them!
