- Brightly colored blazers, skirts, tights, and ties can be appropriate in CERTAIN situations and can add flare to your attire... be sure to make sure you know when it's appropriate or not.
- Bright colors may not always be the best choice when wanting to look professional. Mock trials would be a semi appropriate time to be bold. A real court room would not.
