This specific blazer from Top Shop is great because it is good quality and provides a great fit and silhouette and it's available in several colors.

3. Snake Skin Flats - Patterns like snake skin and leopard are neutrals and will go with anything while adding more interest than solid black.
What to wear them with: As mentioned, this is a neutral, so you can wear it with neutral colors, like all black, or also pair it with colored dresses and tops or even other patterns.
4. Statement Necklace - Accessories easily add interest or make a look that you have worn before look different.
What to wear it with: A statement necklace like this can be worn with a button-down or scoop neck shirt in any color or pattern.
5. Patterned Pencil Skirt - Whether you are curvy or slender, every body type looks great in a pencil skirt and it's also a great look for the office. Getting a fun pattern or color can add interest and personality, or if you're not into color a pencil skirt in a neutral color is a beautiful classic.
What to wear it with: Make sure that your waist is defined by either tucking your shirt in, wearing a contouring sweater, or belting a cardigan. If you don't really have a defined waist, create one by pairing it with a fitted jacket or blazer.
