Dress

Sunny, professional yellow dress - REALToDo CRM
https://www.amazon.com/HiQueen-Sleeve-Bodycon-Pencil-V-neck/dp/B073XFL2TC/ref=sr_1_6_mc?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1509058193&sr=1-6&keywords=work%2Bdresses%2Bfor%2Bwomen&th=1
This dress is a striking choice for a first meeting with a client. The sunny color is sure to make an impression, but tempered with the professional cut of the dress and the soft grey cardigan below it doesn't become to forward or flashy.

Cardigan

Elegant cardigan that balances well with a yellow dress - REALToDo CRM
https://www.amazon.com/Free-Live-Cardigan-Sweater-Heather/dp/B06XPSBVV9/ref=sr_1_9_mc?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1509058435&sr=1-9&keywords=grey+cardigan
The grey of this cardigan is warm enough to complement the yellow in the dress, but still tones down the brightness by adding a layer of a neutral palette into the mix. The flowy cut contrasts well with the structure of the fitted dress, and it is a steal at only $9.95.

Earrings

Bright yellow earrings that pair well with a yellow dress - REALToDo CRM

Earrings are a perfect place to bring a little more yellow back into this outfit without having it be overwhelming. Matching the colors will make you look put together, but leaving the color in an accessory means that you don't have to worry about matching shades, especially when buying online. These studs are a fun combination of traditional and modern that make them a good choice for any type of client.

Shoes

Versatile grey heels that go well with almost anything - REALToDo CRM
https://www.amazon.com/Betani-Womens-Strappy-Pointed-Closed/dp/B06VWP2N48/ref=sr_1_39_mc?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1509059863&sr=1-39&keywords=light%2Bgrey%2Bheels&th=1&psc=1
Shoes offer another easy way to bring color into an outfit, but there is a key reason why we've stayed grey here and chosen a colorful dress instead: grey heels can be made into a staple of your wardrobe. They can complement the yellow dress in this outfit just as well as black pants in another. While these shoes aren't going to break the bank at only $30.00, spending money on pieces you can use again and again with a variety of outfits is worthwhile. And with how cute these heels will look, you'll want to be able to wear them often - something a bright yellow pair might not make feasible.
