Everything becomes more relaxed in summer, including the way you dress for the office. Here are three summer wear-to-work looks that are right in sync with the season.
1. Gingham Dress For Business
Just because warm weather allows for more relaxed business wear, it doesn’t mean you should show up to work looking sloppy. To keep up your boss babe image, choose classic pieces in light color and summer prints.
This chic gingham sheath dress is an excellent example of a polished, no-fuss summer work dress. If it came in red and white checks, it might look more like a picnic tablecloth at this time of year. However, the same fabric in tan and cream is low-key and casually elegant.
Pair this dress with these classy, strappy sandals (or cream closed-toe pumps depending on the formality of your workplace), a structured purse, and some fine gold jewelry, and you’re ready for your next board meeting.
2. Sporty Stripes for the Office
Another summer classic that works as well at the office as it does on weekends is the classic striped top. Wear it instead of a blouse under a pretty pastel blazer for a more sporty work look. Cropped dress pants that show off a pair of modern slides go perfectly with the summertime vibe. Pearl studs and a top handle black leather tote keep the look conservative and professional.
3. Front Tie Shirtdress For Work
Lightweight fabrics and more casual silhouettes are another way to welcome summer into the workplace. Tailored, button-up cotton shirt dresses are trending right now and work well in many workplaces. This cute pinstripe shirt dress is polished and professional. The wrap tie waist gives you a great figure and makes this dress look modern and relaxed. Quality accessories such as a good leather bag and classic sandals in a neutral color up a level this summery office look.
