What to Wear to Work During Summer

Why is it that when summer comes, out first instinct is to wear something shorter, sleeveless, more revealing? Here’s how to look summery without baring all …

Getting dressed for work during the summer is hard; a fine balance between looking presentable and professional and feeling elegantly cool when the weather gets hot. This season’s neutrals look professional and flatter skin tones: try a camel suit that you can wear as a two-piece of break up. Dress a two-piece down with a classic white T-shirt, add a great pair of gold earrings and feminine slingback shoes. Find new ways to style a blazer for summer; it will add a tailored feel to a more casual look. Think of pairing a midi skirt with short-sleeved top under a long-line linen jacket in a complimentary shade. Invest in an easy-to-throw-on ankle-length dress. Move from desk to dinner with a simple shoe change. Hard-working summer staples? Short-sleeve white cotton shirts, mid-calf grazing culottes, lightweight cardigans, fine wool jackets and lightweight cotton trenches.
