3 office appropriate summer outfits you need to try


Hey ladies

The temperatures are rising and it’s getting real hot and real humid. On such days all i actually want to walk in, is a lose blouse and flip flops. But being able to get to work looking somewhat presentable takes a lot time searching the lightest and breeziest work outfits. You have more options than you may think. It’s all about choosing fabrics that are breathable and light such as cotton, silk, linen etc. Forget about low shorts and baring tops that show too much skin — here are some appropriate yet very easy breezy summer outfits to try out.

3 office appropriate summer outfits


The Blazer

Try copying Chalize Theron with this chic yet very boss worthy summer outfit. Sometimes a light dress could be a bit too revealing for the office but paired with a light blazer you are good to go. When working in an office you could be cold inside when the air conditioner is working and then hot when you step outside, so its great to wear something you could take on and off.


The Print Skirt

Summer is the best season to show off some prints. Work flower prints and striped into your outfits. Nothing more office-chic then a pencil skirt and paired with a simple tee this will be very cooling and comfortable. I love mixing prints and this look makes it look so effortless and chic. Be careful not to overdue it.


The Pop of Color

Keep this look effortless with the focus on a bright colored midi skirt or top.  Any color will go and this will keep your great mood going. You will feel comfortable but chic at the same time. Since the skirt is such a polished staple you could go more easy with the shoes and top.

    Such great outfits!! For me, dresses and light fabrics are SO key in the Summer. However, I also almost always bring a sweater with me, because I’m always freezing in AC haha. Great tips!

    OK, legit in love with all these outfits!! Fab post lovely! I always layer like a mad woman, the San Francisco micro-climates are totally unpredictable, and scarves are my fave way to stay warm and fashionable throughout the summer.
