As the weather continues to heat up, many working gals are faced with a constant struggle: what to wear to work. Most offices are a bit more casual in late spring and summer, but it’s still challenging to find the right balance between professionalism, comfort and style, especially when this season’s styles tend to show a lot more skin. There are actually a wide range of options, and we’re here to inspire you!
Nothing says warm, sunny weather like classic navy and white stripes. Try a loose striped top or a striped dress paired with subtle nude sandals, pumps or ballet flats, light makeup and delicate jewelry. This trend also looks great with one additional color added for a bit of pop, so you can totally add a bright-colored bag or other accessory if that’s more your style. These stripes are also great for summer as they will minimize the appearance of sweat if you have a longer commute.
Breezy, feminine and flattering, maxi skirts are a spring wardrobe must-have. Make sure to choose something lightweight without too much extra fabric to stay cool and fashionable. Pair your skirt with a solid-colored blouse or tee and don’t hesitate to add other accessories like a belt, statement sandals or earrings. If your skirt is more fitted, you may want to choose a looser shirt, and if it’s more flowy, a tighter top or tucked-in button down will be the most flattering.
Pleated or Patterned Skirts
Delicate floral patterns and beautiful spring colors are so tempting this year, so why resist? Keep your look clean and polished by wearing a solid white shirt and limiting brighter colors and prints to the lower half of your body in the form of pleated and A-line midi skirts. Add a necklace, nice shoes and a tousled updo to really capture the magic.
Light button downs and thin tops with wide, loose sleeves can be extremely professional when worn correctly. Pair yours with a pencil skirt and pumps for a sophisticated look, or leave it untucked with a nice pair of sandals or ballet flats if your office is a bit more laid back. Don’t forget to add some accessories, of course!
