Office work and summer are far from being a perfect match. In spite of this, trends call for a fashion touch to the office wear and this summer makes no difference. So let’s see how can a fashionista be perfectly trendy in an office.
The Corporate Big NO
Trend may ask you to look casually sexy for hot days but stay away from strapless tops and spaghetti straps. They may be ok for a night office party but for everyday work you should choose something more casual. In case they are your only option and you work in an increasingly hot office make sure you have a blazer or a shawl at hand to cover up when walking around.
Open Toe vs Sandals
In case your pedicure is flawless, sandals are ok for the office. Provided you choose a formal design you can wear any type of sandal you like. Keep in mind the amount of walking you need to do around the office.
Dresses are perfect for the office and this summer there are a multitude of options to choose from. You can choose draped dresses, cowl neck dresses or color block dresses. The recommended hemline is knee length and you can play with colors. However, stay away from neon and all white.
Skirts are also part of the ideal office wear. Pencil skirts are perfect for the office but in case they are not very fitted you can choose an open leg design for summer. Just make sure you are not showing too much skin. Flared and sixties style skirts are ideal too and they can be combined with a more casual top.
In case you choose to wear mini there a few things to consider. The rule “ short hemline – long sleeve” is golden when office wear is concerned. Apart from this you should always dress up a mini skirt. Statement necklaces or blazers are perfect for the task.
The pants suit is an office classic but this summer you can cheer it up a bit. Depending on the office wear code you can wear colorful and even flower print pants. Tailored shorts are also an option provided you dress them up by wearing long sleeve and spectacular jewelry.
Office wear calls for smart accessorizing this summer. Ankle straps shoes, super flats, kitten heels are all ideal for office shoes. Necklaces in all shape and sizes can help catch the eye in a positive manner and nice touches like lace collars, lace effects on skirts and jackets or embroidery can completely change the look of an office wear.
