The Perfect Summer Workwear Wardrobe
Summer fever is in full swing for hardworking office-dwellers and employees devoted to their computer screens. Brighten your days by dressing with the perfect summer workwear wardrobe. Clothes can completely affect your mood (and the mood of others around you!) so it’s important to put thoughtful consideration into how you dress yourself every day. The easiest way to increase work morale is in your own hands; dress for summertime.
Suits are easy. Shift dresses are always a go-to. These office-appropriate pieces are always right for your work space, but Style Doctors wants to take advantage of how many work places are starting to become more lenient when it comes to dress code. Express yourself by investing in some summer staples for the office. Stand out from the crowd, take note on how to style pieces multiple different ways (for multiple seasons), and feel great throughout the day.
It’s time to update your worn button downs with…is it a shirt? A dress? Wear it both ways, because this staple is going to be your new favorite thing that you own. Leave it loose over cropped cigarette trousers for an easy vibe, or belt it to show off your waist and pair it with a killer pair of court shoes to look taller and leaner. Keep it from looking too casual by remembering to accessorize with office-appropriate jewelry and your favorite tote.
Whether you’re tired of your pinching flats or you’re ready to trade out your stilettos for something a bit more comfortable, slides are your new go-to. A sleek leather pair as a flat or a block heel go great with any office outfit, and let your feet breathe on the hottest of summer days. Keep it close-toed if you work in a more corporate setting, or go for a peep toe or sandal style to show off your new pedicure.
Reviews may be mixed, but you can’t argue the fact that these trendy babies are comfortable. Loose-fitting construction leaves you feeling breezy and fresh, no matter how humid it may be outdoors. And at the height of their hype, there’s no need to invest on an expensive pair. Look for the cropped skirt/pant hybrid at one of your favorite fast fashion stores.
