1. Embrace White
Incorporating white into your office wear is the easiest way to make your work outfits fit for summer. A good pair of white pants are a wardrobe staple. I personally love these & these!
2. Add Bold Accent Colors
Summer colors like bright yellow, pink or orange can be work appropriate in small doses. When used as an accent color in a shoe, handbag or even top, any work outfit will feel more suited to the season.
3. Add Prints & Patterns
While I recommend playing with prints & patterns year round; they are especially important in the summer months. Work outfits can feel drab and prints and patterns are traditionally more playful and fun – just like summer. As you can see from my summer office outfits, I love floral & stripes.
4. Switch to Neutral Basics
Where you would normally wear black – wear white, tan or cream. In other words, switch out those black pencil skirts for tan ones, black pants for white ones, and black heels for nude ones.
5. Add Accessories
Because the summer is traditionally more relaxed – even for work wear – you can get away with wearing bolder accessories than other times of the year. A pair of statement earrings can totally be styled for the office!
