Summer outfit for the office
How to beat the summer office outfit challenge. It’s warm outside and chilly or cool at the office, in public transportation or the own vehicle. Another aspect is that summer clothes especially light (comfortable) cotton-print dresses are typically cheaper than cold season clothes and easily look frumpy. A way out are wearing separates.
Today’s post provides a summer business casual outfit with separates that goes beyond the traditional color scheme of all neutrals. You can find tips especially on how to dress for summer work meetings during the Dog Days in the post at this link.
Indeed the example outfit featured in today’s post builds on three statement colors that are quasi analogous colors on the color wheel. Fuchsia and purple. The asymmetric skirt provided the color palette. A purple silk blouse, black statement belt with purple gemstone flower-inspired buckle and pink shoes plus nude pantyhose were added. The combination is tied together by the colors of the skirt.
When you like the outfit, why not pinning it to your Pinterest board?
When your work dress code does not require pantyhose, skip them for comfort on very hot days. However, keep in mind they are awesome to create a flawless leg look as they hide spider veins or even out non-tanned skin.
When the work code requires hosiery, stockings have come a long way. Why not giving them a try?
How to alter this look
When the AC of your office is over-performing, a cardigan or light sweater in pink look great with this outfit. When you add a black cardigan go with a black belt and black heels instead of the purple belt and pink heels.
The shirt-skirt look also works with purple or nude pumps or a pink belt. On a rainy day, a taupe or black trench coat are a great option to protect yourself from the elements.
Instead of accentuating your waist by a belt, you could tuck in the blouse (which looks very conservative) or do a half-tuck. The look may work with a classic neutral color blazer in the fashion forward corporate style world as well.
For an interesting summer business casual look try to look for classic cuts in non-neutral colors to make a style or fashion statement and stick out of the crowd of blue, black, brown, tan, beige and grey clothes. See the post at the link for more ideas on how to look great with more than 3 colors in one outfit.
