How to look professional during the dog days
A sleek dress is instant style for a summer work meeting
Typically one associates meetings in summer more with BBQ, rehearsals, weddings, 4th of July, or family reunions. However, lives goes on also in summer. This means there are also work meetings. A skirt suit or pants suit seem just too hot on the commute to work in the mid of the dog days of summer. A white sheath with abstract floral print is a great instant way to stay cool, and look professional in a meeting on a hot summer day.
Accessories keep things interesting
The floral print’s colors permit a variety of possibilities to change the look color wise. Just pick a different color to feature when you repeat the dress the next time for a work meeting. Here I wear my floral sheath with a MOSCHINO belt, my Celine bag and studded orange-peach slingback heels.
Invest in classic sunglasses for work lunch meetings
Since at this time a year, the sun is up the entire work day, you should have a pair of sunglasses handy that matches the vibe of the dress. You may need them for the walk to a work lunch meeting or even during lunch when the group decided to sit outside. Squeezing your eyes never looks professional.
