You may still be crooning to Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” this year but it’s time you made it your reality! Figuring out a stylish summer formal outfit in the sweltering heat can seem hard though. After all, the “less is more” mantra may not fly with HR. To help you navigate the rules of tricky summer work wear for women, we’ve rounded our favourite office-appropriate outfit ideas. What’s more, we’ve included a few styling tricks to the mix. Scroll further to have a peep:
Play with Prints
Corporate clothing for ladies need not be boring! A flare V-neck dress in a fun print will help keep you cool, yet professional during blistering summers. Pair it with hot pink suede pumps and add a chic fanny pack to have elegance and refinement oozing from your ensemble.
Monotone it Out
Summers and suits, who would have thought? Give your co-workers something to talk about in a monotone suit and simple top. Go for a skirtsuit in a pastel shade made with lightweight poly cotton fabric, to ensure you won’t sweat and burn and style it with a light blue fur crossbody bag to look casually stylish without much effort.
Slay in a Shirtdress
The throw-and-go style always wins, thanks to its menswear roots. To inject your closet with fashion-forward cool, pick an apple green shirtdress and add a pair of beige leather heeled sandals and a golden cuff to immediately up the style ante of your outfit.
Be Jumpsuit Ready
There’s no doubt that jumpsuits are the unrivalled look for summer. But is it work appropriate? Why not! Pick a blue cotton striped sleeveless number and pair it with a lightweight jacket to avoid freezing in your Air Conditioned office. Complete your getup with mustard suede pumps to switch things up.
Say Yes to Checks
Be the ray of sunshine in a stunning yellow checkered top and make a statement. It’s perfect for a feminine yet sharp look when paired with a white pencil skirt or even white culottes for a relaxed look. Add a brown sling bag and complete this outfit with a pair of chunky leather heeled sandals.
Go All White
Even Minnie Mouse has swapped her dress for a pantsuit, there’s no reason you shouldn’t. Go for an all-white suit pantsuit made in comfy poly moss fabric for the perfect summer formal outfit on days when you have to meet clients and look professional. Complement this ensemble with beige leather pumps and off you go looking incredible!
Oppan Gingham Style
Everyone needs a gingham dress in their closet. They’re super versatile and a summer staple. Opt for a breezy sky blue gingham dress for a more laid-back style. A brown or black belt and simple white pumps are a must to give your summer formal outfit that extra-tailored appeal.
Fun in Florals
Maybe you can’t reach for your favourite floral dress for work but keep things pretty and professional in a floral top and wear it over your favourite midi skirt. You can add woven flats and delicate earrings to create a look that’s elegant and versatile.
