We know that spending the summer in an office can feel like a crime. But in between sunny vacations and the blissy staycations, the work has got to get done. So why not crank out the content in style? The silver lining of spending your summer in the office is that you can use it as an excuse to buy new attire to rock while stuck indoors. Because TBH, winning the company’s OOTD is secretly akin to employee of the month ;)
We’ve teamed up with Neiman Marcus Last Call to inspire your summer professional wardrobe, no matter what kind of office you work in. We’ve sung their praises before, but let us repeat ourselves: We’re downright smitten with Last Call. It’s become our go-to spot for designer brands at a price we equally love. Last Call stays on the pulse of the latest sartorial trends and carries *tons* of brands, so there’s definitely something for everyone. Read on for four outfit combos for a seriously dreamy summer office wardrobe.
Traditional Office: If rocking a blazer at your day job is a must, opt for a lighter shade than your usual go-to and pair with a white pencil skirt. Try incorporating loud prints and colors in subtle ways, like on a pair of killer pumps or with a punchy citrus tote. Talk about summertime-fine!
Creative Office: If your place of biz is anything like Brit HQ, then your only dress code requirement is to have fun with your ‘fit! We looooove a good jumpsuit round these parts and can’t get enough of this Laundry by Shelli Segal number. Pair it with colorful accessories — like fun yellow tasseled sandals, a thick cuff and summery sunglasses — and prepare to induce major outfit envy.
Uptown Office: Is your office conveniently located near a slew of ultra trendy brasseries and cocktail bars? Rock an ensemble that will easily translate something suitable for an evening on the town with a chic midi dress with a hint of skin. Accessorize with statement-worthy accessories in the same color family, like this delightful Furla crossbody bag, perennial rose gold Michael Kors watch and a coral leather pump.
Casual Office: If your company has no dress code to speak of, lucky you! Sport those perfectly-fitting overalls like it’s your job (see what we did there?) over an off-the-shoulder flowy blouse. Top it off with a playful fedora and some seriously adorable knotted wedges for a look that will definitely bring the sunshine vibes indoors.
