Long days and warm summer evenings are the trademark of this much-loved season. This is no different for the working woman whose summer is filled with balancing long days at the office with seasonal work events and evening soirees. Although it may seem contradictory, integrating work and play proves simpler than you’d think, especially when it comes to figuring out how to dress for both occasions.
Summer style consists of bright pops of color that reflect the season’s atmosphere. Tailored workwear however, tends to be made of thick black fabrics that can hold up to it’s structured patterns, but is definitely not the ideal way to dress in 80+ degree weather. Therefore, focusing on pairing bright colors with light neutral tones, such as the mint green skirt with nude camisole pictured above, creates a fresh look, which simultaneously reflects sunlight to keep you cool throughout the day.
It goes without saying, but choosing pieces made of lightweight and airy fabrics such as silks, cottons, or linens makes all the difference as well. These fabrics move with ease and are perfect for transitioning looks from day to night. Not to mention pairing them with one staple piece, such as a structured blazer or classic cardigan to maintain your professional aura.
By following these surefire tips you can ensure feeling comfortable and chic all throughout the workday and instantly be ready for a night out once work is over. Besides, a balanced life is just that; one where excelling professionally and personally go hand in hand.
