Choosing what to wear to work gets all the more difficult during summer. You want to feel comfortable and are constantly looking for options that don't make the already high temperatures worse. Moreover, the most comfortable summer clothes are usually unsuited for work environments and it becomes an unending struggle to incorporate these into your everyday clothing. But the good news is you only need to pick your options wisely and accessorize them well. You won't just look your stunning best but also be cool and comfortable through the day.
Here's a list of five outfit options that you usually overlook while choosing your office wear, but are actually best suited for your summer needs.
1. T-shirt with Box Pleated Skirt
Let's admit that casual tees are the most comfortable to wear during summer, but you need to style it the right way to suit an office look. Pair your loose cotton casual tee with a midi box pleated skirt and accessorize with chunky neckpiece. This combo will give you a semi-formal work-wear look and is as breezy, comfortable and trendy as it gets.
2. Printed Jumpsuit
A jumpsuit is that one garment that successfully bridges the gap between casuals and work-wear. And is best suited for summer when it's bright printed and in a cotton fabric! Just go for the ones with a slightly structured silhouette, pair it with a broad belt and wedges and you're all set for a cool and comfy day at work.
3. Linen Overlay
We are all too tempted to wear those spaghetti tops and tanks to work but always do away with the option thinking they won't suit a work environment. Well, not when you pair them with breezy linen overlay, preferably a shirt. You can even wear a long sleeveless linen shrug over your favourite spaghetti dress or top and you're good to go.
4. Cotton Shirtdresses
Dresses are the most comfortable for long working hours during summer as you don't have trousers clinging to your legs. And what better than wearing collared and structured shirt dresses to work. Go for light pastel colours and cotton fabric and pair them with strappy gladiators to best suit your summer look.
5. Loose Culottes
In case we haven't already appreciated these amazing lowers enough, we have more reasons for you to sport them. They go really well with all things summer, from kurtis to crop tops to bodysuits! Be it bell-bottomed or straight fitted they add a statement to your semi-formal ensembles and are your easiest bet to fusion dressing.
