It’s officially Spring! We’re still waiting for the weather to catch up, but in the meantime we can pretend by shopping for warmer clothing. Dressing for work in the warmer weather can be tough- don’t wear too little, don’t wear too much. It’s a difficult balance. Here are some pieces to help.
Wide Leg Pants
In the warmer months, wearing long pants all day is the last thing anyone wants to do. But, a wide leg pant can make a huge difference. They don’t suffocate your legs, they’re super comfortable, and ridiculously chic! I love Rag & Bone’s Marci Wide Leg Crop Pants. A cropped wide leg is even more wearable in the spring and summer.
Although wearing a short dress seems like it would be cooler in the heat, it can sometimes get very uncomfortable. This is where midi dresses come in. They’re the perfect length, and provide just the right amount of skin exposure. Smythe’s Puff Sleeve Body-Con Midi Dress is perfect for the office. The sleeve details and length are sophisticated, and the fabric and pattern are casual.
A thin cardigan is your secret weapon in the warmer months. If your office frowns upon thin straps or bare shoulders, you need to invest in a quality, thin cardi. Just add it to any top that might be too riské for the office, then remove it after work and go straight to dinner with your girls! The Eileen Fisher Organic Linen & Cotton Kimono Cardigan is great for the spring. Its loose fabric and short sleeves won’t overwhelm you when it gets a little hot outside.
Not every office allows sandals or even mules so, the next best option is a flat with cutouts. Removing the middle section of the shoe makes a world of difference, and the trend is totally in right now. I love Corso Como’s Mollie d’Orsay Flat. This shoe is appropriate for the office, but won’t leave you sweating when it’s warm outside.
