8 Sweet Summer Dresses You Can Wear To Work

By  June 21, 2013

Summer’s here and the heat is in full gear, meaning your typical office wear is going to need some stylish season-friendly revamping. There’s enough to sweat over at work without a stifling ensemble, so ditch the blazers, wool suits, and skin covering dresses and pick a conservative yet breathable frock instead. Unless your place of employment has specific dress codes, showcasing your arms at the office can be acceptable with the right style choices. Keep straps thick and hemlines on the longer side; around the knee is a good length. And make sure the silhouette is professional. Skip the body-con and go with a midi pencil bottom, fit and flare style, shift, or skater dress. If you need some inspiration, ogle over the sweet styles we’ve chosen in our summer ready work dress roundup. They’re so lovely, consider them for a potential weekend outing outfit as well.
