Make a statement in the office this summer! When the mercury begins to rise, we’ll show you how to go back to basics with your wardrobe to stay fresh and stylish at work. So let’s create a chill – but in the best sense of the word.
Throw that jacket off! Tight clothes and synthetic fabrics also have to go. Arms and shoulders are out in the open; materials should be fluid and light, like silk, Lyocell, tulle or chiffon. It’s the perfect time to wear a short-sleeved V-neck jumpsuit, fitted at the waist and pleated on the hips. Pair with Vanessa Wu heeled mules or python pumps. A wide-strapped round-neck tank top and carrot pants in light colors and natural materials also work beautifully, worn with Vanessa Wu slingback sandals.
Legs are on show! An absolute must: a straight skirt or midi skirt that falls just above the knee. No more, no less. Combine with a short-sleeved polo shirt or sleeveless shirt. Amal Clooney, undisputed queen of summer office chic, knows how to stay cool and smart in the city, despite the rising temperatures that beat down on the streets. She opts for an A-line dress that flatters the figure and exudes elegance. Teamed with a pair of silver Vanessa Wu pumps, you’ll be sure to bring a cool attitude to your July outfit.
Liberated and free! The office is empty; your colleagues have left. But don’t go thinking that you’re the Snow Queen who’s just rocked up on the beach in Cap D’Agde. A little decorum please! Flip-flops, low necklines and denim miniskirts are most definitely banned. Keep it chic instead with a suit jacket and loose-fit shorts, darted mid-thigh, which can be worn with dad shoes or flat Vanessa Wu sandals. Or you can play it even cooler with a colorful pleated long skirt, message T-shirt and white Vanessa Wu sneakers.
