Summertime is the best time to switch up the work outfits for more beige, pink, white, teals and yellow of the season. What you might not be able to wear in the winter – ie: white pants, bright pastels and sandals – are totally appropriate for summer and even celebrated.
This work outfit is vibrant for so many different reasons. First, it’s very classic and professional in it’s construction with a well-fitted pencil skirt, a modest camisole and blazer, all combined with a lower, easy-wear heel. Yet, the colors are not the typical work colors you’d find like black, navy, grey, berry, etc. These colors are lighter, airy and totally workplace appropriate.
This blazer is a close comparison to the color of oatmeal, which is a rare find period. Yet the color isn’t dull in the least, it’s just subdued. This blazer is an easy-wear, comfort item with less structure than a typical blazer for comfort. The wool material is very breathable and flexible, which will make it a piece that you love to wear and matches alot of summer colors.
Finding good camisoles to wear under collared shirts or blazers can take a little bit of time. I love this little camisole that also comes in black and a wonderful berry red. It’s classy adding a nice sheen to any outfit, but it’s also modest and very much a professional workwear wardrobe find. This camisole compliments the blazer and skirt well and is very versatile for wear in other outfits too.
Sequined Floral Skirt
What a gorgeous skirt. This skirt adds just enough pizzazz to the outfit, but isn’t too overpowering with the lighter colors. The florals are constructed with sequins to create color but even moreso, texture. This makes the outfit stand out as interesting, even with a more subdued pastel color palette.
A lower heels is great for work because it keeps you comfortable throughout the day. These heels come in both beige and taupe, making them a great addition to this outfit. They fit in seamlessly and won’t distract the eye from the skirt and blazer. The open toe sandal is also a nice addition for summertime.
COACH always makes an exceptional purse and this work satchel is no exception. In a dark purple, this purse will really stand out with this outfit. It’s the bold accessory that will get noticed.
Often with jewelry, you can go one of two ways. You can go bold or simple. Gold hoops are a staple jewelry item that never fail to look classy but are so very simple. This outfit has enough texture, color and interest enough that simple gold hoops are the perfect addition for the ears.
