Summer is officially here, and the heat is on us. If you are having a hard time finding cute work clothes, all while staying appropriate for the office, take a look at a few of my summer picks!

I happen to live in one of the hottest cities in Southern California, and work in an office setting, so finding outfits that are stylish, fresh, and still professional looking can be a challenge.

Summer can be a great time to play with color. Many of us still haven’t gotten our summer glow, so adding vibrant colors to our wardrobe is a nice way of balancing out any color you may be missing from the cooler seasons.

 

Dresses are always a great option. Clothes that are lightweight and easy to move around in will make you feel less constrained. It’s nice to have some mobility in your outfits for a more relaxed and cool feel.  Dresses give us girls nice ventilation and still perfectly appropriate for the office.

 

What type of outfits do you wear for summer? And what are your tips for staying office chic?
