There's no easier time to fall into a boring office look routine than Summer, because who wants to be at work when the sun's out anyway, right? But since vacations can't last forever and work has to be done even when there are popsicles to be had, here's the irony: a sassy polished outfit will actually make you feel so much better (fashion has that power, remember?), especially on long days at the office. So if there's one season to pay extra attention to your office look, it's right now! And the really good news is that I got you covered, because getting my favourite Summer office look only takes 3 simple steps - back-to-business and who-run-the-world attitude included!
1 / STRUCTURED IS NOT BORING
You know how you just get so much more done at a clean & organised desk? Well, in the same sense structured pieces make for the best office outfits! Opting for a sleeveless top with a plunged neckline and cropped trousers only makes sense on hot Summer days, and the only thing it takes to make those features office-appropriate is a structured cut and thick fabric. Done & done!
2 / BLACK & WHITE IS A WINNER
There's nothing as sophisticated as a good old black-&-white combo, especially if the texture of the fabric adds a little something to it (such as with this By Malene Birger top and trousers!). So to keep things interesting, don't forget to pay extra attention to the texture of your pieces, forever & always.
3 / ADD SOME REMEMBER ME-ACCESSORIES
If you want to stand out in a subtle way (and that's exactly what you want at the office), spice up your outfit with some offbeat accessories: a chunky golden necklace, embellished bag or black fluffy slides separate you from the crowd and - together with your genius brain, of course - will get you any deal you want, no sweat involved.
