Warm Weather Wardrobe Essentials: Work

Warm weather often lends itself to more casual clothing options, but for work, this is not always appropriate. And let’s not forget how cold the office can be! We’ve picked some summer staples that will be perfect for work this season – and for years to come.
Check back tomorrow for our after 5 warm weather picks, and Thursday for our favorite casual pieces. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

There are so many things that we admire about this dress. The asymmetrical seam and pleat detail beautifully accentuates the waist without being overly fitted. And sometimes we are just more comfortable covering our arms, aren’t we? This dress does it with style. In a refined wool, it easily works for 3 seasons. Add a chunky bracelet and earring to go from day-to-night in a flash!

A wrap dress from DVF is always right, and this one is no exception. The fuller printed skirt works for all body types. If you’re worried about coverage, just add a simple tank or camisole to peak out. This exact style can be pre-ordered from Saks Fifth Avenue by clicking through with the "shop it" button. And we highly recommend doing it - this silhouette has been selling out everywhere, especially with the solid black top, which easily transitions to fall.

This deep navy blue sheath is a classic that you will wear year after year. The silhouette flatters with seams in just the right places. Wear it on it’s own, or pair it with…well, anything! If you like some color, add truly any color scarf, chunky necklace, or cardigan will work. A nude pump or a metallic sandal…you name it, it works with this piece!

We love tweed for the office, and Elie Tahari has smartly turned it into a print on this lightweight fabric for Summer. The higher square neck and easy shift dress silhouette is also very office appropriate, while the exposed back zip detail infuses just a little bit of edge! Wear it with any black shoe – pump, peep toe, ballet flat.

The classic versatility of this dress makes it a no-brainer to add to your wardrobe– choose from a ton of colors. In a cotton fabric, with just a bit of stretch (so forgiving!), this is a great style for the office. The notch detail at the neckline creates pretty interest, while the seaming down the bodice and across the waist flatters the body – feel free to add a skinny belt, too. You don’t need anything else. A great pump or peep-toe completes the look.

Alice + Olivia’s line began with a focus on pants, and grew based on the success of it’s fit. This one is no exception. There are so many things to love about this pair: 1. The wide waistband creates a comfortable fit that doesn’t give you dreaded "muffin top". 2. It’s made of a jersey fabric in a perfect, season-less weight. They are so comfortable you will forget how polished they look.

Theory always does a great job with classic - yet contemporary - pieces for the office. And these cropped pants are a great example. The slim leg gives them versatility, so they can be worn with the coordinating blazer or with just a classic button down. If you’re looking for something fresh and new, the denim color is beautiful.

This classic fit is universally flattering and an effortless pick for a polished work look. Lighter colors are lined, which we love, and the size offering can’t be beat – tall, short, plus-size – you’ll want more than one. For a complete suit, pair it with Lafayette 148’s classic Gabriella Jacket or this updated single-button style with a stylish notch collar.

Do you have a black pencil skirt in a year round material? If not, this is the one to get. Jersey fabric gives some stretch so it will be comfortable, while looking good, all day. We love the concealed zip pockets – perfect to slip in your id, or Starbucks card for a quick run.

This tweed open front jacket has the polish of a blazer with the comfort of a cardigan – and it’s just as versatile. Because it’s a shorter length, it will be just as flattering over a sheath dress as it will be with a pair of trousers or jeans. We like wearing it open to really show off the frayed edging.
