As evidenced by the beautiful weather this past week, things are heating up in DC! It’s hard to believe it’s nearly June 20, the first day of summer. The challenge – how to stay cool, stylish and professional.
So, I put my personal stylist hat on for you.
Here are three key summer wardrobe updates sure to mix in easily with the garments currently in your closet:
1. Lightweight Neutral Jacket – Linen or cotton do the job well. But if you are a purist – then a lightweight summer wool works too.
2. Fresh Day To Night Dress – Dip out at lunch or take advantage of balmy summer nights- a fresh sleeveless dress is the perfect go to. Cover with your lightweight blazer for business. If you typically feel sticky in fitted sheaths try fit and flair style dresses to permit more refreshing air to circulate.
3. White Pumps – bring your look straight into summer – need I say more?
These items provide instant summer cool and professional style for any women in leadership, while making your desk-to dinner life a breeze:
Readers, women seem to feel strongly one way or the other about linen for work- they either love it or hate it. How about you? Are you camp “linen” or camp “no linen”? Weigh in!
