How to Keep Your Summer Work Wardrobe Cool yet Professional

As the June temperatures heat up, many offices allow employees to dress-down for the summer. After all, nobody wants to wear a suit in ninety-degree weather. However, I was raised with the notion to “Dress for the job you want”… aka look professional and put together, despite what other employees are wearing.

Here are my three rules for your summer work wardrobe:

1.       If the office allows you to wear jeans, make sure they are a dark wash. Light wash or faded jeans are unprofessional and should be saved for the weekend. Also, pair your jeans with heels or cute wedges.

2.       If the temperature is so hot that you need to wear your hair up to prevent it from sticking to the back of your neck, be sure that your outfit is professional enough to offset the casual hair-do.

3.       Never wear flip flops… Sandals are ok but if they are made of rubber, keep them at home.

Check out some of these items to help you compile a summer work wardrobe for the office that will keep you comfortable in the scorching heat, yet professional in the office.

White Jeans before Memorial Day: Do or Don’t?

We’ve all been there… That beautiful, crisp spring day when all you want is to pull your white jeans out of the back of your closet. You pause, as you hear "But it’s not Memorial Day yet" echoing in the back of your head. If my mom taught me anything about fashion, it’s to never wear white before that fateful Monday at the end of May. What’s a girl to do?

White jeans before Memorial Day: Do or Don’t?

For me, white jeans are a close second to sundresses as my favorite wardrobe essential for spring and summer. I follow the weatherman, not the calendar, to tell me when I can wear white. The unspoken rule of avoiding white before Memorial Day seems out of date. It’s something my mother followed growing up, but our generation is breaking the chain.

Check out my favorite white jeans and shoe combinations for the upcoming season! From loafers, to colored flats, or brown wedges, white jeans can take you to any spring or summer occasion.

Design Darling’s Top 5 Spring Suggestions

We’re excited to feature our stylish friend Mackenzie and her recommendations for new trends in the upcoming weeks! Please check out her blog at: http://www.mackenziehoran.com/ Enjoy!
 
I’m Mackenzie from Design Darling and I’m excited to be sharing my top five trends for spring and summer. 
 
1. The first trend I’m loving is flared jeans. I’ll always love my skinnies, but the flared leg is a fun, fresh alternative that I can’t wait to incorporate into my wardrobe this season.

2. Color blocking is nothing new in the fashion world but it’s definitely sticking around for another season. Whether you’re pairing opposites on the color wheel or two hues in the same family, you’ll be right on trend!

3. A third trend to embrace this season? Cat eye sunglasses. It’s a universally flattering shape that’s a retro update to last year’s wayfarer make.

4. Maxi dresses and skirts are another silhouette to try out this season. I’m loving these options paired with a plain white t-shirt and fun accessories.

5. Last but not least, I love the way these 70s-inspired wood platforms would elongate my 5’1” frame. Blair in the first picture rocks two trends at once!
