Summer office outfits 2

How to dress at the office in summer?

Hello Mesdames,

It is june and summer is coming!

(Well actually in Paris, it is raining and I am freezing cold, but let’s pretend it’s hot).

Summer is great, we all agree on that, but we also all wish that we were sunbathing on the beach rather than beeing stuck in our sticky hot office, right?

Plus, one of the big problem of this situation is to manage to dress well without beeing uncomfortable. Which is especially an issues here in Paris where only a few offices have air conditioning.

Of course, our offices do not all have the same “rules”: while some women have to respect a very strict dresscode, other lucky gals can do pretty much whatever they want.

But each of us should  follow some basic rules that will maintain their “office credibility” in all circumstances:

– Do not be too sexy: bodycon outfit, low cleavage, mini skirts, and pin-up make-up are to be avoided

– Do not be too sloppy: ripped jeans, working out pants, peeled of nailpolish and shoes in poor condition are always bad options

Put – at least a bit – your personal style into your outfit: it’s not because there is a dresscode that we all have to look like clones!

Let’s get you inspired with some outfits I created for all kind of offices and of women.

1. You work at a buisness attire office

Everyone around you wears blouses and tailored items and men all suit up.

With such a dresscode, lots of women go for grey, black and white and dream of the day they’ll be wearing all the rainbow colors they wish.

If you are in this situation, remember that those colors do not always look dull and that they are lots of ways to spice them up!

You can for instance inspire from men who put all the fun in the tie and prints. Do the same and add some interesting details to your classic outfit.

If you want to pull out more colors, it’s also fine: just stay on the chic side with classic and classy cuts.

And remember that good fabrics are a must when you have this kind of dresscode.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which
    too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

      You can find it on Etsy here.
      It’s a girl who creates her own custom blend nailpolishes (how cool is that).
      To find where the product I feature on my sets come from, just click on it, it will bring you on my polyvore set, then click on the product again and boom, here you are, ready to purchase 🙂

  4. l’article tombe bien, j’avais besoin d’une bonne dose d’inspiration pour shopper des tenues de travail 🙂
