Work Wardrobe for the Summer Heat

May 26, 2008

I’ve already spent a good amount of my graduation money on additions to my work wardrobe. But why not? Many of the items can be mixed with other things in my closet to create going out looks or looks for nice occasions without looking too “office.” I recently bought two high-waisted skirts from Express. One in a khaki color along with a matching short sleeved suit top, and another in a heather grey which can be worn year round. Mary Kate Olsen recently rocked out the casual high waisted skirt look on the red carpet. They can be dressed down

 with plain shirts and simple or bold accessories. For work, I bought this striped, short sleeve button down shirt with ruffle detail from This shirt comes in a variety of colors as well as polka dot prints and is also cute with a pair of black dress shorts for a night out.

Lastly, there is nothing better than a cute pair of white pants after Memorial Day. These Ralph Lauren Pants from Nordstrom are fitted on top and wide on the bottom. They can help you transition into the wide leg fit that will be taking over in fall!
