Not sure what to wear to the office this summer? Check out some cute looks from the ladies of Fab Four that just might inspire you!
Sun is shining, the weather is sweet… and as much as we’d all rather be moving our dancing feet, some of us gotta go to work! Thankfully, this season allows us to do so in style.
Summer to me is synonymous with color, color and more color. That’s why I had to work this skirt into my office chic look. I have made full use of it for play time but now it’s just what I needed to werk it at work. The scuba material gives this pencil skirt the best fit.
To remain sexy and cool, I paired my skirt with a lace top. To wear lace at work or not to wear lace at work, that is the question! It all depends on your work environment. Mine is not the most conservative, but nonetheless, I always make sure that I wear it with a tank top that provides full coverage. The goal is always to look professional and classy while being comfortably you. Just rock whatever outfit will make you walk tall like you own the joint (even if you don’t actually own it… yet!).
Since it’s summertime, I try to wear pieces that can easily take me from the boardroom to the bar. So swap your pumps for some lace up sandals, add some bling around your neck and enjoy that cocktail!
It’s 7:30 AM, it’s already 25 degrees out and you’re getting ready to head out to the office, but first, you gotta figure out what to wear! This task can be daunting, especially when you can’t just throw on shorts and a tee. My solution to the summer heat + work outfit dilemma is the flared skirt.
For me, a flared skirt equals great ventilation!lol I need the air to flow around me to keep me cool and I love that feeling of freedom (no pants restricting my movements.
This look was super-dooper simple. I went for a tone on tone mix rocking this purple pleather, sleevless top and a mauve flared midi skirt. The shoes I kept neutral and then threw on some cool accessories to jazz things up a little. This look also transitions extremely well into an after work happy hour event or a nice dinner out!
So bring on the heat, cause I got it beat baby!
As the temperature rises, maintaining that polished professional look can sometimes leave you wondering what to wear to work. As you make your way to the office, it might be humid and sticky but once you arrive it’s as though you’ve been dropped in a freezer because the air conditioning is cranked all the way up to Antarctica temperatures! To combat these two extreme scenarios I make sure to have layering pieces in my wardrobe.
For this summer office chic look I went with this 3/4 length jacket to guard me against the frigid ac temp. Although this jacket is a feminine pink colour, it’s very tailored and sleek.
I then paired my jacket with this cotton (read breathable) dusty rose coloured tank and a cream coloured pencil skirt. Both of these pieces work to keep me looking business chic but cool and comfy for those commutes to and from work via public transit.
To complete my look I added blushed coloured pumps (worn only at the office and NOT durig my commute as I wouldn’t survive LOL) and the tote purse to hold all my much needed items. And voila, summer office chic at its best!

The office chic look is right up my alley. When summer comes around I’m ready to show up to show off. For me an office chic look is when classic professional meets stylish fashionista. Some of my favorite office looks are dresses, pants and printed shirts. Having these essential items can easily allow you to transition from a day at the office to happy hour. Let me introduce you to my office chic look.
For this look I went for my 3/4 olive high-waisted pants from ASOS . These pants are perfection, love how they hug my body. A high waist is just what I need to show off my hourglass figure. I don’t have to deal with the usual gap at the back when I sit, and the built in belt is just perfect. I have been looking for pants like this for a very long time so when I saw them online I couldn’t resist buying them, and I’m hopeful they’ll come out in many colors so I can purchase them all!
Since we can now finally enjoy the nice weather, I decided to wear my high waist pants with a sleeveless high collar shirt. This shirt goes well with almost anything and I can easily put a sweater or simple jacket over it, and I’m good to go.
To complete my cute office chic look, I paired my outfit with leopard print pumps by Sam Edelman, and just like that I’m ready to handle business at work than enjoy a nice cocktail at a cute spot for happy hour.
Tah tah for now!
