We’ve got that summertime gladness, and we’re getting ready to gear up and say “hello, sunshine!” But as we’ve come to learn, that also usually means saying hello to freezing offices, surprise thunderstorms, and unplanned post-work to-do’s! You’re going to need to incorporate some essential separates into your summer wardrobe in order to be ready for anything.
Hot Day / Cold Night
Temps can drop dramatically after sunset, so be prepared with stylish separates that can deftly transition from heat to chilliness. A lightweight jacket is a summer layering staple. Throw it on over a flirty jumpsuit or classic sundress, or drape it over your shoulders… not just for warmth, but for that cool factor, too.
Desk to Dinner (Al Fresco)
You’ve worked hard all day and longingly watched as the sunshine made eyes at you from your office window, beckoning you to come hither. Finally, you’re free! Time for an impromptu date or friend meetup at the local dining spot with the best patio in town. Go from air conditioning to fresh air by tossing that work-friendly cardigan and those socks into your tote bag, and give your shoulders and feet a little freedom.
Rain?! On the Weekend?!
It’s the weekend. You’re out and about and looking cute in denim shorts and a summery top. But wait, was that a drop you just felt?! Don’t let a little rain ruin your day. Be prepared with a fun and cheerful raincoat and boots that look no matter what the forecast calls for. Carry them around in a handy bag just in case.
