Dressing for work can (and should!) be fun, but combine the need to look professional with the heat of the summer and things can get challenging. I’ve found that incorporating staples, like a blazer or pretty blouse, with trendier pieces sets an appropriate tone for the workplace while adding seasonal character. Whether your day is scheduled with meetings or you’re jetting off for a conference, these four looks will help you feel both confident and fresh.
When you’re pitching ideas or creating a game plan, it’s important that you feel like yourself. If you’re stuck in a bland outfit or if you feel too buttoned-up it will be harder to express the ideas you’re passionate about. For a collaborative setting, opt for something that shows off your personality, like this stunning floral dress and statement cuff.

Many people find that dressing for an interview is quite a tricky task. You certainly want to look polished, but try not to overthink it. For summer interviews, match a classic blazer with a subtly patterned blouse, wide-legged trousers, and heels. You’ll walk in and out of the interview feeling powerful—which is sure to leave a lasting impression.
