15 Staples You Need In Your Work Wardrobe



Summer is literally just around the corner, and I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe is in need of some serious updating.

It’s time to put away the comfy sweaters and say goodbye to your beloved furs because the hotter months are finally here. But with this, comes stress! Because usually, I find it incredibly difficult with the intense heat to construct an outfit that is office appropriate!!

On those hot stuffy days in the office, it’s important to wear something that keeps you cool but still makes you look like you’re serious about your job. You can’t exactly walk in wearing your beach attire!

But if there’s one secret to pulling off your chic, appropriate summer wear that’s suitable for the office, it’s keeping it simple. Let your accessories do the talking for you and don’t go for clothes that are too loud or jazzy. Simplicity is your new best friend, think pastel colors, minimalism and of course, stripes.

So stress no more on what to wear, because I’ve got your back – check out my favs so far below and see what I’ll be wearing to the office this upcoming season:
