This first outfit is comprised of a mixture of the softest, stretchiest, and silkiest fabrics out there right now. I paired a navy & white striped blazer in my favorite comfy fabric (ponte!) over a colored tee with just a hint of detail at the neckline. Tuck the tee into this season's most versatile navy pant and finish off with a simple metallic flat and coordinating bracelet. You'll be so comfortable that you won't even want to change once you get home from work!
This J. Crew ponte dress is the perfect base layer for this second outfit. It looks like a cream shell tucked into a black pencil skirt, but since it is all one piece, you don't have worry about coming untucked throughout the day. Pair with a short sleeve cardigan (or a black blazer for a more conservative office) and accessorize with just the basics. You'll be lounging around in so much stretch that you'll forget how polished you look until you walk by a mirror!
I love a nude pump or wedge for the office in the summertime. It feels lighter and cooler than basic black, doesn't push the envelope- the only statement it makes is polished sophistication so you can shine through.
As the tag line of this blog says, I believe that you should love what you wear everyday. The best way to do that is to feel confident and comfortable in your clothes. Choosing fabrics that move easily can make the difference between an outfit that you are readjusting throughout the day and an outfit that you can put on and forget about (except when you are getting compliments). Incorporate some polished stretch into your work wear and enjoy your most comfortable summer yet!
