How to Keep Cool in the Office

August 7th, 2017 at 2:00am

As summer progresses, the days get sunnier and the temperatures get hotter. What almost always goes hand-in-hand with this process is the struggle to figure out what to wear to your internship or job when the temperature is pushing upwards of 90 degrees.

You know you can’t go for the cute spaghetti strap dress and sandals like you want to, but you don’t want to sweat through your thought-out outfit five seconds after walking outside. So, what do you do?

You buy a jumpsuit, of course.

This Fashionista is the perfect example of how to keep yourself cool while still looking cool for work. Her look is the perfect amount of trendy, classy, cool, and seasonal. When you look at her outfit, it’s far from the skimpy looks most people have in mind when they think of summer clothing.

The jumpsuit is incredibly flattering and the chambray can be paired with any and everything. She chose to pair it with a tan Tory Burch crossbody, as well as some tan slides and gold hoops. All come together to form a neutral summer look, without being boring.

Having the pants of the jumpsuit fall just above the ankle not only keeps her cool but keeps her on-trend with the cropped hemline. Since the straps of the jumpsuit are a little thicker, this makes it a perfect choice for the office. Not to mention you can stay cool while lunching in the park, but can still throw on a cute sweater or jacket when you re-enter the frozen tundra that is an office space in the summertime.

One of the best parts about this office-friendly look is how versatile it is. You can take it from office to brunch, from summer to winter all with the addition or subtraction of a few key accessories. Plus, it requires little to no effort to pull this look together in the morning when you’re trying to remember your keys, coffee, purse, and lunch, all while attempting to put together a great outfit.

A nine-to-five may be draining sometimes, but don’t let picking out your outfit be a part of that. Keep it simple and always remember there’s a way to stay cute and classy without roasting in the New York summer heat.
