Office Blush

All white looks tend to come into fashion this time of year, and there were lots of those white-out looks on runways for spring, but all white should be avoided for most workplaces. So instead, we say go to the new neutral for your fresh summer palette and opt for blush as your go-to hue. In this look, Givenchy shows just how covering up is sophisticated and sexy (but not too sexy) but keeping the floaty blush blouse buttoned up and allowing the gams to be the only skin exposed.

Get It, Spend Less

We’ve found pieces you can afford and mix into your current wardrobe, or wear all at once like the runway inspiration. Make sure trouser shorts are conservative enough that you can comfortable move at work and that they aren’t too short or tight. These Topshop ones are just the right length and silhouette for the office. A collared nude blouse like our Dion Lee one will keep you cool under the French Connection blazer, and you can hit the patio after work for cocktails in the sleeveless blouse, shorts and sweet ankle strap heels like these Vince Camuto ones. It’s the perfect transitional summer outfit!
