Add a blazer for a professional and warmer look
It is so hard to predict the weather this time of year. There are days that are very warm and days that are not so warm. For the past couple of days I’ve awoken to fog and cool weather that eventually turns sunny. Unfortunately I didn’t figure in the wind chill factor and after going outside I realized it’s quite windy and I need a scarf. Today is another foggy morning, so what’s a girl to do?
Having to adjust our wardrobe for bizarre weather patterns is really a spring turning into summer weather thing. There are a lot of people who work in offices that are blasting the AC especially when it’s hot and sunny outside, so they know what I mean. We also experience a lot of warm beautiful days and breezy chilly nights. These two scenarios can make dressing tricky. May I make a few suggestions?
The white suit is a great summer option, just add a pop of color
First, wear layers. In the office you can look totally polished with a silk print sheath dress with a tailored blazer and structured handbag. If your handbag is large enough you might even be able to slip in a cardigan sweater for a more casual look. You can also still look summery and professional with white slacks, white tank and flats. Just add a pop of color with a cardigan sweater to ward off the chill.
For those occasionally cool evenings try covering your arms and legs. Pull on cotton pants are cozy and cover. Add a long sleeved shirt over a tank and you’re ready to go. A silk scarf tied to your handbag can be used later if the weather gets cooler. A maxi dress is also a good option. Add a cropped denim jacket to keep the look casual and to cover up if you’re feeling cold. Nothing makes date night miserable faster than sitting on an outdoor patio shivering. While our weather is stabilizing, keep a sweater handy, it might save the day.
