With the promise of warmer temps, most professional women face the conundrum of staying cool while looking appropriate for their respective office culture.

Although your office may have designated a day for casual dress, it’s important to steer clear of dress code violations when the weather warms up.

Take a look at our office-appropriate selections for braving the spring-like climate with style and professionalism.

The Dress

Sundresses are the most comfortable items we own and the most common summer staple. They’re cool, flattering and depending on the style, work-appropriate. Instead of a deep plunge, opt for a dress with a pin-tucked neckline. A wrap dress is another option for staying cool, comfy and work-appropriate. Pair both with heels or wedges and cinch the waist with a colorful belt.

The Shoe

Flip Flops are for the beach. Not only do they look unprofessional but the sound of you “flopping” around the office is enough to drive some nuts. Go for strappy sandals, espadrilles or ballet flats instead.

The Suit

Mix up your power suit this summer with lighter colors. Instead of the jacket, match a bold-colored cardigan with a tan pencil skirt or pair your slacks with a lightweight blouse.

What is your go-to outfit for spring days at work? What is the biggest faux-paux in an office environment?
