With temperatures going up, the last thing I’ll want to reach for are pants when going to work. Instead, it’s about this time that I’ll start wearing dresses on heavy rotation. But one thing to keep in mind is keep dresses work appropriate. I usually stay away from anything that’s not short sleeve or longer but that’s not always easy. So, I’ll usually opt for a lightweight cardigan or a blazer to keep things more professional. Then, when I step outside I can easily discard the outer layer and still keep cool.
For this stripe dress, I added a cute gold bow belt to highlight the waist, added a navy blazer, and paired it with black bow heels for the perfect work outfit. I can easily turn this day look into a nighttime look by getting rid of the blazer and belt, and add some cute earringss and a clutch.
