It’s Sundress Season! Ways To Wear Your Favorite Flowy Dresses Even To Work
Summer is finally here, and with it comes the sundress season. Nothing makes me feel as feminine, pretty, and confident as a sundress does. So why not wear them to work as well? Why should we limit ourselves to only wearing these gorgeous dresses on the weekends? With a little creativity and some styling tricks, you can wear your favorite sundresses to work too! It’s just important to know how.
Blazer up this sundress season
Nothing will make a sundress more office-friendly than a blazer. Simply add a structured blazer in a neutral color on top of your dress, and you’re good to go. This will not only add a touch of professionalism to your outfit but also keep you warm in an overly air-conditioned workplace. If you want to go all out, you can even opt for a blazer in a bright color. Match the color to the pattern of your dress, but make sure to stick to solid-color blazers. Patterned blazers on top of a colorful dress could be a bit too much, especially for work.
Choose the right accessories
Another important thing when it comes to making your sundress look appropriate for work is choosing the right accessories. The type of accessories you choose will depend on the environment you work in and your personal style. If you’re someone who loves statement jewelry, like bold earrings or a colorful scared, make sure you choose just one or two pieces and don’t go overboard. If you like to keep things simple, you can choose delicate jewelry and add some structure to your look with the help of a belt or a colorful structured bag.
The art of layering this sundress season
If your sundress is on the shorter side or has thin straps, layering is the key to making it work-appropriate. This is where blazers come into place once again. However, blazers aren’t the only layering option. You can also layer with blouses, shirts, or cardigans.
The type of layering you can do also depends on the temperatures in your office. If you’re planning to go out for drinks after work, or just run some errands, make sure you opt for something light that you can fit in your bag once you get off of work to truly enjoy this sundress season.
Fabric is important
One of the most important things in making a sundress work appropriate is picking a dress in the right fabric. Not all fabrics will work for the office. For example, see-through fabrics like tulle won’t give you enough coverage and could be a bit overboard. Opt for a breathable fabric such as organic cotton that will keep you both cool and professional. Additionally, look for dresses with higher necklines or longer hemlines to ensure that you are not revealing too much skin.
Wearing a monochromatic outfit is an easy way to make a sundress look more polished and professional. Opt for a solid-colored dress and pair it with shoes and accessories in the same color family. This creates a cohesive and sophisticated look that is perfect for most workplaces. You can also experiment with different shades of the same color to add some. If you want to stay true to the summer theme, opt for bright and trendy colors such as Barbiecore pink or bright orange for the ultimate look this sundress season.
