May 23, 2019

Shirt Dresses

A shirt dress is one of the most comfortable and stylish things you can wear to the office or out on the town. This no-hassle outfit idea is easy to dress up or dress down, so you can make it work for your office according to the dress code. Check out Zara or Gap for spring and summer tunics and shirt dresses.

Loose Fabrics

Dressing for the office can be a hassle -- especially when summer temperatures soar. Choosing loose fabrics can be the perfect solution for keeping cool, while also looking professional. Linen is a great choice for summer. It's low maintenance and is probably the only acceptable fabric to wear when wrinkled. Pair a loose linen shirt with capri dress pants and dress your outfit up or down with a pair or heels or ballet flats. You can also choose natural and breathable fabrics, like cotton and rayon, to keep you cool. Pair a cotton blouse with a wide leg dress pant for a super comfortable, yet professional, look.

Pencil Skirts

Pencil skirts are a wardrobe must-have. Not only are they versatile, but they always make an outfit look more polished. The best part is that they come in all colours, fabrics and styles – from form-fitting with slits to more forgiving fabrics with ruffles and prints. You can pair them with anything including a turtleneck, blouse or a simple t-shirt. Be sure to check out Le Chateau and H&M for some of the latest and greatest affordable styles.

High Waisted Pants

High waisted pants can be flattering and professional looking, and they will never go out of style! If you haven’t added a pair or two to your office wardrobe selection, it’s time to do so. If you like the fitted high-waisted look, pick a loose or fitted shirt and top it off with a nice blazer or a long jacket. Another option is to choose a loose fitting pant, which works with any top and with every body shape.

Layers

By layering your outfits, you can add a lot of variety to your style. The key is to pick lightweight fabrics that don’t end up looking bulky when you add a few layers. Another tip is to incorporate shades of the same colour -- which works really well for this particular style. Some looks to try might include a camisole with a blazer and high-waisted pants, a summer dress with a blazer, or a tunic with leggings.

Timbercreek Communities hopes these fashion ideas help you find the perfect outfit for the office. These are just a few tips on how you can show off your personal style while still looking professional.
