3 Office Outfits For Summer With Clothes You Already Have!

Sometimes you love to dress up, and lay out your office outfits for summer 3 days in advance, but sometimes you just can’t be bothered. It’s fine. I mean somewhere between not falling asleep fast enough on Sunday, and that Monday blues and never-enough-coffees who gives a shite about fashion anyway? What to wear suddenly sounds like the most idiotic question ever.

“Like, seriously, you should be so lucky I actually bothered to put on pants today. Ugh.’ #thoughts

Shocking as this may sound, eves us – fashion gurus and style stalkers get tired once in a while, and feel no jazz whatsoever when it comes to our office outfits for summer, let alone shop for them. Best case scenario we could use a style assistant. Or rewind a few years back to kindergarten and first grades and we’ll take whatever our moms laid out for us. Ahhhh! Worst case scenario, open your closet, stretch out your hand, hand touches clothes, pick one, or more, put in on, and hope for the best.

It’s called dressing up as an adult.

Therefore, all you need is pants, skirts, basic tops, and dresses. To jazz it up throw in a polished big bag, a pair of sunglasses and some gold jewellery.

1.PANTS: office outfits for summer.

A bottom style, alongside the skirt that is required in public, hence in office situations. Whether they’re the most plain boring pair of pants in the world, or bight and printed in funky styles, culottes, long, cigarette, dressy, stretchy, black, white, red – normally all pants (sans jeans) are office appropriate.

Easiest way to wear them: wear a plain white or black t-shirt (or a button down), a pair of simple heels (stilettos, block), sandals, ballet flats, a big massive tote bag, sunglasses and jewellery if you want.

TIP: go for high waist, not too tight.

2. SKIRTS: office outfits for summer.

Anything that’s around the knees (even above a few inches) is usually great for office outfits for summer. Pencil skirts tend to look more professional, but summer is the perfect season to wear more causal skirt styles, pleated skirts, flirty, floral, midi, even denim (midi length).

Pair them with a simple top: t-shirt, bodysuit, silky blouse, blazer, flats, heels, even sneakers if the code permits.

TIP: flirty pretty skirts look best for office in monochromatic outfits and flats. Very summer’ish. Pencil styles work better with any type of heel.

3. DRESSES: office outfits for summer

There’s no way around this: dresses are the easiest things to wear. You need one item + shoes + bag and you’re ready. From super dressy pencil cut dresses to more tea-inspired, flirty styles  – the dresses you can wear to office in summer are infinite. As long as the length is decent, and the fabric is not see-through, you can literally go for anything: shirt dresses, tea-dresses, tight and fitted, boxy, flirty.

TIP: avoid spaghetti straps and too short hemlines and you’re safe.

Hope this was helpful! 🙂 xoxo

Office Shoes: Can We Actually Wear Slippers (Slides) To Work?

Who’s with me on this one? Okay, truth be told I go back and forth between slaying in stiletto heels as high as my ego, and wearing flip-flops with a power suit? Btw, can I do that? By the looks of fashion for the past 3 years we kinda can do whatever the hell we want, with a slight business etiquette and office-attire-attention in mind. So, in office shoes land – theoretically we can wear slippers to work.

Work attire has to be appropriate, slightly formal, smart, clean, you can go for edgy, comfy, chic, sophisticated, basic, super business, or super laid back depending on your job.

Nevertheless a great office look will always be all the above with a little bit of ‘you’ in there as well.

Some women love to strut in heels. They feel empowered by the sexy strong shoes, yet even the biggest heel strutters out there get sneakers days or flip-flop cravings on a Monday. Especially in summer, when walking in heels under the sun is no fun. It’s on such hot lazy days, when all you can think about is lying on the beach with your feet soaking in the sea, that you’d wish you could go barefoot to work.

The bad news is you can’t. The good news is you can do the next best thing: wear slippers slides to work. No eye-roll please, it’s as good as you’ll ever get to flip-flops.

What exactly are slippers slides? 

Remember the Birkenstocks from a few years back. Yeah. Those are one slides style: casual, ugly but kinda cool. They’re okay for office if you pick a more polished version of the shoe, and you style it with a minimal smart outfit, such as a version of the power suit for example, or a smart shirt dress.

You know the mules, the 90s square heel shoes? Yeah. That’s another version of the slides sans the heels. They’re polished, chic, very sleek and they do look very work appropriate with an office outfit.

Oxford shoes, brogues, ballet flats with an open heel/foot backside are all versions of the slides.

Fur slides… remember we talked those here? You could wear those to work, if the job description allows and the fur is not too fluffy.

The classic slides – Adidas, Nike – that were the ’80’s beach attire, are now every-day’ish appropriate with anything from bikinis to a power suit. Yeah-eah!

*

How can we wear slippers slides to work?

With today’s fashion turning so much to athleisure, laid back vibes, and fun pieces it really feels as if we’re all a bit more relaxed about what we wear, and we do tend to experiment more with clothes. Without ever losing her penchant for luxe and sophistication fashion is giving us that premise. It’s like she says: “okay you wanna wear flip-flips to work AND still be taken seriously? Fine. Here they are.” 

Slides for work come a dime a dozen. They can be the polished sleek and minimal version of the slippers, or they can be so embellished and opulent and luxe as if they’re having a whole party at your feet.

The key to wearing slides to work and actually getting away with it is to always pick a pair that works well with your outfit and it doesn’t look too laid back, too holiday-vibe.

If all else fails but you still wanna do it, try this: monochromatic look (all black or all white), black patent slides (Birkenstocks inspired, or even classic mules inspired), minimal tote bag, and a pair of sunglasses. Shut the front door.

Which are the *right* slides to wear to work?

Simple, sleek, polished, black, white. If you asked me these are the keys and the clues you need to look out for. With this in mind I’ve picked my fave slides for you below.

How To Wear The Denim Skirt In 2017 Like A Grown-Up?

Somewhere between the 90’s and the 2000’s you broke hearts in this skirt. You wore it to high-school a la Beverly Hills 90210, to college a la Twin Peaks style, to parties a la Justin & Britney Denim Love Homage. That mini denim skirt was your best friend. the staple of a very grungy, slightly tacky closet. You wore it religiously and loved it. Then you grew up, and let me guess: you swore to never wear it again.

Big mistake. In fashion, as in life never say never. Fast forward over 10 years and who’s going denim skirt shopping? Who’s rocking a skimpy little denim skirt with a flirty shirt on Instagram? A-ha.

Ladies… it’s 2017 and the denim skirt is back and more sophisticated than ever, so there’s really no need for panic. We will not all look like versions of ourselves back in the day, only older, instead we’ll look older-in-a-good-way AKA grown-up with a style so on point and sophisticated you’ll wonder what the hell was wrong with us in the first pace, wearing that denim skirt in such a cheap and tacky way way back when.

Why it’s okay to wear the denim skirt in 2017 if you’re not a teen anymore?

The denim skirt today is so nipped and tucked in such a versatile and more polished way that it really can adapt to all ages and styles. Starting with last year most designs started to play around with denim and the skirt, so by 2017 we have amazing denim skirt pieces from Tommy Hilfiger, to Tom Ford, Miu Miu, Lutz Huelle, Oscar de la Renta, Yeezy, Dolce & Gabbana. Pretty much all designers took to denim and gave us collections packed or just sprinkled with some pretty fab and quite polished pieces.

I guess the world of fashion caught up with the reality out there: we’re not our moms and dads, so way in our 30s or 40s we do still want to play with looks and fashion, get adventurous but in a more grown-up way if you like. Hence today’s sartorially wider range of trends and ‘how-to’ looks.

How to wear the denim skirt in 2017?

You know how you wore it in high-school? Yeah. Do the opposite. These days the denim skirt is all grown-up and more sophisticated, paired with less casual pieces and never heels. Unless of course you are the master of your castle and know your style like nobody’s business. Therefore you can probably pull off anything regardless of its borderline cheapness.  #stripperheels

I AM JOKING. Never wear those.

Wear these instead:

  • button-down shirts
  • statement shirts
  • boyfriend t-shirts
  • peasant tops
  • crop tops
  • off-the-shoulder blouses
  • basic t-shirts
  • bodysuits
  • sweatshirts
  • slides
  • sneakers
  • flat sandals
  • espadrilles
  • Layer with oversized denim jackets, leather jackets, bomber jackets, trench-coats, dusters.

For an easier falling into this new-way-of-wearing-the-denim-skirt look into celebrity styles. Kendall Jenner the Hadids, Hailey Baldwin, Selena Gomez, Alexa Chung.

Shop for those denim skirts that are grown-up!

Let’s face it, you’re not getting any younger. So while you’re getting old, wrinkled and sophisticated apparently so is the denim skirt. At least the last bit. The 2017 denim skirt has a more casual loose fit, like the classic Levi’s if you will. It doesn’t sit too low on the hips, and it gets a more grown-up vibe when you tuck your top into it.

It can be mini, pencil cut, with front buttons, slightly ripped, with pockets, high waist, long – sky’s the limit. Although truth be told the comeback of the denim skirt kinda belongs to the mini version of it.

5 Outfit Ideas To Wear This Summer

Do you ever just get style stuck? I wonder is it just me or it’s a God given fact that when summer is in full weather custody I get so sartorially repetitive I can’t stand it. My summer outfits suffer and so does my fashion sense. Here to testify is only my latest Instagram post reviling the one summer outfit combo I can’t shake off if you paid me.

Yes it all sounds so vain, I’m aware, but it’s frustrating. And since all good things start with a list and a few drinks, I bring the list, you go get yourself a drink, enjoy this post, pin it, save it, screenshot it… for those days when you’re too lazy or just #OOTD un-inspired.

1.Summer Outfits: TEA DRESSES

What started off back in the ’50’s as home dresses evolved today into summer’s prettiest trend of them all. Tea dresses are usually mid-length, very casual but quite versatile so you could rock one to the beach or to dinner as well. They come in wild prints, bright colours, summer fabrics, wrap-dress designs, slits, spaghetti straps, cap sleeves, mini, long, midi, flirty, loose, more fitted. The sky is the limit. Tea dresses are summer’s biggest hit and a fave perk of the hot weather.

STYLE TIP:

Chose a printed tea dress in the most flattering colour ever, and style it with espadrilles and a tote bag for a very summer coastal vibe.

2. Summer Outfits: Slip Dresses

Okay, not a new fad, but certainly one I haven’t milked property and one that still gives me some 90s goosebumps. Fashion wise I think the slip dress is a staple. Period. Therefore, it only comes natural that we can style it a gazillion ways: slip dress over t-shirt, slip dress with sneakers, with sandals, with freaking flip flops if you want, silky slip dresses for evening, high slits, low cuts, naked backs. Lawd help us, it’s the dress of all dresses.  More so, you can layer it with jackets over, or tees and all sorts of fitted bras and bustiers underneath.

Contrary to its thin fragile frame and fabric it’s a solid piece for all year round outfits. Hello slip dresses with a high slit X thigh high boots.

STYLE TIP:

A red silky slip dress is the bomb this summer. pair it with white sneakers for a very cool eclectic style or stiletto sandals for an evening steamy situation.

3. Summer Minimalism

The older I’m getting the more I find what once used to be so boring, incredibly classy, luxe and sophisticated: minimal looks are my #1 challenge and coveted style. It’s hard. I used to wear rings on all fingers, and think that one chunky necklace was so minimal. These days I struggle to keep only 3 dainty rings on my fingers and wear just my gold medallion necklace. I must confess I sometimes find this minimal business boring af. Anyway, debate aside, minimal looks are classy, and they’re the best go-to outfits for office. The easiest trick to do summer minimalism is to basically do monochromatic looks. (or just 2 colours).

Something about an all white, or an all black look, with just a bag, a watch, and a pair of shades for accessories (okay maybe some well placed jewellery. one piece for the sake of ol times) – is the epitome of great office style. Shoes wise the good news is head-to-toe colours look amazing with heels as well as flats. Try some very sleek and polished ballet flats for example.

Summer time also means bright colours: reds, pinks, yellows. This season I have a thing for orange and yellow.

STYLE TIP:

Pair an all white look (white culottes X sleeveless white structured top) with just one piece of gold jewellery and a massive office bag in black, with as big as your head sunglasses and you will be running the world in no time.

4. POPLIN SHIRTS.

Some trends I love, some I chose to only pin, not wear. Why? Beats the hell outta me. When it comes to this year’s biggest top trend I think we can all agree the crown goes to the statement shirt aka the poplin shirt. It’s a nice little thing tbh: it has a great fabric which can make you look fat on fat days, and keep you sweatier on hot days, it has so many ruffles, and bows, and strings, and laces, and peplums, and big sleeves, and more bows, and more ruffles that Rihanna’s 2017 Met gala’s dress has got nothing on you. Oh, and everyone’s wearing one these days.

I love it on all these cool bloggers, and cool people out there, but I’ll pass for now. It’s too damn hot outside for piles of fabric hugging me. However, I will keep it in mind for autumn. Hopefully by then all the fashion victims will be bored with it.

STYLE TIP:

If you’re gonna wear one, go all the way, and pick it in baby blue, with peplum, ruffles, big sleeves, a wrap-like design, maybe some cut-outs. Wear it with dainty jewellery and denim jeans.

5. Summer outfits: CUTOFFS. 

Can we all hold hands and do a happy dance now? Cutoffs to fashion and summer are like wine to me. It can’t live without me and I without it. It’s one of those things you know, you put a pair of vintage high waist cutoffs on and whatever else you decide to wear them with, will look amazing. Crop tops, bustiers, cami tops, statement shirts, tees, blazers, oversized blouses, hoodies, tank tops… everything will look fab! Shoes wise it’s exactly the same, although tbh I never really argued in favour of cutoffs and crop top and stilettos. Too much. But if you can make it work and look chic, not cheap, I’m in.

STYLE TIP:

A pair of high waist vintage cutoffs worn with a simple white top is the definition of simplicity and coolness. If you can pull this off, you have fantastic style.

Get The BAYWATCH Look!

What makes summer the greatest shtick of them all? Aside from the beach and the ocean, it’s the season of freedom and holidays, perfect destinations, lazy days by the sea, and the sartorial relaxation that comes with the territory, aka: beachwear. 2017 is the year of Baywatch. Well, more like Baywatch comeback but you get it: one-piece swimsuits, red all around, sexy with a dash of beach and sporty.

In other words all of us back in the day.

Yes we may not all be as nonchalant as an 18 year old rocking a swimsuit but we can all wear other Baywatch pieces for the fun of it. And we can rock a one-piece any-day and twice on Sunday. Cutoffs or not.

Travel Accessories You Simply Must Have

Flying is never fun, we can all agree on that. There is just so much waiting around at airports, often long lines, irritable passengers, and hideously expensive food and drinks – just hope your flight isn’t delayed as well. But other than the main point of flying – getting from A to B – there is one good reason for getting on a plane, and that’s all the fun travel accessories you get to use.

When we say travel accessories, we definitely don’t mean anything that will garner you strange looks, such as Ostrich pillows, air-conditioned shirts, motorized scooter suitcases, and ventilated fedoras (trust us, you don’t want to know). We’re talking about cool and fashionable items that will instead garner you approving looks from your fellow passengers.

So, next time you’re starting to pack for your holiday, if you haven’t got any of the following accessories, then take out those shirts you probably won’t wear and pack these instead.

Noise canceling headphones

Anyone who has flown before knows that planes can get a little loud. There are engine noises to battle, babies crying, groups of raucous partygoers, and maybe even a couple arguing for good measure. In short, it can be very hard to get some peace and quiet. But any frequent passenger worth their salt should do themselves a favor and pick up some fancy noise canceling headphones. It’s hard to surpass Sony when it comes to headphones, and their noise canceling range is full of awesome and colorful designs to meet a variety of tastes.

Something leather and classy

If you’re going to travel, then you might as well travel in style, right? There are a lot of eyes at airports, so it pays to be seen rocking something stylish and sophisticated. Black leather will never, ever go out of style, so it’s a safe investment to pick up anything from a carry-on bag to a passport holder to a toiletry bag in this beautiful material. Montblanc has a lot of gorgeous travel accessories, so they are well worth checking out before you fly.

Chic slippers

Sure, you can wear slippers anywhere, really, but if you’ve got a 12-hour flight ahead of you, then there’s no way you’re wearing shoes for the entire journey. But let’s get one thing straight, you’re not wearing your tatty, old slippers you’ve had since 2002, nor are you wearing those novelty monster feet slippers you were given once as a present. Any slippers to wear in public must be cool, which is why the ones from Galet are recommended. They have some great designs for men and women, and look extremely comfortable.

Men’s Beach Trends: What To Wear This Summer?

Most of us are busy getting ready for our summer break, buying new clothes and making sure we are ready for the beach. That applies to men as well as women, so I thought a quick roundup of men’s beach trends is exactly what we need right now. 

mens beach trends

Men’s beach trends: swimwear 

Let´s start with swimwear. No man is going to hit the beach without a pair of swim shorts or trunks. They are essential if he wants to look good and to be able to enjoy a dip.

This year, capsule and cargo style swim shorts are very much on trend. They look good, and can just as easily be worn in the evening, if it is warm enough.

Plain shorts seem to be the norm for 2017. However, a few retailers are offering bright colours like pink or red. In some shops, you will also find stripped, check, and camouflage patterns.

mens beach trends mens beach trends mens beach trends

Men’s t-shirt trends

Most men like to go bare-chested while on the beach, but also see the wisdom of taking a t-shirt with them to cover up if they need to. For 2017, most retailers are offering graphic tees, but there are plain ones available too.

Quite a lot of the logos styles that were popular in the 80s feature heavily in many shops’ collections. Some retailers are starting to stock layer style t-shirts too, but most of these are not really suitable for the beach.

Men’s beach trends: sandals

Many men like to wear flip flops for the beach. They are inexpensive, light and come in a huge range of colours, which makes them an especially good option for holidaymaker.

The only problem is that they are not suitable if you have a long walk to the beach or want to play football or volleyball rather than just swim and sunbathe. For men who want to do that a set of sandals is a more practical option. They stay on your feet and offer the freedom of movement you need, which stops your feet from being burnt by hot sand. Sports sandals are a particularly good option. They have Velcro straps that allow you to adjust them to get the fit just right. Slider sandals can also be a good option. Provided you get the fit right they will stay on the foot, even if you are planning to play beach games.

2017 men’s sunglasses trends

Sunglasses provide protection for the sun as well as helping you to look your best, so most men view them as a beach essential. For 2017, the main trend is for metal sunglasses, but they come in a big range of shapes including circular and oblong lenses. If you prefer plastic frames they are available, but your choice of lenses shape is a bit more limited than it would be if you opted to wear metal frames. A few retailers are also stocking oversize aviator glasses.

When choosing which sunglasses you are going to wear it is important to take into consideration the shape of your face. This in-depth guide explains which frame shape will work best for you.

The Duster Coat: How To Look Like A Million Dollars?

Well that’s easy, just keep riding your high horse and piss rainbows and butterflies. Do the occasional hair flip, wear sunglasses bigger than your head, a duster coat that hangs off your shoulder all the way down to the floor like you’re goddam Cruella. Oh, and always look ambushed by the paparazzi yet never out of style.

Like I said here, some people are born with it, some work a life time but never really nail it.

How to look like a million dollars? 

The key is to look effortless, and unbothered. The best way to do that apparently is to resort to this spring-summer’s biggest jacket trend: the DUSTER coat. Aka the silk robe, the reinvented kimono, the sleeveless trench-coat, the long vest.

Everyone who loves fashion knows that one of the style-keys to sophistication is layering. Yet when summer hits us hard you’d rather flaunt your birthday suit than layer up on clothes, you know. Luckily the duster coat got that predicament hence its ability to be layered without the extra body heat. So everyone form mortals to VIPs with a penchant for fashion have quickly jumped in the duster coat wagon and really do strike as millionaires on the go.duster coat duster coat duster coat

What exactly is a duster coat?

Basically it’s a very light version of the trench coat, to be worn in spring or chill summer days or evenings. It goes on for days,  so long and fluid it swipes the floors in the most dramatic way possible, it’s beautiful really.

Its siblings are the kimono, the trench, and the silk robe. Imagine all these got together and what came out was one piece to sum them all up: that is the duster, Long as a trench, light as a kimono, and effortless like a silk robe.

Micah Gianneli is the Queen on duster coats. <3

duster coat

How to wear a duster coat in summer?

It’s perfect for a cover up when you’re either a bit chilli or just feel slightly exposed in too skimpy outfits. Therefore it’s a great light jacket to wear over mini dresses, shorts, denim cutoffs and crop tops, jeans and bodysuits. Think summer casual to date night outfits, when you wanna feel breezy but are not too comfortable flaunting it all at first sight. You know what I mean?

And then there’s the style angle of it all. It looks amazing! A duster coat worn over any summer ensemble makes you look sophisticated. It’s also a fantastic piece for office summer outfits. You can just throw a duster over any office dress, or black pants with a silky blouse.

Shoes wise – truth of the matter is a great duster will look absolutely fabulous with stiletto heels. Period.

If however you wanna wear flats, sandals and espadrilles are a great option. However if that’s the case make sure you chose a robe silk like duster. Sort of casual but luxe, more like a summer super laid back cover up, rather than a light jacket per se.

duster coat duster coat

What duster coats to buy?

Yes, all is great in fashion world, but when it comes down to literally buying one or 2 dusters for summer, how does one know which are light enough, and will work well enough for both work and play. Let alone which’ll have that ‘effortless’ vibe to them?

Below is a list of my fave dusters and robes and vests and all the dramatic cover=ups we can shop for this summer. Click  on image to buy.

Almond Designs In Any Nail Polish Colors 

Almond nail designs have become a common pick for celebrities. This is a nail design that helps them bring that sense of glamour to the red carpet. It comes rounded at the edges and tapered at the tips, a design that’s reminiscent of an actual almond. The base comes a little bit longer, around 4 to 5mm of free edge.

Graphic French nail design breathes some new life to the tips to provide that contrasting look. This is achieved using some graphic shapes customized to match your taste. It gives you a summer nail design that looks updated and modern.

The good thing about this nail design is that it can be used on both natural nails and extensions. Typically, 3D appliques are created using acrylics.
