I stole this look from J. Crew but found the skirt for $20 from Loft here. The skirt fits me like a glove and is made of a cotton/stretch blend that doesn't wrinkle. Black & white goes with everything. The skirt is available in more sizes in stores.
The top I got from J. Crew for $18.55.
I stole the concept for Outfit 2 from J. Crew too--a crochet skirt and crisp white oxford.
I paid $29 for the skirt from Athleta. Never wrinkles, goes everywhere. Similar here.
The shirt I've had forever, but I recently bought a new one from J. Crew Factory for about $33 including shipping.
I think dresses are often the least expensive and the least trouble, especially in the summer when you don't have to wear tights. I got this dress at H&M for $19.95. It would have been really short in my usual size, so I sized up until the length felt sassy but appropriate for work. I added my own belt and a lovely purse that a friend brought back for me as a gift from Italy.
They still carry the dress in the store. Never wrinkles.
What are your go-to outfits for work this summer? How are you keeping cool and unwrinkled?
