Ah, summer. When the air gets thick and commutes turn even the most glamorous – and poreless – into sticky, hot messes.
One of the toughest challenges facing every career girl between July and August is how to stylishly navigate both sweltering sidewalks and a bone-chilling offices all in the same day…sometimes even in the same minute.
The key is to look covered up, not bundled up. Something about Nanook of the North at a post-July 4th client meeting looks seriously out of place. But before you reach for that pashmina usually reserved for chilly airplanes (and a bit out of the new employee price point), there are so many cute, affordable, and work-appropriate options that won’t leave you looking like grandmother.
Think about ditching that structured blazer in lieu of something easy and breezy like this soft iris cardigan.
Or if haute couture is more your inspiration take a cue from Miu Miu’s S/S 2012 capelets.
