Summer office outfits are a tricky thing. You want to look professional, but sweltering temperatures make it pretty dang hard to stand a blazer, suit, or pants on the regular. While breezy sundresses, swingy skirts, and airy tops are ideal off-duty, there is a way to feel just as comfortable and summery at work. The answer is a skirt-and-top outfit combo starring this POPSUGAR Tie-Front Button-Up Tank Top ($27, originally $36) and POPSUGAR Tiered Midi Skirt ($45, originally $60).
A modern take on a classically tailored piece, this button-down tank top is the ideal look for any office. On its own, you’re able to breathe a little easier sans sleeves while maintaining a level of sophistication that feels right for meetings, presentations, and beyond. When you need to button up a little more or find a solution for overactive AC, the tank layers perfectly under lightweight jackets or sweaters.
As for the skirt, a longer silhouette (which is a major trend for Summer and into Fall) feels apropos for the office, while the feminine and flattering silhouette maintains a warm-weather vibe thanks to the linen material, sun-kissed stripes, and swingy shape. If you’re into a simpler A-line cut, the POPSUGAR Textured Button-Front Skirt ($45, originally $60) and POPSUGAR Textured Button Front Skirt ($45, originally $60) are two lightweight options that, when paired with a structured top, appear polished for work with a warm-weather spin.
From crisp white to gingham checks and cool-in-the-heat colors, ahead, shop the Summer office outfit combo I’m obsessed with. I guarantee this comfortable, affordable, and fresh formula will streamline your Monday through Friday lineup.
