Between the sweltering heat outside and the frigid air-conditioned indoors, dressing stylishly for work can be a huge challenge - but it's not entirely impossible if you have a few key pieces in your closet. Here are 3 outfit ideas to help you achieve workplace chic this summer (click on any item for shopping details):
Summer staple: Cotton pants
How to wear them: Sleeveless top, lightweight blazer and fun pumps.
Some guidelines: I'm a big advocate of black twill pants because they're dressy, go with everything and totally comfortable. If you can find a pair with a bit of spandex, these will give you a bit of stretch and hold their shape better when you wash them.
