The Lazy Girl's Guide To Getting Dressed For Summer

Getting dressed for work is definitely the hardest during the summer. You don’t want to wear pants in hot temperatures, and an increase in post-work plans calls for a whole outfit change (but who actually has the time/energy to do that?). The result: we tend to blur the line of what is office appropriate. You know what we’re talking about. We’ve all had that co-worker who wears a too revealing skirt or a crazy printed dress. We’ve rounded up a bunch of day-to-night dresses so you won’t be that girl. You can just throw one of these on in the morning and go straight from your desk to dinner. Before you start shopping, read up on these tips for what makes a good day-to-night look. And the lazy just got lazier.

Styles that work: Sheath, Wrap, A-line and Shift dresses

These four styles are all office appropriate, and you can definitely find options for nightwear too that aren’t all business.

Don’t get too crazy with colors and/or prints. Pick one.

If you’re wearing a bright color or printed dress, the rest of your outfit should be neutral. Your dress should draw all the attention, not your shoes, handbag and jewelry.

Accessories and shoes are key.

If you’re wearing a more plain/neutral outfit, dress it up for evening with your shoes and accessories. Wear a piece of statement jewelry or a pair of colored pumps.

Add a blazer or vest if you need to cover your shoulders in the office.

A sweater might be your go-to shoulder covering, but a blazer looks way more polished and sophisticated. For a more casual office environment, a jean or utility vest over your dress is an unexpected alternative to a boring sweater.
