Comfy and chic summer office attire

Q. My office wardrobe feels so stale and uninspired lately. Now that summer is here, I feel like I should be wearing something more exciting – but I can’t really break dress code either. Are there any styles or pieces you can suggest that will shake things up without going overboard?

A. Corporate attire doesn’t always inspire a great deal of excitement, but with a few small tweaks here and there you can really change things up just enough to make your summer 9-to-5 more stylish. The key is to achieve a balance that addresses the sweltering temps outside and your no doubt brisk, air-conditioned office. Don’t shy away from bright colors that add a little pop to your practical neutrals, and embrace the simplicity of lightweight fabrics that keep you comfy all day long. Here are a few pieces that will seamlessly integrate into your work wardrobe.
