Playing Refresh Your Summer Office Style Like Shay Mitchell & Kim Kardashian

Summer means short shorts, bikinis and flip flops! Sadly, that doesn’t apply during work hours. So how do you fashionably battle the sweltering temperatures when you’re at the office?

Footwear is key to a cool and fresh look. The trick is to not look too relaxed by wearing flip flops and instead switching to a low heel sandal or opting for thicker straps. Try slip-on styles. The lack of an ankle strap will make your legs look instantly longer. A chunky block heel will be versatile, bringing all day comfort and won’t break your dress code.

Get out of those stiff shift dresses and pencil skirts and revel in flowing dresses and maxi skirts. Cover up with a light cardigan or blazer but embrace bright colors and busy prints like Shay Mitchell for a fun yet polished look.

Brighten up your wardrobe with lighter colors like blush pink or nudes like Kim Kardashian. Pink matches with everything and looks exceptionally refreshing when paired with white. If you want to go a less girly route, try baby blue or yellow for a color that pops.

Ditch the oversized handbag and accessorize with smaller styles. Brightly colored embellished and geometric designs in a miniature form will be all you need to finish off your outfit. You can also keep it simple like Paris Hilton with a white handbag. It’ll add a freshness to neutrals and pop against darker colors.
