Keep Cool With These Business Casual Summer Outfits

Warm and humid days can make dressing up for the office pretty challenging. While you want to be comfy, it's also important that you still look polished and professional. Here are some business casual summer outfit ideas to keep you cool and stylish while still hitting those quotas.

Linen Love

Linen is a staple summer fabric that can be reworked throughout the year. It’s lightweight so your skin can breathe but still looks chic and put together. For a polished look, add a belt to a loose-fitting linen frock and pair with a statement bucket bag. This summer midi dress style can easily go from the office to a brunch appointment with clients.

Go for a pastel pantsuit or pastel dress for a low-key boss approach and accessorize with a clutch bag or tote bag that balances the colors of your outfit.
