Ask a Stylist #2: Your Questions Answered!
Why is this still a thing? How many times have you been shivering at your desk, only to have your body go into a bizarre and instant cold sweat upon walking outdoors during the Summer? Whoever is managing the temperatures in office spaces around the world are country are failing… miserably. So what’s a girl to do when it’s freezing in the office and hot outside?
Check out our go-to tips for managing the temps in style, both indoors and out.
Cami & Blazer Combo
It’s time to master the art of the layer. Doing a simple silk or cotton cami underneath a blazer or jacket makes transitioning temps a breeze (pun intended). Take it off when you head outside, add it back when you step in to your office. I recommend keeping a basic black blazer at the office ALWAYS, so that way you’ll never be stuck shivering in your cubicle.
Midi skirts and dresses are so perfect for high/low temps. Long enough to cover the majority of your legs, but still breezy and flowy enough for the outdoors, they are a great bottoms alternative that’s weather appropriate.
Opt for a long sleeve linen dress - the sleeve length will keep you warm and the fabric will quickly dry post ‘walk to lunch sweat session’. It's both breathable and cold-blocking all in one. Trust us.
Wide Leg Airy Pants
Same idea as the midi skirt - this silhouette covers the legs yet is breathable enough for a midday stroll outside.
