Perfect for Work: The Denim Dress in Summer

As I walked to work this morning, I had a minor panic attack. It’s not yet June, and the humidity and heat that greeted me as I walked down Broome Street was stifling. Temperatures in New York City are forecast to be in the eighties all week – all workweek.

I feel like every summer out here on the East Coast I forget how uncomfortable it can get, and especially how difficult it can be to dress for work during this season.

If you work in a corporate or business casual environment, you especially have to be mindful of what you wear, and it can be especially limiting. I probably can’t tell you to wear denim Bermuda shorts, right? Enter, the denim dress. With the right shoes and accessories this piece can really work for work. The trick with work looks is to always keep everything else polished and simple if your focal piece is more casual.

Currently on sale, this DvF Loves Current / Elliott wrap dress is a great option. If you office has a bit more of a lax dress code in the summer months, this AG Adriano Goldshmied shift will look great with layered necklaces and flats, as will this Tory Burch belted shirtdress.
