-You can wear white all year long. Go from cotton and linen in the Summer months and switch to cashmere, wool and denim for the Fall and Winter months.
-While an all white outfit can seem perfect for a hot and humid day it can also appear a bit boring. Add a little color with your handbag, sandals and jewelry. White can be the perfect “canvas” to make those colors pop.
-Even when it’s hot outside, it’s still inappropriate to bare excessive skin in the office. Add a jacket or lightweight cardigan over a skimpy sundress or strapless dress. Don’t go shorter than mid-thigh with dresses and skirts. You know it’s wrong if you bend over and we can see your panties. Summer party clothes are for parties, not the office.
-Simple changes to go from day to night: switch flats for heels and add bolder jewelry.
