Summer Work Outfits : Theory Edition
Summer can be a tricky season to dress for in general. Add having to be business-appropriate or business-professional to the mix, and phew, you’ve got a challenging task at hand. Don’t worry; here at Garbarini, we’ve got you covered (literally!).
When it comes to dressing for the office, Theory has many great pieces to help you create the perfect summer work outfit. Check out some of our favorites below!
Oversized blazers aren’t going out of style anytime soon. As timeless as they are, they’re also perfect for layering over a summer work outfit. Theory’s Riding Blazer has a strong, feminine silhouette and is made of waste cotton fibers. Throw it over a dress or skirt, or pair it with jeans and a tee. You won’t have to worry about the AC cranking when you have this stylish blazer to cover you up.
Side Drape T-Shirt Dress
Is there anything easier than throwing on a cotton T-Shirt dress before you head to the office? Nope! That’s why you need at least one in your closet. Theory’s Side Drape Tee Dress elevates the classic silhouette with its asymmetrical side draping. Despite its chic look, you can wear it with everything from sneakers to sandals or heels.
Tie Waist Shirtdress
If you work in a more formal setting, you’ll want a cute work outfit that meets the dress code. Enter Theory’s Tie Waist Shirtdress. Draped for a relaxed fit, this collared midi dress features buttons down the front for a clean, polished look. It also has a tie around the waist to give the piece some definition. Wear it with your most comfortable pair of heels, and you’ll be set for day to night.
Dark denim is perfect for casual Fridays and casual office spaces. Looking for something modern and comfortable? Theory’s Five Pocket Kick Flare Pant in EcoBistretch are both office-approved and on-trend. These mid-rise pants have a cropped, flare silhouette making them ideal for the summer season. Pair them with a plain T-shirt and loafers; you’ll look cool, casual, and put together.
No pants have made a bigger comeback than cargo pants. If you’re looking for a pair you can wear to the office and out for drinks, we suggest Theory’s Cargo Pant in Neoteric Twill. These cargos are perfect for those who are already fans of Theory’s wide-leg pants. They’re made from a breathable performance fabric that’s so easy to move in. Be prepared for all water cooler conversations to revolve around your outfit — in the best ways!
Now that your staples are out of the way, here are some of the items you need to complete your Theory summer work outfits.
For those who want to wear the Theory Riding Blazer in a corporate environment, pair it with the ATM Bias Midi Skirt. The length of the skirt is office appropriate, but the silk material gives it a more laidback appeal. And it features an elastic knit waistband and A-line silhouette, so discomfort is nothing to worry about. To keep the look elevated, pair it with a strappy or platform heel. But, if your morning commute requires sneakers, they won’t throw the outfit off kilter.
If you’re looking for something more than denim or cargo pants, try the L’Agence Logan Trouser. Instead of your everyday work pants, these trousers feature a black-and-ivory houndstooth check pattern. Perfect for a day at your desk or an office outing! Not only are they comfortable, the straight-leg hem means you can wear them with whatever shoe you want. Pair it with a plain tee or camisole and, of course, the Riding Blazer if you need layers.
It’s never the wrong time to update your shoe closet! For those who want a shoe they can wear beyond the office, try the Stuart Weitzman Soho Loafer. These loafers are perfect for those who work in the city and those who like to pretend they do. The chunky soles are bold and trendy and allow you to wear them with anything and everything. Yes, that means they go with all of our Theory summer work outfit choices!
Tan Block Heels
A tan sandal goes hand in hand with summer. If you’re looking for an option that works in the office, we suggest See by Chloe Chany Heel. These sandals have a block heel and adjustable buckle strap so you can last in them all day long. Plus, they have leather rings interlaced with gold-toned hardware, effortlessly blending fashion with function. Wear them with the Side Drape T-Shirt Dress or Cargo Pants, and listen to the compliments roll in.
Black Over the Knee Boots
While summer may not be synonymous with boots, the Stuart Weitzman Reserve Boot defies conventional norms and brings a touch of sophistication to your work wardrobe. These sleek and versatile boots are a perfect choice for those who want a stylish yet professional look. Their streamlined silhouette and comfortable low heel make them ideal for long days at the office or when happy hour turns into a night out. Pair them with the Side Drape T-Shirt Dress or Tie Waist Shirtdress to elevate your look and exude confidence. Embrace the unexpected and make a fashion statement at work this summer!
