Stay Cool and Professional with These 12 Summer Office Outfits

Put away those heavy blazers and wool work pants – it’s finally time to break out your lightweight summer workwear!

While we’re excited about the switch to summer clothes, we’re also facing the age-old challenge of staying cool while looking professional. Balancing style and comfort in the heat can be tricky, but our style experts at Current Boutique are here to help!

Check out our favorite summer workwear outfit ideas for 2024 that will have you oozing confidence in and out of the office.

1. Lightweight linen suit

Linen is perfect for hot summer days, offering lightweight breathability while maintaining structure and professionalism. Choose a well-tailored linen suit in a light, summery color like beige, ivory, or light gray. Pair it with a crisp white button-down and leather loafers for a timeless, sophisticated look.

If your workplace is more casual, try an unstructured linen blazer paired with a flowy skirt for a cool, chic ensemble.

Another great option is a lightweight linen jumpsuit. Look for jumpsuits with a crisp collar and tailored waist (like our Vince sleeveless jumpsuit, which won’t be in stock much longer).

2. Sleeveless midi dress

For a feminine professional vibe, try a sleeveless midi dress in lightweight fabrics like cotton or silk. Keep it polished and put-together with a tailored silhouette and solid colors or classic patterns like stripes or polka dots.

5. Breezy jumpsuit

Black jumpsuits always feel sophisticated, and they can easily transition from summer to fall by simply changing up your accessories.

When purchasing a jumpsuit, focus on fit and silhouette. Ones that cinch at the waist and ankles create a gorgeous shape that’s appropriate for everything from board meetings to errands to date night.

6. Tunic dress

A tunic dress features a loose-fitting, straight or A-line silhouette that falls between the hip and knee. Its relaxed, loose fit is ideal for summer, but structured details – like buttons and a collar –make it workwear appropriate.

Depending on your comfort and office environment, you can wear a tunic dress by itself or layered over leggings or trousers for a slouchy-chic vibe.

Tunic dresses are beloved for their comfort and ease of wear, allowing free movement. Dress them up for the office with pumps and clean jewelry, or go summer-casual with strappy sandals and a wide-brimmed hat.
