Incorporating bright and fun colors with this summer’s “fun at work” trend can inject a dose of energy and positivity into your professional attire—perfect for the summer season. Start with a statement piece in a vibrant hue—we love a butter-yellow blazer or orange silk blouse—and balance it with neutral basics like a white button-down or gray pencil skirt. Don’t shy away from playful patterns and prints! A floral dress or a striped top can add a cheerful yet professional vibe.  Stylist Mika Harris suggests introducing a pop of color with accessories: bold jewelry, a bright scarf or a colorful tote add freshness to any summer look. Throw on a neutral trench for the finishing touch. Mixing fun colors and neutrals in your summer workwear will bring a lightness to your workload all season long.

Poplin cotton shirts offer a crisp and lightweight option for hot days while maintaining a polished appearance. Flowy pants—with their relaxed fit and soft feel—provide a cool alternative to jeans and bring a laid-back yet sophisticated vibe to your look. Dresses in bold prints and striking colors are classics, offering a one-and-done outfit solution that stands out in any setting.  Stylist Mika suggests lightweight layers in breathable fabrics like chambray and linen to add interest and texture to your summer outfits.

Embrace the “world traveler” trend this summer by mixing elevated casual style with a sense of global adventure. This trend allows you to channel a globetrotter’s spirit, blending comfort, practicality and fashion-forward elements for a summer-ready look ready for any journey. Explore summer in light, breathable fabrics that keep you cool while looking chic. Cargo and utility styles add a practical yet stylish edge, perfect for any spontaneous summer escapade. Maxi dresses and midi lengths offer versatile elegance, easily transitioning from day to night. Earth tones ground your look in a natural palette, while tropical and abstract floral prints infuse your wardrobe with vibrant energy and a touch of wanderlust.

Cocktail hour: the summer social style trend

This summer, the “cocktail hour” trend is all about effortlessly transitioning from office chic to social night out. Whether heading straight from the office or meeting up later, this trend ensures you’re always dressed to impress with minimal effort, embodying elegance and ease. Keep your look simple yet stunning with beautiful dresses and easy separates that make a statement. Opt for great tops paired with stylish skirts, all adorned in energetic prints like florals, polka dots and playful animal patterns.  Stylist Mika says, “Round out your ensemble with stylish but comfortable shoes, such as flat strappy sandals or kitten pumps.” The key to a versatile outfit is layers. One piece can change the mood: swap a blazer for a jean jacket after hours or go from wedges in the office to strappy sandals. A versatile dress or skirt allows you to shift from a professional setting to an evening out by changing up your layers and accessories, perfect for enjoying an Aperol Spritz as the sun sets. 

Summer whites: chic monochrome trend

Summer 2024 is all about embracing the timeless elegance of “summer whites.” This trend exudes effortless luxury and is perfect for everything from beachside brunches to evening garden parties, making it the ultimate go-to for a polished and radiant summer look. Creams, whites and beiges set the tone for this perfect summer palette, offering a fresh, sophisticated, versatile and chic look. Mix different shades of white in your outfit to make a styling statement with interesting depth and texture. Stylist Mika recommends pairing a crisp white blouse with ecru linen pants or a cream lace top with a flowing white skirt.  The subtle variations in tone create a rich, layered effect that elevates your ensemble. Accessorize with natural materials like straw hats and wicker bags to enhance the summery vibe.
