Maxi Madness

Look hot while keeping cool.  That is what the new maxi allows you to do.  These lightweight, and stretchy, skirts come in a myriad of eye-catching fabrics, ones that enliven the senses.

Pair a colorful maxi with a crisp white blouse, either short sleeved or sleeveless. Cinch the blouse with a wide belt, add a pair of colorful flats, chunky gold earrings, and you’re ready for a day at the office.

Capri Heaven

Thank goodness capris still reign supreme when it comes to warm weather office attire.  This is because even having the lower calf exposed will help to keep a person much cooler.

For the office, opt for plain (structured) capris instead of a drawstring or ultra fussy versions. Pair them with a colorful sleeveless shell and wedge heels.  Add a statement necklace for added appeal.

Shift Sense

Dresses at the office never go out of style, and today’s shift dresses are no exception.  This amazingly versatile garment merely skims the body, giving plenty of breathing room on hot days.

Imagine a navy, knee length shift dress paired with nude heels.  This outfit would certainly work well at a power meeting, or if you plan on going out after work, opt for the ultra trendy lace covered shift dress in off white.  Trade heels for sandals before you enter the restaurant, and you’ve made the transition from business to casual in a flash!

Blue Jean Fridays

Many businesses allow staff to don jeans on Fridays during the summer months.  Take advantage of your company’s blue jean Fridays by wearing your favorite skinny jeans. Roll each leg two or three times to form a one inch cuff, add a pair of brightly colored flats, and finish the look with a breezy, checkered blouse. Your will look absolutely fabulous!

A word of caution: avoid worn or torn jeans. You still want to look office worthy!

Hot Days/Cool Outfits

These four outfit ideas merely hint at the amazing clothes plus sized women can wear to work during the summer months.  For instance, if you pick the right fabrics, you will almost guarantee you will stay cool.  Also, don’t be afraid to layer pieces.  Depending on how high the air conditioning is set at your place of work, you might need to add or remove a layer several times during the course of the work day. Finally, wearing colors considered as “cool,” such as light blue or white, may be the best choice for women experiencing hot flashes!
