Get smart, as I am here to share with you a business guide on what to wear at work this Summer if you are over 45. Of course, there are companies with some kind of special dress codes, but generally firms keep things business casual. I mean, chic blazer is a stylish cover-up for women who like to wear tops with exposed spaghetti straps and tank tops. Of course, you should avoid any kind of mini skirt or shorts, do not expose your legs during work hours. Speaking of shoes, then I do recommend to wear sandals or flats, but no flip-flops are allowed, unless you work somewhere in Hawaii.
A classic pencil dress with short sleeves can be updated with a matte black leather belt, short black blazer, embellished black heeled pumps and snakeskin clutch bag.
Never, I say never wear sheer clothing. This is absolutely unprofessional and looks terribly cheap. If your dress has no sleeves, then you should always cover it with something like cardigan, shawl, wide scarf or anything else that can cover your shoulders. If your company insists you on wearing black pantsuits, then you should freshen and lighten it up with something bright and colorful, like a cute blouse or shirt. If you are about to wear prints, then you should always balance them with something neutral solid colored. The last but not least, even if you are working in a conservative environment you can still let your personality out.
