14 Stylish, Summer-Friendly Outfits to Wear to Work

You’re not about to catch us complaining about warmer weather. Summer, however, does pose its own complications, specifically when it comes to keeping your look sharp. When it’s hot, it’s hard to fathom the idea of putting together a multilayer outfit. Which, of course, means it’s hard to craft an outfit at all, given you only have a few pieces to work with.

Not to worry: Some of the most stylish globe-trotting celebrities have been tested with the same kind of challenge—and with the added bonus of paparazzi capturing those fits. That gives us documentation and inspiration for our own summer-friendly style. Here are 14 of the best outfits to wear to work this summer.

If you have to wear a suit all year long, it’s worth investing in one meant specifically for warm weather. Lighten up the fabric, color, and construction to stay comfortable all day.

Speaking of summer suits, you can make your year-round-ish ones work by lightening up the layers. A sleek white tee is the perfect summer layer.

For a more casual office, keep a denim jacket on hand. You can commute to work in a tee to stay cool and put on the jacket once you’re inside.

Those polos look good layered with a suit, too. The short sleeves and lighter fabric mean less intense layering—but it still feels like a proper outfit if you take the jacket off.

While the winter might be about outdoor layers, the summer is all about indoor ones. Wear a short-sleeve button-down to the office and throw on a jacket once you get there.

Same goes for sweaters. Wear a T-shirt and pack a knit in your bag.

For suits-only offices, you still have some room for movement. Ditch the tie and go for a printed lightweight shirt instead of a more traditional dress shirt.

Business casual is often open to interpretation. But if your office leans into the casual of business casual, dark chinos and white sneakers are the way to go.

A base for any good outfit: black jeans and a white tee. Put on and remove your jacket at your leisure.

Suits work best in the summer when you still have an outfit once that jacket comes off. A contrast-collar polo is a good way to ensure that.

Think beyond your standard dress shirt for summer. A linen-blend, mandarin-collar shirt is much more aired-out than the norm.
