The summer season is still in full swing here in Georgia, and if you have an office job, it can be tricky trying to figure out what to wear to work throughout the summer months. It’s hot and humid outside, but usually freezing cold in the office. And if you work a desk job, you’re sitting still the majority of the day, which makes you feel even more cold. I’ve even known friends to have a stash of blankets at their desk because of how chilly their space is at work! Despite a couple of hot-and-cold challenges, there are ways to look chic and stay comfortable while working and during your commute to work. I’m sharing a roundup of summer office outfit ideas that are yet HR-approved, office-appropriate, and commute-friendly. These are all workwear outfits that you can wear during the warmest days of summer. Let’s jump in!

There’s nothing much more comfortable than a midi slip skirt with an elastic waistband. It’s long enough that you don’t have to worry about feeling exposed, while still being flowy and so much fun to wear.
