With warmer weather settling into North Dallas, your office building has likely started to kick on the air conditioning leaving you, well, conflicted. Shall you freeze in your office or swelter in the sweet afternoon sun? We’ve selected a few warmer weather options that cater to both polar climates!
The Lightweight Blazer
A lightweight blazer is a must-have for the office space. Whether the environment tends toward casual or formal, a blazer fits in seamlessly. For women, J. Crew’s Parke Blazer in Stretch Linen ($168) is an excellent choice. Its neutral shade pairs well with all colors and styles – dresses, jeans, t-shirts – and keeps you snug in cooler spaces, while breathing well in higher temperatures.
J. Crew’s Ludlow Unstructured Suit Jacket in Cotton-Linen ($168) is a wonderful alternative for men. Made with a similar super-breathable material, it’s a layer that’s so versatile they call it the un-suit. Meaning? It fits your mood and level of comfort any day of the week – simply put, you look like Monday, but feel like Friday.
The Midi Skirt
A midi skirt makes life in a chilly office bearable, and we think you’re really going to love Anthropologie’s Catania Colorblock Skirt ($138). This beautiful spring selection keeps you warm beneath the air vent and still feels light and airy whether you’re stepping out for some fresh air or settled at your desk near the window. Furthermore, it’s a dress it up or dress it down kind of staple.
The Office-Style Athleisure Pant
Everybody is on-board with athleisure style, and Lululemon has really stepped up the game. The men’s Commission Pant Slim ($128) has all the comforts of sweatpants while taking pointers from the Chino-style cut. While this may push the dress code in certain spaces, we’re pretty sure the only employee to spot the difference is you. The best part? On a warm day, or in a particularly stressful meeting, it’s sweat-wicking material saves the day.
