One Summer Style Look That’s Work Appropriate And Can Transition You To Early Autumn

The best time to start dressing with an extra layering for those cool/cold transitioning days as the Autumn/Winter season knocks on the door starts now. Styling yourself to work, cafe, meeting up with friends or just a simple social gathering does not have to be so hard, but finding a simple stylish dress, paired with your favorite soft outerwear will give you the versatility of wearing it anywhere.

The work-from-home lifestyle can have many of us stuck with leggings, pajamas, and other loungewear which can make it difficult in deciding what to wear to work and many social gatherings. This is where we come in, there’s this one-style look that can fit for work, simple occasions, and running errands. This style look was spotted on the street style of a fashion week, a place we all go to when looking for style inspiration e.t.c.

It’s the sweater vest paired with a ‘schic’ summer sundress finished with a pair of boots and a top handle bag. The accessories come in neons and can be translated as a pop of colour to the outfit which is somehow very appropriate considering the fact we’re still in the summer season.

Summer style look

So to achieve this look, we opted for a white Khaite sundress that can also fit for dinner and many occasions, paired with a pastel Fuschia pink sweater vest by Sandro Paris. To finish the look, we opted for a pair of  Chelsea boots by Rick Owens (Chelsea boots are like a trend this season as seen on Dior’s Resort’22 runway), knee-length socks from Asos for extra warmth on those cool-cold days, and a pink top handle bag Balenciaga to match the sweater vest. This look will transition into the Autumn Winter season and will fit many occasions including work.
