Outfit: Summer Work Style

May 21, 2012

On TAGG’s Facebook page this weekend, you mentioned you’d love to see more of my work looks. This worked out well since that’s what I planned on showing you today! Our office is business casual; do you need to look more corporate? If so, check out this recent look that would be great for summer (consider swapping out the black blazer for a light neutral).

As you know I’m a bit of a cardigan addict. I’ve amassed about three floral cardigans and I highly recommend you do as well. It doesn’t seem like an obvious ‘closet must’ however it adds such vibrancy to a look be it for work for weekend. This cardigan has been around for a few season and continues to bring in the compliments. I’ve even worn this out, buttoned up like a blouse with a tank underneath, with a pair of jeans. Loves.

For summer work styles, look for brighter colors and light weight fabrics, but me mindful of rising hemlines and showing too much skin (a workplace no-no).  And, while our office is business casual, I wouldn’t wear this when meeting with a law firm yet it’s perfectly appropriate for our meeting with a non-profit client… consider what you have going on each day.

Not a skirt person? Swap this out for a pair of pants; I love navy.

cardigan: old navy (2010; similar for under $20!) // camisole: h&m (march 2012) // skirt: j. crew factory (may 2012; similar) // heels: mia rhodes  (last seen here) // necklace: forever 21 // watch: michael kors (2011) // tote: michael kors (march 2012; birthday gift!) //

      Thank you! Excited about this necklace because it’s almost identical to one my friend bought in Bloomies for about 6x/price!

    Absolutely love this look on you - it’s so bright and fun!  I think I need you to come shopping with me & help me pick out a cardigan…I still don’t own a single one!

    Alas, I have no floral cardigans. This is inspiring me!

    • ALyson — TAGG

      I totally vote for the next cardigan to be floral!

    First of all, I am also a cardigan addict and completely support the idea of 3 floral cardigans being an absolute necessity. :) Second of all, I love your shoes! So cute!

    I love the green and blue together, one of my have color combos. That sweater is so sweet reminds me of marimekko 

    • ALyson — TAGG

      thank you so much; kind of obsessed with the floral. 

  • Jamie-Lee Burns

    Absolutely love this - you look wonderful. I’m a cardigan addict too but I think mine are all plain! Wish I could mix colours like you.


    • ALyson — TAGG

      You can totally mix colors! The easiest, fail-proof way is to get a cardigan with a lot of colors and then pick out colors from there. Guaranteed to work. Thanks so much for stopping by! 

  • Glamamom

    Ok, that is the cutest office outfit I’ve ever seen!  Beautiful colors!
