Dressing professionally in the Summer is always a tricky balancing act. You want to look like a total Boss – perfectly put together with a bit of flare – without turning into a hot sweaty mess by the end of a day. If you’re like me, you like to keep your workwear style simple and fun enough to be able to go from the office to a rooftop patio for an after-hours cocktail.
Two brands that I’m digging right now for my summer style fix is Terese Sydonna and Daya Shoes.
First of all, the Jamaican-born, New York-bred, Terese Sydonna‘s River Collection is everything right with fashion right now. Her Ursula Print 2-way Zip Tulip- Skirt Neoprene Dress ($375) is super fly, comfortable and an ideal choice for just about any business related meeting.
I love the soft flower detailing and dual-zipper that you can adjust to show as much leg as you want. But of course, I like to keep it classy.
I’m also a sucker for dresses with pockets that don’t look like wings about to take flight.
The dress is just as sleek and stylish in black and could be your LBD Summer go-to.
I also feel in love with the Hurricane Skirt ($395) which is a great choice for those creative work days and Friday afternoons.
I paired the colorful skirt with a throwback crop Tommy Hilfiger jean jacket, but it would also look amazing with a crisp white button up shirt or black tank.
The new Sole of Daya shoe line by – the actress, singer and mogul in the making – Zendaya is also a perfect pick for Summer.
I paired these garden inspired pumps ($79) with an oldie-but-goodie Calvin Klein fit-and-flare dress.
The multi-color pattern would look fabulous with just about any outfit and would add the right amount of pop to a LBD.
I’m normally not big fan of leopard, but this pair Sole of Daya heels ($79) just spoke to me. Why not add a touch of the wild side to your wardrobe this Summer;)?
