How to Dress for Success: Summer Office Outfits
When it comes to summer work outfits, casual is key. Taking the lead are cool material, ruffled layers, and flirty lines. The 2020 women's summer work outfits consist of both classic pieces and the newest trends. From boyfriend blazers to fresh colors, your summer office outfits will certainly make a splash when you return to work.
Ready to browse? Here are some great women's summer work outfits to start with.

1. Calvin Klein Women's Short Sleeve Belted Midi Dress
The midi dress, with its intriguing hemline and flattering silhouette, bolted onto the 2019 fashion scene when stars like Kylie Jenner dawned them everywhere. In 2020, midis are still going strong, and have made their way to summer office outfits. We especially love this Calvin Klein Midi's clean shape and elegant appeal. It's a smart piece to start your summer office outfits with.

2. BCBGMAXAZRIA Women's Wrap Leopard Print Dress
Both work-friendly and casual, the wrap dress is a versatile style. For the office, tone it down with a jacket and pumps; for happy hour, liven it up with bright accessories. We especially like this leopard printed dress by BCBGMAXAZRIA, because of its feminine shape, funky uneven hem, and wild prints. The dress has solid structure that is great for work, and soft material that moves as you move. What a lovely combination!

3. Michael Kors Printed Ruffled Sleeve Top
Ruffled sleeves are making a comeback for women's summer work outfits in 2020. This printed blouse by Michael Kors adds a light-hearted twist to the classic style. Its cap-style ruffled sleeves add volume without looking too intrusive. We also enjoy its subtle brightness that fits both work and play.

4. Dotted Prints
When Miss America 1926, Norma Des Cygne Smallwood, wore a polka-dotted swimsuit in a photograph, polka dots became an instant hit. Since then, many celebrities, including Mini Mouse and Marilyn Monroe, sported this pretty print. Fast forward nearly 100 years, polka dots continue to appear on runways, each year emerging in a new form. This dotted dress is spot-on in both form and artistry. We love how it flows and how comfortable it feels.

5. High Waisted Pants
High-waisted pants accentuate the waistline, elongate legs and, look great with just about anything. They scream elegance while providing comfort, and work for almost any body type. We love these simple High Waisted Pants because they are formal enough for work and casual enough for out-of-the-office occasions. They are also incredibly affordable, so you can afford to pick up an extra pair in a different color.

6. The form-fitting dress
No matter what your shape or size, you can pull off a form-fitting dress. You just have to find the right one for your body type. Yes, it requires an incredible amount of confidence to wear a body-hugging dress. So choose one that is comfortable, flatting, and accentuates your best assets. We like the dress below because its solid color is flattering and its jersey-like material feels smooth and cozy. We also like its tulip-shaped hem, which shows off your legs.

7. The Caped Jumpsuit
Jumpsuits have an edgy style that may not always suit the office environment. However, this tasteful Caped Jumpsuit offers grace and sophistication without slashing off the style and the fun. The cape gives you excellent cover, and at the same time enlarge your presence. It's a clever way to wear the latest trend and look completely professional.

8. BCBGMAXAZRIA Women's Pleated Ruffle Gown
Sway into the summer, and back into the office, with this bright pleated maxi. It adds a burst of brilliance like sunny summer days, and gives you just the energy you need for busy work days.

9. The White Caped Jacket
This caped jacket isn't like any others. It manages to stay put without restricting your arms. Though we are unsure whether it is a cape, blazer or poncho, we know it's sexy, on-trend and in a white hot shade, perfect for the summer.

10. The Boyfriend Blazer
The oversized boyfriend blazer has been trending everywhere, and we see why. It's casual, comfy, and stylish, and slightly slouched to give you a relaxed feel. If you find one this summer, we recommend that you keep it for seasons to come.
