Dressing for work in the summer can be tricky, especially in a corporate setting. If your office has a strict dress code but you still want to look stylish, splurge on a versatile suit. This navy one by Joseph features a blazer with a subtle black satin lapel — a nice personal touch among the sea of gray and black found in any typical office. We paired it with fancy accessories like a rich burgundy bag and sleek nude suede pumps, but feel free to incorporate similar items you already own. To make the most of your purchase, wear it now with a cream sleeveless double-breasted blouse (you’ll stay cool during your commute), and then swap for a traditional long sleeve shirt in the colder months.
