It’s eight zillion degrees out, we’re all sweating like a bunch of savages, yet for the office drones among us, sitting at a desk all day with the air-conditioning on full blast isn’t so much fun either. Enter the office cover-up. Not a cardigan (putting your arms through actual sleeves and then taking them out when it’s time to go out for lunch, or an afternoon snack, takes too much effort). These throws, wraps, ponchos, and blankets are meant to be kept at the office for the duration of the summer, hanging over the desk chair. Casually drape your new cover-up over your shoulders as you type away, or style it a little more elegantly for a meeting. Plus, the ones we found are all on sale.
If Your Office Feels Like a Casino: Lightweight scarves that cover the shoulders.
If Your Office Feels Like a Meat Refrigerator: For full-torso coverage.
If Your Office Feels Like the Arctic Tundra: Including an actual blanket.
