Figuring out what to wear to work shouldn’t be a bore. To make your weekdays easier, welcome to Business Casual. Every Wednesday, we’ll highlight the best office-appropriate clothes, whether it’s for the job you have or the one you want.
Summer at the office is a tricky time. Everyone’s feeling relaxed and the weather’s so hot that most places let their dress codes slide a bit. Those work-appropriate clothes in sober shades of gray, black, and navy suddenly seem too stuffy when the sun is shining brightly. That’s where a fun, patterned skirt comes in — a full, calf-skimming one is stylish and professional but feels appropriately festive this time of year. Plus, since they’re so eye-catching you don’t have to do much styling. Tuck in a button down or add a sleeveless top plus some heels or sandals and you’re ready to face the day. The best part? Almost all our favorites are on major sale right now. Scroll ahead to check them out.
