What to Wear to Work This Week: A Cheat Sheet

1 / 4

The White Vest

In the sweltering outdoors and chilly indoors that are characteristic of Hong Kong summers, it can be a huge headache figuring out what to wear. Enter the sleeveless white vest. While adding a touch of formality to any t-shirt/trousers combo, it also gives you an extra layer of warmth without suffocating you outside. That’s a win-win situation if we’ve ever heard of one, so check out our faves by Zara and Elizabeth & James!

2 / 4

Track Pants

You read that right – there is a way to wear track pants to work! Althesiure is all the rage so why not try incorporating this comfy trend into your work wardrobe? Opt for a tailored fit that cuts off at the ankles (like these from Fendi and Zara) and pair with a silky or dressy button-up and stilettos. Throw on a blazer for good measure and bring on that four-hour meeting!

Navy Culottes

Besides being a funny word, culottes (or mid-length wide trousers) will be your best friend this summer because they’re basically work-appropriate shorts. Just style them as you would a midi skirt with a blouse or denim shirt tucked in and pumps. If you only get one pair this summer, get them in navy (the most versatile colour in the rainbow and because everyone looks good in navy – try these from Tibi) and just rotate between white tops. Bonus Tip: Pick A-line shapes as exemplified in these Forever 21 pair that stop about three inches above your ankle for the most flattering silhouette!

The Shirt Dress

This final item on the cheat sheet is what’s going to help you win summer once and for all. Nothing combines ease and grace like a dress, but not every dress can be appropriate for a presentation with your boss. Here lies the genius of a shirt-dress: combining the crisp white shirt with the comfort of a shift, this is the ultimate lazy girl’s throw-together-put-together outfit. Just put on these simple stunners from Zara or Equipment, slip on some bright mules, lace up flats or sexy stilettos and you’re out the door in five minutes flat.
