There’s nothing worse than staring into your closet on a 95-degree day: You know full well you’re about to walk outside and get hit with a brick wall of hot air. By the time you reach the subway, you’re melting, and it’s not even 9 a.m. In these conditions, dressing cute for work feels almost impossible. That’s where I come in to save the day.

The answer to finding the best summer work outfits? Easy, breezy fabrics. They’re the perfect solution to your summertime sweats (sorry, but it happens). Try linen dresses, cotton blazers, and slinky slip skirts — they’re all work-appropriate options in summer-appropriate fabrics.

Another hot-weather hack…accessories! If you’re rotating between the same few cotton dresses a pair of gold hoops will go a really long way. As Megan Thee Stallion once said: “It’s a hot girl summer,” so live your best life without worrying about sweating through your outfit. Below are nine options that’ll make you the most stylish (and least sweaty) girl in the office.

LORO PIANA CLARISSA LINEN SHIRT DRESS, $2,100, SHOP NOW

When it comes to beating the summer heat a linen dress is the MVP. This bright option from Loro Piana is a great choice.

JACQUEMUS LA VESTE D’HOMME LINEN BLAZER, $682, SHOP NOW

We all know how this goes. It’s hot as h**l outside and then you freeze in the office with the AC on full blast. I suggest keeping a light blazer at your desk to throw on as needed.

REALISATION PAR THE JONI, $210, SHOP NOW

IMO a slip skirt is the ultimate day-to-night piece. To keep things work appropriate, style the slip with a blazer or a chic blouse. Transition into the evening by throwing on a crop T-shirt, strappy sandals, and gold hoops.

GANNI FLORAL GEORGETTE WRAP DRESS, $199, SHOP NOW

In my book, a wrap dress is a foolproof outfit option. Just throw it on and bam you automatically look pulled together. I would style this floral number with some gold jewels and metallic sandals.

ETRO STRIPED COTTON SHIRT, $399, SHOP NOW

For a fun take on the classic white poplin shirt, go for a button-up in a fun multicolored stripe. If your office is a bit more casual, rock the shirt with a pair of jeans and loafers.

COS PUFF-SLEEVE JUMPSUIT, $135, SHOP NOW

This COS oversized jumpsuit screams effortlessly cool. Lean into the minimalist vibe and keep the accessories simple.

ALEXIS BITTAR GOLDEN PEBBLE CAKE TEXTURED HOOP EARRINGS, $125, SHOP NOW

Okay so it’s 95 degrees…again! You find yourself grabbing the same cotton dress over and over. Sometimes it’s just so hot we can’t be bothered to think of an outfit. Luckily accessories save the day. Spice up a boring look with these textured hoops from Alexis Bittar.

TOTEME HIGH-WAISTED WIDE-LEG TROUSERS, $436, SHOP NOW

A monochromatic look is always chic, and these pants would look great paired with a classic white T-shirt or a crisp button-down depending on your office dress code.

Your everyday summer work shoe: found. These sandals are super versatile, and the neutral color and style will go with almost anything.
