Office Neutrals

I wear a lot of dark colours, especially during the colder months of the year but as soon as summer hits – I usually make a big switch over to lighter colours, mostly because I can’t stand feeling hot and wearing all black can do that to you under the July sun.

However, I can’t be wearing sundresses to work every day so I’ve had to tweak my summer wardrobe a little bit in order for it to be more work friendly. Unless it’s hitting the mid 30s or mid 90s for all my American friends- I’ll usually stick with wearing pants to work. However, I found that wearing my black dress pants don’t really work when it’s humid and sticky outside.


I got these pants from Aritzia a few months ago and they’re under the Wilfred. These are called the allant pant which is described on the website as lightweight and made from a smooth crepe material from Japan. Originally, these pants actually have a white band around the waist but sadly, through travelling, I must have pulled it out by accident and lost it. BUT – not to worry, I’m getting a replacement ribbon next week and will have a new look coming with it! But hey, you get two in one- pants without the ribbon and pants without. Just trying to be optimistic here.


I have been in love with these pants!! They’re very nicely tailored and just as advertised, is very lightweight and is perfect for a summer office look. The material doesn’t stick to your skin and is very breathable. These pants are so easy to wear it’s like a dream – done are the days where I have to wiggle into my pants!

I paired it with a very simple white top that creates a very…calming outfit to look at. It’s a very put together, clean look that ties in all the right neutrals together.


The shoes that I chose have a little more design to them with the ankle bands that go up the ankles, which I think adds a very nice touch to an outfit that’s edging on the plain side- BUT NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT! By the way, these shoes are my saving grace and I’m working on a post dedicated to them very soon because they’ve saved my feet from disaster.

The shoes are still very neutral but a little lighter than the colour of the pants so it doesn’t make the bottom too heavy looking, I think lighter shoes kind of lifts the outfit up a little bit!

What about you guys? Do you prefer neutrals for the office during the summer or do you stick to darker colours?

    Thank you for sharing, love the neutrals in your look! I agree that lighter and brighter colors are so much more fun for Summertime (I’m a big fan of including colors in my wardrobe all year round, actually – and always try to instill the love for color into my styling clients also.)
