How to dress appropriately for the office this summer

Layer? I Don’t Even Know Her

Summer seems like the worst time to throw on layer after layer of clothing, unless you’ve had Botox injections to inhibit your sweat glands. But layering smart is like not layering at all. Try a nice, light summer cardigan over a tank top, or a short-sleeve blazer over a T-shirt. And if you're in a playful mood, why not try extra-fine mesh? You can get away with wearing less by essentially wearing more. It’s like sartorial sleight of hand.
