Nothing is simpler than the single-item outfit that is the dress. However, the sleeveless summery dresses I adore aren’t exactly practical thanks to the always-in-overdrive office AC.
Lightweight, long-sleeved shirtdresses like this little Zara number are the perfect compromise for the outdoor heat and indoor chill. The bold, retro-inspired print and color scheme are the ideal counterpoint to the simple, classic cut.
Neutral accessories in warm shades of tan and gold add polished balance to the look.
And a slim side braid adds a bit of oomph to a simple half-pony.
