Workwear for the fashionable woman can be tricky. You want to look professional but also on-trend, while still being feminine and unique. Plus, Hong Kong summers don’t make this task any easier — the sweltering heat makes any sight of sleeves or pants a haunting nightmare. So, we have found this easy-to-pull-together summer workwear ensemble for your consideration. The combination of a light midi skirt, tailored vest and brogues — as seen in Mango’s Spring Summer 14 collection — is a fine harmony of elegance, enticement and office-appropriateness.
A calf-length pleated dress and a cropped peplum top are two major ingredients for a winning outfit formula, yet individually they are versatile enough to shine too: The tailored top will make a great addition to your weekend wardrobe when combined with denim shorts and gladiator sandals; while the skirt can be paired with heels and a leather crop top for a glamorous evening look.
