Turn up the heat in summer's hottest hue
When the temperature rises, it can be tough to look pulled together without layering or over-accessorizing. Stick with simple pieces in a head-to-toe hue – then add some sort of contrast – for a bold statement.
A classic baseball tee is the perfect foil to a fitted pencil skirt. The matchy color scheme and shiny heels keep the look polished enough for the office.

Contrasting scale and styles of patterns – like the organic heart shapes in the shirt and the geometric dashes on the pants – play off of each other to create a unique but sophisticated look. A foolproof way to mix prints: match a color in one print to a color in the other print.
Tone down a pair of fancy pants with a plain, crewneck tee. With this much color and pattern, you don’t need to go overboard with accessories – an oversized watch or a pair of specs is plenty.
