Roopal Patel, SVP, Fashion Director at Saks Fifth Avenue
“This summer is all about experimentation, creating untold options for office-appropriate fashions. My personal go-to is a great blouse and skirt combo. I gravitate towards classic stripes which come in all sorts of iterations, and take inspiration from suiting. In particular I love a crisp poplin, off-the-shoulder blouse from Rosie Assoulin paired with a Dries Van Noten ruffle skirt. I add an easy summer sandal and Loewe novelty bag to complete the look.
In the summer, you want color, print, pattern—your look doesn’t have to be so classic. Experiment, but keep it chic! Summer office dressing doesn’t mean you should look like you’re going to the beach—reserve tank tops, flip-flops, and shorts for leisure activities.”
