Summer is almost over here on my side of the world! You know I get excited when warm days are coming. I woke up today really pumped up and thought, I´d like to help working gals plan their summer work wardrobe. And what better way to start than with a list of easy to wear summer tops?
You will notice three themes in this article—the white tops, the black and white tops, and the floral print tops. You can wear most of them as is if you´re working in a non-corporate office, but if you do work in a corporate world, or if you´re an executive, you may find that some of these pieces will work well for layering such as under a blazer or a cardigan.
