Still struggling to find that perfect office wardrobe for the summer season?
Take your cue from Kapamilya actress Jewel Mische who managed to keep herself cool and classy despite the humid weather.
At the USA2Everywhere store opening in Quezon City, which she attended on March 17, the former Maria La Del Barrio star rocked a crisp cocktail dress.
The contrasting silhouettes of its strait-laced top half and ballooning bottom tastefully combines prim and playful styles.
Its rounded neckline and torso-hugging form look presentable enough to wear in a corporate setting.
Not to mention its hemline, cutting right above the knee, that makes the dress look very sophisticated yet sexy at the same time.
A pleated bottom is a fun and breezy alternative to the usual A-line or pencil cut skirts commonly seen among office girls.
It also helps that Jewel chose to wear a vibrant color—royal blue is an eye-catching hue but is not overbearing and still looks elegant.
Finally, her choice of accessories—a tan belt, bug-eye shades, and graphic printed shoes—also add flair to the ensemble.
STYLING TIPS. When in the office, put on a blazer or a coat in neutral shade to make your fun summer dress look more formal especially when you're in critical setups like client meetings or presentations.
Wear more office-appropriate accessories during the day, such as a classic-face watch, plain button earrings, and a simple chain bracelet.
Save those statement neckpieces and piles of colorful bangles for more laidback occasions like the after-office dinner party.
