Dressing for work doesn't have to be a drag this summer. Channel an effortlessly cool vibe when you pair go-to, ankle-length skinny jeans with a crisp, striped blouse and sporty slides. The trick to making this outfit look polished for work -- even if you're the boss -- is carrying a structured satchel that means business. After five, you can ditch the bag in your trunk and carry a wallet, to look ready for cocktails on a patio.

Dress Up White Jeans With Accessories

White skinny jeans are as much a summer staple as ice cream. This summer, take your daytime style to the next level when you wear slim white jeans with a long, dark tunic. I love the top pictured here, which can be worn regularly or pushed down to show off suntanned shoulders. Add a pop of color with a pretty silk silk scarf tied around your neck. Finish your chic summer outfit with strappy sandals in beige or brown.

Here's another example of how a flash of skin on top, can help to balance a relaxed jeans silhouette on the bottom. If you've got a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans in your closet, try wearing them this summer with a top that reveals your shoulders. Again tucking in your top is key, so your figure doesn't get lost in looser-shaped separates.
