The Style Stalker

T.S. Eliot may have written that April is the cruelest month, but he clearly never had to get dressed for work on a Monday morning in the middle of a July heat wave. The struggle gets real come summer when it comes to putting together outfits that are both office-appropriate and comfy enough to wear in 90-degree weather.

One solution that we promise will save you at least several minutes and plenty of anguish this year is the summer jumpsuit: something lightweight and breezy you can throw on and go—minimal fussing required.

Now the best summer jumpsuits for you likely depends on whether you work at, say, a corporate law firm or a local boutique, but either way, we're certain there's a solution that'll pass muster. Below you'll find styles with tapered legs, flowy faux-wrap tops, button fronts, and matching belts—everything you need to make the coming months just a little bit more bearable.
