Seeing working rich moms like Hailey Bieber and Jennifer Lopez turn up the dial in their summer fashion, it inspires Us to embody that same energy in our own outfits. But now that the heat waves are officially setting in, we need lightweight outfits that will keep us from getting drenched in sweat on our morning commute. This is why we rounded up 18 office wear pieces that will embody their chic and polished style, but will also beat the summer heat.

Good office wear is all about elevated versatility that’ll allow you to go from office hour to happy hour, wearing the same thing, just maybe accessorized a little differently. We incorporated things like the fashion world-viral sleeveless vest style that can be worn with both (the also included) tailored trousers and heels at the office, but also a flowy maxi skirt and sandals on the weekend. We also added in things like sleek sets and jumpsuits that’ll streamline any rich mom’s busy mornings. Of course, all of the pieces in our lineup pass the corporate dress code — and even start at just $12.
