Memorial Day weekend has come and gone and hot summer weather is finally here! Deciding what to wear as the temperature rises can be a challenge, especially for the office. While you don’t want to appear to be too casual (think flip-flops and shorts) you don’t want to wear heavy winter fabrics either.
The key to summer dressing is choosing lightweight clothes made with breathable natural fibers. Our advice is to invest in foundation pieces that can be layered and easily transition from the office to the weekend.
These smart new pieces just added to our collection are summer staples that will keep you comfortable even on the hottest summer days, or as Eileen Fisher likes to say, “Clothes to live in.”

2. Three Dots Red Dot Playgirl Swing Top with 3/4 Sleeves
A flattering scoop neckline and relaxed fit makes this perfect tee the epitome of effortless, laid back summer style. But don’t take our word for it, most of our customers give this coveted piece 5 out of 5 stars and has this to say:
“Well made. Flattering. True to size.” – Denise (Fredericksburg, VA)
“Good quality cotton, great fit.” Kathy (New Canaan, CT)
“This is a very comfortable Tee. It is not constricting, although I think you might have an issue if your arms are heavy. The fabric is soft. I have not washed them yet, so cannot comment on their shrink ability. Probably cold water wash and low dryer, or hang.”-Judy (Moraga, CA)
“This is a good quality top that is heavy enough for an office environment.”- Julia (San Francisco, CA)
“I have this item in Black and White and recently ordered it in Teal. The material is soft and of superb quality. It looks great with narrow legged jeans.’- Norma (Calgary, Alberta)
