Ask Anne: Double-Duty Bohemian Dressing?

Dear Anne, I love summer dressing. In fact, in my dream life I wear a printed caftan everyday. But the reality is even though I work in a creative office, I still have to look pulled together. Is it possible to bring some of my love for bohemian style to my work wear?—Amy W.
Dear Amy, The good news is, looking polished at the office doesn’t mean you have to give up your love of flowy dresses, embroidery, or billowy sleeves. In fact, boho details are the perfect antidote to the doldrums of summer office dressing! My advice is to be mindful of silhouettes and keep your looks sharp. (A crisp white shirt and blazer are key.) Below, a few ideas to get you started.
Bold Embroidery + Crisp Poplin
No question, this embroidered linen skirt is the real statement maker, so it makes sense to temper the folksy flair with a crisp poplin shirt. Add a ladylike tote and lace-up flats for a dash of undone elegance.

Voluminious Sleeve +
Feel free to exaggerate: Here, this voluminous cotton blouse is really simple to style, particularly when you add a full skirt. An open toe stacked heel and a goes-with-everything shopper keeps things light. (PS: this is an excellent moment to play with colorful earrings, too. For more of my favorites see here.)
