DC Style Factory talked office style at Troutman Sanders last week. Make sure to check out their blog to keep up with all of their fun, fashionable events (and more pictures!).

Refinery29: Not only are wide belts super cool and fashionable, but they also take care of (hide) an unsightly problem many women (me) struggle with in the summer (never-ending inferno): boob sweat. Yay wide belts!

Harper’s Bazaar: White tee-shirts forever.

Elle: Recently, skinny jeans were in the news for being the cause of one woman’s hospitalization (skin tight jeans were previously my summer moving-day outfit of choice. Why does one person always have to ruin it for the rest of us?). Here are five pairs of jeans that won’t put you in the ICU.

WhoWhatWear: Super cute lace-up flats for those of you whose feet don’t sweat. This post mentions sweat a lot. Until this heat wave breaks, that probably won’t change. I’m miserable.


Style.com: While you hide inside from this ridiculous heat, look forward to fall with this 85-image Fall 2015 Trend Report.

Remember tights?
