The Best Summer Work Clothes for Effortless Office Outfits

Keep It Business Casual 

While it’s sun’s out fun’s out during these blistering summer months, we know your jobs don’t get to take the backburner. Anybody can sport a matching set as breezy beachwear or for poolside pics, but what about summer outfits for the office that keep you cool, calm, and collected? Time to put Altair in the hot seat. 

We don’t just create cozy sleepwear and chic travel wear, we create loungewear for life- and that includes creating professional summer office wear. These are our best matching summer sets that will set you up with an entirely new wardrobe of summer office wear. 

The Haley Top in Jade and Almond

Women's waffle knit shirt in jade green. Women's waffle knit shirt in neutral brown.

The button-down polo: an OG clothing item for every summer outfit for the office. Only this Altair top isn’t just any button down. The Haley top is a nursing-friendly, waffle-knit top designed with an elegant collar in a relaxed fit so you can feel composed and carefree. This top comes in two shades- toasty almond or vibrant jade- for novel outfit pairings. It can be worn as your next casual Friday work outfit or styled out to dinner with that very important (albeit tricky) client or coworker. The options are truly endless, and we would expect nothing less of a timeless work outfit classic.

The Cove Pant in Stone and Canary 

Lightweight women's lounge pants for travel in gray. Lightweight women's lounge pants for travel in yellow.

We know the secret to a sweat-free summer outfit and its name is the Cove pant. These airy pants are made with 100% rayon gauze and a drawstring waistband for all-around comfort, all the time. The wide-leg silhouette and draped material is perfect for any office meeting, team outing, or even as a stylish work from home outfit. Pair the Cove pant with any white collared shirt or blouse, or layer the matching Cove top to create a modest summer outfit full of intrigue. 

The Carmen Set in Oat and Cream

Muslin, brown matching loungewear set for women. Muslin, cream matching loungewear set for women.

Everyone’s favorite muslin set might as well be the poster child for women’s professional clothing. There’s no fuss and no thought involved when it comes to styling the Carmen set in oat or cream as casual business attire. This set features an easy button-down with a modern collar and breast pocket, and wide leg pants with a stretchy waistband. It’s uncomplicated and can be dressed up or dressed down for any office occasion. The best part is that it functions as the best petite work clothes and these are our most trendy work clothes out of our entire loungewear collection. Now that’s what we call versatility. 

The Ophelia Dress in Teak and Midnight

Short sleeve summer one piece set for women. Black knit loungewear work dress for women.

Raise your hand if you’re on the hunt for business dresses that give you coverage, comfort, and convenience all in one! Time to make room for the Ophelia dress in your summer office wardrobe. Made in a stretchy sweater knit material, the Ophelia dress is your new business casual basic that you won’t be able to live without. The sleeveless boat neck and the tasteful back slit flatter are tiny but significant details that flatter without any extra flourish. Call us the CEO of summer work dresses, because we just made your nine to five a whole lot more manageable.

The Tulum Top in Oat and Cream

Boho beach top for women in brown. Boho beach top for women in cream.

If you’re a die-hard fan of our popular Carmen set (let’s be honest, who isn’t?), then you’ll love this bohemian-inspired outfit add-on. Our Tulum top is made in the same homey cotton gauze fabric as the Carmen set, so it pairs perfectly with the matching wide-leg pants, matching shorts, or even with a lightweight trouser or maxi skirt. And while you’re putting together cute work outfits, don’t forget to admire the subtly distressed pirate sleeves, petite v-neckline, and billowy fit. As we love to say, the designer’s in the details. 

The Isla Set in White 

White two piece skirt set and linen two piece set.

If we had to pick one fabric that screams summer fashion it would be linen, hands-down. Good thing we have not one, not two, but three sets made in a dreamy linen blend fabric. Out of all our matching summer sets in linen, the Isla set is the work outfit that’s guaranteed to give you a lived-in look that still presents as professional. The fully lined white skirt is the best modest summer outfit for the office and can be paired with any blouse, vest, or simple tee. Remember to add in the button down Isla top in white for an effortless business outfit that can seamlessly transfer from the uptown team meeting to the downtown reunion with friends. 

The Hampton Top in Azul, Strawberry, and Umber

Striped long sleeve matching shorts and top beachwear set for women. Striped long sleeve matching shorts and top beachwear set for women. Striped long sleeve matching shorts and top beachwear set for women.

A pinstripe button down top? As a work outfit for women? Groundbreaking. Well it just might be, especially if you’re getting that pinstripe button down in three trendy shades from Altair the Label. The Hampton top has already made waves in the world of casual outfits for women, but it’s time to pair this timeless top with your go-to work pants and work dresses. While it sports all the business casual features we know and love, this top is also designed in a crinkle texture and has an oversized fit so you’re feeling completely relaxed even in the most stressful of situations. The best part is that it functions best as a layering piece, so if you’re feeling overheated (emotionally or otherwise), ditch the long sleeve and opt for the shorts instead! 

The Meadow Pant in Gingham

Wide leg gingham pants for women.

The loungewear wide leg pants to beat, the Meadow set in gingham is what every working girl needs. It’s a linen lover’s dream made with a stretchy waistband and pockets for the most comfortable work outfit. Pair the neutral gingham print with a fitted bodysuit and strappy sandals for a classy ensemble or with a relaxed tee for a more leisurely look. When it comes to the best work clothes for women, we say: keep it simple and stress-free.
