Pro to Party - Summer Edition

Everyone’s favourite season is just around the corner. Soon we will be filled with

optimism that can only be felt after winter is in the rear view. The smell of

barbeque will fill the air and the sweet sun will kiss our cheeks with warmth. The

new and improved summer versions of ourselves will emerge from our lazy winter

cocoons and our calendars will be filled with fabulous things to do. From

romantic weddings to after work drinks, every moment of each long day will be

enjoyed to its fullest.

Whether you are working from home or heading to the office, it’s great to have

an outfit that can easily transition from day to night without much thought. The

City Culture Collection from Olsen takes summer styling to the next level, with

natural linen essentials, neutral colours and relaxed silhouettes that can be

coordinated perfectly for professional office looks and flirty patio vibes.

For me, comfort is always key when it comes to fashion. This collection is SO

comfortable but also very chic, which is a winning combo in my books. Having

pieces that can easily mix and match is the main ingredient when creating

transitional outfits and even capsule wardrobes. As always, accessories play a big

role in changing the vibe of your outfit, so don’t forget to accessorize accordingly!

Pinstripe power!


Professional – The Linen Power Suit

Nothing says boss babe more than a power suit. This 3-piece pinstripe linen

power suit feels like you’re wearing your favourite loungewear because of its

extremely comfortable feel but the design screams business, making it perfect for


Pair with black loafers and you’re ready to get to get the job done.

Party – Understated Luxury

This polished look will turn heads at any social gathering. The pinstripe linen vest

adds a level of sophistication to an otherwise relaxed look that says understated


Pair it with a neutral clutch and neutral open toe heels.

Neutral Love


All of the pieces in this collection are extremely versatile but my favourite piece in

this entire collection is definitely the Mixed Media Jacket. It pairs beautifully with

everything from pencil skirts to jeans and can also be a transitional piece that

easily takes you from summer evenings into the Fall months. It is comfortable,

breathable, and durable, made up of a blend of cotton and linen. The slim cut is

very flattering and is perfect for both a professional and social setting. This

cotton linen shirt in khaki green is also a versatile fave and can be worn several


Professional – Approachable Professional

This relaxed business look says approachable professional. The light layers and

leaf print scarf add character and dimensions that allow you to be comfortable

while also being stylish. Pair with open toe black heels and black or silver


Party – Monochrome Magic

This monochrome look is simple yet fabulous. It is the perfect look for happy hour

or date night. By simply tying the cotton linen shirt at the front, it has given this comfy classic a flirty flair which pairs perfectly with this shimmer midi skirt. Pair with gold jewelry and neutral open toe heels.

Timeless Tiers


Another notable favourite is the Sleeveless Tiered Midi Dress. This dress is

summer 2023 in a nutshell. It is 100% cotton which gives it stretch in all the right

places. It is flowy and screams ‘Take me on vacay!’. This can easily be dressed up

for a meeting with a client by simply adding a blazer or dressed down for casually

by adding sneakers. If that wasn’t enough for you to immediately add it to your

cart, I have more... IT HAS POCKETS! A dress that has pockets is always a winner,

especially when the pockets are concealed and not at all noticeable. This is a

winner and will be heavy on my summer wardrobe rotation.

Professional – Comfy Chic

This look is professional and appropriate but also extremely comfortable and chic.

The blazer is a staple work wear piece and pairing it on top of this tiered dress is

an unexpected fashionable look. Complete this look with neutral closed toe heel.

Social – Playful Versatility

You will have to try not to wear this outfit everyday! This light and airy look

brings a playfulness that can be worn on your summer getaway, a day at the

beach or a patio for after work cocktails with friends. It is truly the pinnacle of

versatile dresses. Adding the beautiful leaf print scarf adds depth to the outfit to

give it that extra oomph with a tropical touch. Pair it with gold jewelry and white

chunky open toed heels.

I hope the City Culture Collection from Olsen has inspired you to create the

perfect versatile summer outfits. You can find a boutique near you or find these
