Heat's on: What do you wear to work outside?



I won the office jackpot this morning. I've been assigned to cover an outdoor event for three hours. Which begs the question: What is suitable workplace attire for the great outdoors?

Even in a business casual workplace, there are lines I don't cross. No short shorts. No strapless, no halter tops, nothing egregiously low-cut. And if I must be outside for long, my outfit has to be all cotton, light colors and fit loosely to capture the slightest breeze.

Can you do that and still look put together? Here's a few options:


Tommy Hilfiger dress, on sale for $29.99 (!) at Macy's.


Women's gauze embroidered skirt, $19.50 at Old Navy. (Pair with a white tank for outside; throw on a navy blazer or jean jacket back at the air conditioned office.)


"Beachcomber" pants by Sanctuary in white. on sale for $59.40 at Dillard's.

What would you wear to stand outside and sweat for a paycheck?
