T.S. Eliot may have written that April is the cruellest month, but he clearly never had to get dressed for work on a Monday morning in the middle of a random May heatwave. The struggle gets real come summer when it comes to putting together outfits that are both office-appropriate and comfy enough to wear in 90-degree weather.

One solution that we promise will save you at least several minutes and plenty of anguish this year is the summer jumpsuit: something lightweight and breezy you can throw on and go—minimal fussing required.

Now, what kind of one-piece you settle on depends on whether you work at, say, a corporate company or a local boutique, but either way, we're certain there's a solution that will pass muster. Below, you'll find styles with tapered legs, flowy faux-wrap tops, button-up fronts and matching belts—everything you need to make the coming months just a little bit more bearable.
