Fashion TikTok is currently in the throes of a major styling debate: What exactly constitutes an "appropriate" work outfit for summer at the office? Rhode founder Hailey Bieber weighed in on Instagram Stories with her twist on warm-weather power suiting: a strapless, white maternity top and coordinating trousers.

Bieber shared a glimpse inside Rhode HQ—and at her subversive maternity style—on Monday, June 3. The mogul and mom-to-be posted a mirror selfie in front of Rhode's elevators, where she color-coordinated with her brand's lowercase logo. Her outfit suggests blasting air conditioning and uptight corporate dress isn't too much of a concern. She styled her strapless, foldover top by Source Unknown and loose pants without a desk cardigan in sight. Over one arm, she also toted the most elegant work bag a woman could have—by Hermès—and flashed her Rhode lip gloss phone case.

A strapless suit set is just the latest way Bieber has upended maternity style conventions. Since announcing her pregnancy last month, she's attended concerts in maternity crop tops and vacationed in sheer shirts. The model has also used her outfits to support her friends' ventures, posing in a polo top by Gigi Hadid's Guest in Residence over the weekend.

That said, Bieber appreciates a relaxed, comfortable outfit from time to time. After showing fans a look at her founder wardrobe, she changed into a black sweatsuit with a striped rugby sweater draped over her shoulders. Aside from her YSL bag, Bieber's casual outfit credits are also under wraps for now.

To be sure, not every summer work outfit formula can incorporate a strapless top. (Blame the corporate dress code.) But if you're working in a more relaxed environment, Bieber's outfit is the blueprint for CEO-worthy suiting with a summer twist. Shop suit sets and jumpsuits inspired by her below.
