I am not native here, in fact I hail from the great Pacific Northwest...near Seattle.
I had already started working in an office by the time I experienced my first Texas summer, and I thought I was going to die. Nothing is less appealing to me than sweating in my nice things, so that first year I stuck with cotton trousers and layered solid color tees with solid color tanks and called it good. I also realized quite quickly how much my boss adores his a/c, so I had to be prepared for about a 40 degree change in temps from inside to out.
I love dresses and skirts, but a great option (if your dress code allows) is city shorts or bermudas or whatever you call them. These can go dowdy easily, so a trick for me is to pair them with heels and simpler tops with subtle feminine detailing, along with an accessory or two for that "pop" factor. I plan to delve into this more, so stay tuned. :)
These dressy sandals fit and feel like a dream, yet look professional (and stylish) enough to make me happy. The best of all worlds!
Over to you...do you have to plan in advance (and with this much detail) for your day and what you wear?
