We’ve been waiting patiently for warmer weather and at last, it has arrived – warm, bright and optimistic seasonal vibes are here! Finding outfits for summer has become simple and intuitive as we reach for clothes that are comfortable, breathable and will keep us fresh even on the warmest of days. A typical summer look is not hard to choose, but turning it into an office appropriate look may seem challenging this season. Do you want to find out how to combine a business look with the desired comfort and ease of wear of your typical summer style? Here are some handy key-words and styles that should be helpful in building your upcoming summer office-look!
D for Dress-Code
Elevated dressing for the office space is defined in a dress-code fashion, to maintain a visual professionalism and controlled environment for productivity. If your workplace does not enforce a strict dress-code, we can confidently interpret it according to our own style, fashion preferences and tastes. It is worth knowing, however, that even in the hottest weather the business outfit should be different from the casual one worn at the weekend or after hours!
L for Linen
The more natural materials in our closet, the more prepared we are for summer. Cotton, linen or eco based viscose are the fabrics we can confidently trust on the warmest of days. Linen has particularly unique properties – Did you know that linen clothes are hygroscopic? Linen absorbs up to 25% of moisture emitted by the body and then gives that moisture back. That is why linen outfits are perfect for high temperatures. There’s even more, linen has a thermoregulation ability – in hot weather they give the feeling of coolness and on cold days they keep you warm. Linen clothes also provide optimal microclimate in the sphere of skin-clothes, do not cause allergies and support immunological system – making it just the perfect fabric to reach for on a warm summer day at home or in the office!
C for Capsule
A capsule wardrobe is a term describing the art of styling – being able to own a couple key clothing items and having the ability to style them in a variety of different combinations, creating multiple outfits that look & feel great! These styles can be colorful, with prints, frills and other decorations, however, it is important that the idea of versatility in creating sets is preserved.Summer capsules should include airy, simple shirts and blouses, linen tops and bottoms, lightweight pants and dresses that can also act as perfect topping tunics.
