With summer well underway, your body has finally had a chance to rejuvenate from winter’s cold and somewhat uninspiring weather. Now, with the sun shining, is the time to let your creative side flourish! Men should break the constraints of formal attire, and concentrate on mixing style with comfort – don’t be afraid to get colourful. For women, it’s officially time to lose the layers! Breathe easy knowing that flowing gowns and breezy sundresses are finally replacing the days of waistline straps.
Still, with summer heat playing a large role in your choice of style, it’s often a difficult task to find the right balance between a comfortable and professional; and breezy, yet supportive outfit. Below are some creative thoughts on how to stay stylish, cool and comfortable during the last month of summer!
Summer should be a time to ditch the suit and experiment with printed blazers, blocked stripes and loose fitting chinos. If your day-to-day routine allows you to test the limits of business casual, just remember that comfortable can also be professional and trendy.
Embrace The Flexibility of Denim!
Blue is a powerful, yet diverse colour to work with. It exudes confidence and maintains the flexibility to accessorize with different accents. Jeans can capture the essence of business casual through their various styles and types of accompaniments. Here are some of our favourites, ranging from full denim outfits to double-knit blazers.
Summer is time to connect with warmth, colour and flow. My advice, just like for the men, is that comfortable can also be sexy. Lose the tight-fitting jeggings and look for the colourful dresses that have been sitting in your closet for months. Choose colours to reflect your mood (blue is confident, yellow is happy, red is sexy) and allow your freshly manicured nails to accent your style. Summer dresses are the male jeans – diverse, confident, comfortable and professional when they need to be. Here are some of our favourites:
Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
This is the time to embrace vibrant colours that portray your creative side. Why be constrained by the frigid boundaries of an office environment? Giving off subtle hints of colour through bracelets, watches or socks will give you the type of balance and edge you’re looking for.
Be bold, have fun and experiment! Remember, style is what you make it. Own your style, be comfortable, feel sexy and let your inner self shine through. After all, what’s the point if you can’t be creative and have fun with your style?
