Office dress code for summer: a few saving ideas

We tell and show you how to replace the boring formal suits and black pencil skirts in the thirty-degree heat.

The heat usually comes unexpectedly and takes you by surprise: the thermometer is growing faster and faster, and in the usual black suits, work in the office turns into a real hell. It is easy for lucky people without wardrobe regulations to pick up stylish and comfortable sets for a working summer — unlike followers of office uniforms and strict corporate culture. But they also have their own recommendations: for example, to abandon synthetics in favor of natural materials. Fortunately, in the latest collections — from the mass market to premium brands – flax and cotton are given separate places of honor. In addition, you can postpone multi—layered images for autumn and winter – in summer, such sets cause only discomfort.

We offer several relevant solutions that can be easily adapted to a different corporate dress code without violating it and without saying goodbye to life with a poorly functioning air conditioner.

Suits with a shortened bottom

In the spring-summer collections, designers are moving away from the canonical combination of a jacket and classic trousers and offer a wide variety of skirts and shorts. Bermuda or mom-shorts are gaining popularity again, which we are incredibly happy about: they are more modest than an extreme mini, but they allow you to open your knees (which, by the way, even the first lady of France does not hesitate to show).

If the dress code still requires compliance with stricter rules, you can choose suits with wide trousers (palazzo and culottes) in actual pastel or muted sand shades.

Once again, we are betting on natural fabrics and relaxed styles, which will be comfortable in record temperatures. The most conservative options are with long sleeves and trousers. Let such a wardrobe item become an independent unit of the image in order to avoid layering. Happy owners of a free dress code can afford overalls with shorts, but we still recommend giving up summer rompers: such styles are appropriate only on the beach.

Voluminous cotton shirts and flowing silk blouses rule the ball in new collections: such a variety has not been presented for a long time. This is a great option if the corporate culture assumes closed shirts with long sleeves, but allows you to experiment with shades and textures.

Bright shades of “tear out the eye” are not suitable for the office, but laconic voluminous blouses with a barely noticeable print (for example, in small peas) or with additional details (ruffles, an enlarged shoulder line or patch pockets) — very acceptable options. Especially comfortable for the office will be the most voluminous blouses in combination with the same loose palazzo trousers or with shorts like Mulberry.

Dresses

Flowing dresses made of silk and chiffon will be the optimal replacement for strict cases. Thanks to the thin fabric and comfortable styles, you will not be hot even in versions with long sleeves and a length below the knee. The classic version is cotton shirt dresses. They are the easiest to fit into the business dress code, and designers offer a wide selection of mini (for those who can do everything) and modest midi with long sleeves (for those who are allowed a little less). If desired, the sleeve can always be rolled up.
