Hot weather style survival for the office


It’s a tough time of year to look (and feel) cool without sacrificing your business look.

  • Flat or frizzy hair? Wear a hat–very stylish and protects your skin.
  • Keep an extra shirt in your car.
  • Light colours won’t show clamminess.
  • Think twice before spritzing yourself with cologne to cool off. Perfume reacts with your body heat.
  • Try misting your face with water or using a handheld fan.
  • Yes, real men have pedicures.
  • The more skin you show, the less professional you look.
  • Keep a jacket or cardi handy to make that sleeveless dress or top office worthy.
  • Never show up at the office in surfer shorts, flip-flops, sarong, bathing suit, hat adorned with fishing flies, or the worst infraction of all – socks with sandals.
