Good Sunday evening, the weekend is winding down and a slight breeze can be felt every now and then. Of course, another hot day on tap which got me thinking about finding attire for the workplace that's cool and professional.
During the summer months, a lot of companies will relax the dress code with the hot temperatures in mind. Now that doesn't mean employees should arrive to work looking like they should be spending a day at the beach. If sleeveless tops showing bare arms is allowed, definitely add those to your work attire in all kinds of styles. For the fellas, Polo-style shirts or short-sleeved ones are appropriate and cool. Just match them with a pair of khaki pants and out the door you go.
For footwear on women and men, no flip flops or tennis shoes. A neat flat or wedge-heel sandal for the ladies is nice. The guys should stick with a canvas shoe that wears well with slacks. Give the dark suits a summer break and go for lighter tones like beige or even light blue. Stay cool with a pop of color and look professional at work.
