We are in the midst of summer and the temperature keeps rising and rising! While the heat brings fun things like the beach and suntans, it also brings a challenge to our professional wardrobes. Dressing for the workplace can be a challenge in these summer months, as a lot of professional attire is hot and sometimes the line of deeming apparel “work appropriate” is crossed to keep ourselves cool. Here is our ‘Working Girl Cool’ outfit guide, to help you beat the heat and still look professional in the workplace.
  
The Executive Meeting
 
Tip: Trade in your wintery all-black suit for a summery, yet professional, skirt and top combo in light fabrics, paired with a blazer you can slip on and off when leaving the office for a coffee run or lunch.
