We sure have got a heat wave this summer! But that doesn’t mean your work wardrobe can turn into beachwear. Use our tips to stay cool this summer while keeping it professional. (During the day at least!)

Look to wear lighter colors. This applies to both your suit and dress shirt. Opt for whites and pastels to help against sun exposure.

Wear light material. Even if it’s laundry day that wool suit might kill you when you walk outside! Stock up on cotton and linen materials with lighter weights that help air circulate more easily.

Know what your socks are made of. This is very important. You don’t want to walk back from your lunch break sliding out of your shoes. Look for thin weight socks or a pair that uses dry fit technology.
