As the sun becomes brighter, and the air becomes warmer, the more you want to just yank off that pesky tie, rip off that button up and plunge into the nearest body of water (even in the dirty Toronto lakes). Sometimes, the air conditioning in the office just doesn’t hit the spot, and you just want to let your skin breathe. Unfortunately, you have to put away the Birkenstocks, because sandals are an office attire no-no.
So, what can you wear that’s both comfortable and professional?
If you want to look professional but don’t want to overheat and die at the office, you should opt for lighter materials such as cotton and linen. Maybe go for the lightweight collared shirts and chinos, and some loafers.
Like the guy in the picture, he’s got the right idea. The trick is to look polished. Maybe keep the shirt tucked in and opt for a long pant instead of cut-offs (remember: light materials!).
Also, it’s Summer! Don’t be shy to pop some colour into your wardrobe. Khaki’s come in all different colours, and they are very light and comfortable to wear. You can pair them with a light, but form fitting blazer. They are breathable, fashionable, and you can show off that sweet Summer bod (do you even lift bro?!).
