Office-Friendly Summer Fashion

Jul 24, 2018

Without serious AC, traditional office wear can feel suffocating. And while office dress codes are slowly loosening, there are thankfully many fashion trends that work well in the summer office setting. If you want to look chic and stay cool at work this season, Timbercreek has some on-trend suggestions for your summer wardrobe.

Summer Office Attire

Billowy Blouses

White is in, light, reflective, and airy, white helps hide sweat, and keep you cool. Billowy blouses with puff-sleeve trim are a hip and practical option, while classic button downs are cooling and look killer. Going big helps allow for plenty of airflow on humid summer days. Learn more.

Wide Leg Pants

Cropped wide-leg pants are an easy, trendy, and practical answer to both looking sophisticated and professional in summer. Go for whites, tans, and neutrals to stave off sun and heat. Read more.

Pastels and Neutrals

From pencil skirts to capris, blouses, and button-ups -- neutrals are big this summer. Look for lightweight cotton and polyester, tans, light blues, mustards, and seafoams -- they all have cooling qualities. Learn more.

Short Sleeves

For men a women alike, short sleeve button ups are priceless in summer. Both patterned and plain variants are popular, and offer much needed cooling qualities in the heat of summer at work. See more.

Chinos and Paratroopers

For men we're seeing all kinds of chino and paratrooper styles for pants this summer.  From standard cuffs to stretchy ankle bands, and a swath of colors from tan to mustard and beyond. Chinos offer a cool alternative to jeans and standard suit pants. Check it out.

Linen suits

This summer is seeing an explosion of lightweight linen suits and pant and jacket ensembles for men. Potentially the perfect mix of fashion and function, linen is lightweight and breathes well in heat. It also looks and feels formal yet relaxed,and making it the perfect fabric for a hot summer.
