Now that it’s summer, many may be feeling that their wardrobes are more limited. Once a new season hits, it’s inevitable that a large chunk of your wardrobe becomes obsolete. For summer especially it can feel as if you have nothing left to wear or at least very little compared to your winter or fall wardrobe. The question always is, how do you look professional without overheating in a suit?
At Michael Thomas Custom Clothiers, we can help you by creating custom outfits that will keep you not only cool in the summer but remain professional and feeling at the top of your game. We know that looking your best can help you have confidence and feel great at work. That’s why we want to help you put your best sartorial foot forward this summer.
4 Ways to Stay Cool and Looking Great This Summer
Embrace Breathable Fabrics
Natural fabrics like cotton or linen breath more, allowing you to survive the wave of heat when you get into your car in the morning for work or navigate the hot streets of your city for lunch. These fabrics just feel less restrictive and allow for more airflow so why not use them for a tailored top or loose pant?
Go with a Shorter Hemline
This season, we recommend putting your longer skirts back into storage. Instead, we invite you to try a knee length pencil skirt or flowy mid-length skirt. That way you can beat the heat while still looking feminine and professional. Plus, remember that some extra tailoring can help add a professional and incredibly classy feel to any outfit.
Have a Little Fun with Lighter Colors
One of the more exciting parts about summer is the bright, fun colors you can now wear. You can trade greys, browns, and blacks for summery oranges, pinks, and bright whites to add more color and light into your wardrobe. Plus, these colors will be able to keep you feeling cooler as you head out of the office to your favorite lunch spot during these hot summer months.
Change the sleeve length
Ladies, you can go with a sleeveless button down blouse. Or, gentlemen, choose a short sleeve dress shirt over the long sleeve ones hanging in your closet. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference just that one change can make. You can even stop by our store in D.C. to get one of your sleeve lengths customized to the exact length you would like. Just give us a call to make an appointment or swing by the store when you get a break from work.
