Heat Wave Fashion

It's been sweltering here in the nation's capital!! And - even though I work all day in blissful AC - it's certainly making me get lazier and lazier every morning as I pick out my outfit! So, I don't know about you, but I definitely need some tips and inspiration on dressing chic while staying cool!

  1. Wear breathable fabrics - Cotton, linen, open knits, these fabrics make a huge difference when you're about to sweat off half your body weight. Save "summer leather" for cooler days lest you end up like Ross and his pants on that classic "Friends" episode
  2. Flowy silhouettes are your friend - I love me my skinny jeans, but nothing beats a loose, swooshy dress when the temperature hits triple digits! It helps your own body heat escape and maximizes air flow!
  3. Rock some cut outs - If you're intent on wearing something more form fitting, at least wear something with added ventilation!
If you're excuse me, I need to go petition HR to let us wear bathing suits to work :P
