It's started... the time in DC where temperatures sore up to the 90s and the humidity hits epic proportions! So what's a girl with a office dress code to do? I have built out a great summer wardrobe for you:
- Lighten up. It's true, lighter clothing really does seem to keep you cooler! But note that light blue shows pit stains more than any other color... who knew?!?
- Check your fabrics. Yeah yeah, leather is cool for summer. I recently wore a faux leather skirt... and nearly ripped it off me I was so sweaty along the waistband! So aim for madras, cotton, seersucker, linen, chambrey - all fabrics & textiles that will let your skin breathe!
- Look for loose shapes. No bandage dresses for me this summer! I'm going for more flowy, with wider pants and flared skirts and dresses.
