What to Wear Wednesdays: It’s HOT!

Whoo! It’s Hot in Here! We are FINALLY in the hot days of summer, and it’s times like this when the question on everyone’s lips is: ‘how can I look professional in this crazy heat when all I want to do is wear NOTHING!?’  Actually, the more interesting question I had this week was:

“Tamara, I have a maxi skirt that I live in on weekends. How can I wear it to work without looking like I’ve mentally skipped off already?”

Most people reserve long skirt lengths for formal and weekend wear, but then there are many for whom long lengths are a daily preference or requirement. For everyone, the way to create a professional look with a long skirt is to be mindful of fabric choice (lightweight, opaque, with some drape – not stiffness), volume (low, no ball gown styles or multi-layers), and colour combinations (keep current, not ‘uniform-y’ by mixing neutrals with trend colour accents).

A long skirt is also a chic way to enjoy keeping cool outside, but staying temprature-regulated the A/C is on high in the office, and it can greatly extend the usefulness of a summer piece you may have already invested in!
