Go Light

Get down to business with light work wear.
Go Light Get down to business with light work wear.

This summer, we're not only going light with the diet, we're doing the same for work wear.

Save yourself from sweat—literally. It's time to put your dark, heavy and stuffy blazers and pants in the time out corner until this all too humid weather runs its term. Light-colored pieces look so fresh this summer—a charming palette of classic white, romantic nude, elegant grey and utilitarian khaki—giving a soft dose of brightness to the office.

Also, you're surely style-savvy enough to have shifted to a light-weight fabric like cotton, what with the chic tailored dresses, shirts, and skirts in stores now.

Don't fall into the work wear rut by trying too hard to look professional. It's all about personal style and being professional with it.

Click on to see how you can incorporate the season's choice fabric and colors into your office wardrobe. Style and comfort are certainly taken into account.
