Simple Rules for your Business Casuals
Go for Unlined Outerwear
I know for those of you, whose office dress code includes your office blazer can’t give up on it directly. But here is the simple trick to rejig your office dress code. Let’s make it more comfortable and dry during the
There are obviously high chances that the fabric of your blazer lining has a high percentage of acrylic tissue. So, wearing lined clothes is like wearing two additional layers on your top. And thus making a total of 3 layers on your bust and arms instead of two!!
So, business casual women, now would you call it right clothing for summer?
Unlined blazers generally have softer lines, due to their lighter weight. So, they’ll help you to stay comfortable and trendy under the midday heat.
Wear Natural fabrics
When you have to simultaneously deal with the dress code and hot climate, opt for natural, breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, silk, summer cashmere and natural woven fabrics.
In some cases, like for linen clothes which tend to wrinkle easily, a good blend of natural and acrylic will make them more enjoyable and polished.
Wear Light Colours
Your wardrobe for business casuals is not supposed to be built around only regular colours like black, navy blue and red.
In summer go for lighter colours. The surface of light colour clothes reflects the sunlight heat instead of absorbing it. Choose neutral colours for your outerwear so you can juggle with the colours of shirts and tops. Two to three neutral blazers or suits would be enough to allow you to create different outfits.
Imagine you have 3 mismatching suits in your wardrobe. No worries you can convert them into 9 basic combinations to play with adding different tops, shoes and accessories. Isn’t it great?
Wear Soft and Wide Clothes
Here I’m talking about high waist, sleek and polished palazzo pants, wide leg pants or straight leg pants. These options look amazing on business casuals for women summer outfits.
If they’re made of fine cotton blends or crape fabric, you would be the perfect looking woman. And representing what summer business casuals should be.
Choose your footwear wisely
Try that you can always go for elegant perforated shoes for the office no matter whether you love tiptop heels or your flats, you’ll always have your feet breathing, and you’ll also be looking amazing and stunning!!

Give some time to yourself every weekend for grooming. Go for a pedicure, manicure, waxing and eyebrow tweezing. Brush and floss your teeth before leaving for work. Always use a mouthwash to kill the chances of bad breath.
