Oh boy have we had some wild weather in Melbourne this week!
Take Thursday for example when 32 degree sunny weather was broken with lashings of a fierce and heavy rainstorm that battered throughout the city; what did you wear to work if you were in on this day?? If your workplace doesn’t have air-con or you spend time outside during your commute to work, I’m sorry but my only tip for surviving the heat is to get to work really early before the sun really kicks into gear.
I feel like workplace dress codes should automatically become “Smart Casual” when the temperature goes past 30-degrees. While fashion has granted women in all codes the freedom to wear tops that don’t cling to the body – it’s a much tougher bet for the Corporate and Contemporary Business Wear/ Business Casual fellas who have to wear shirts. And blokes, if you are in a formal workplace do NOT ever wear linen shirts. At this point in time the fabric is still way too “holiday” to be taken seriously in the boardroom – feel free to provide me with examples if you find otherwise! Don’t get me wrong – I think it’s crazy that corporate offices are usually air-conditioned to icy conditions just so the fellas can be comfortable in their shirts – I know I was forever catching colds during summer! Hence why I think dresscodes should be Smart Casual when it’s really hot.
Structured no-cling summer tops are on my list of things to buy. In the meantime following on from yesterday’s post encouraging you to simplify and focus your wardrobe by culling what you have and keeping only the things that make you happy, here’s a look at an outfit featuring some of my such items:
Did you receive any Chrissy pressies that you’ll be wearing to work this year?
