We’ve Got Proof, Guys! You Can Be Comfortable In Formal Clothing This Summer

   Nitika Jain

Lets face it — as much as you want to shed sartorial layers and dive into a pool because of the unfathomable heat, work isn’t going to wait. And we know how important it is to mean business when it comes to dressing up for the boardroom. While you can’t substitute corporate wear with casual clothing, there are some loopholes in the nine-to-five dressing policy. Make ‘less is more’ your motto, avoid layers, and trade dressy, heavyweight fabric for ones that are comfortable. Even for occasions that call for a polished attire, these fundamentals will have your back. Want a summer-proof work wardrobe? Check out four ways in which you can wear formal clothing without melting in the heat.


Suit Up Comfortably


When we said ‘avoid layers’ what we meant is steer clear from excess outfits that aren’t summer friendly. A linen suit is dressy when it is well-tailored and has neat details. Opt for a blazer with shoulder pads as it makes linen look more structured. Also, go for dark hues like navy blue or charcoal grey to achieve a polished look. Accessorise with a bowtie and sport loafers to stand out.

Pastels & Prints


For those laidback days at work, style a short-sleeved shirt with linen trousers, espadrilles and a messenger bag. Alternatively, if you want to go for a fusion look you can wear black Kolhapuri sandals instead of espadrilles. Work a subtly-printed shirt in a pastel hue like pink or blue.

Keep It Desi


Admit it, nothing beats the comfort of a kurta, especially in this heat. Style a short indigo kurta with light coloured trousers and sandals. Alternatively, you can style a white kurta with dark trousers. We’re suggesting a well-tailored pair that has minimal details to help you look dapper.

Pay Heed To The Fit


Look neat in a well-ironed shirt that is tucked into a perfectly-tailored pair of checkered trouser. You can accessorise with a black belt and a laptop bag to complete this ensemble. The no-nonsense look is not just easy to style, it will also have you looking dapper from nine to five.
