A BUSINESS CASUAL LOOK TO BEAT THE HEAT
For this post publication of how to wear our July wardrobe, I’m showing you one way how to stay casually tailored at the office.

Fabric is your best friend, doesn’t matter which season. Linen as the best for summer is lightweight, breathable and through its texture which depends on the specific weave and color. My jacket is linen and stands out while the pants call no attention to the look.
A pair of sneakers is a great way to add a sporty touch to a tailored business casual look. Paired with beige pants, it has a nice casual touch that complements the seasonal fabric. Staying in the same color family as your jacket and pants will always make you safe. If you want to have more adventures, just experiment with different patterns.
There’s a rule that floats around the several years that you should always match your belt and shoes. It may be a good rule, but honestly who has the shoes to match every color brown of their belt? This is not me. If you’re planning to have just one belt for one pair of brown shoes, why not making it medium to medium dark brown. In the end no belt needs to match with the shoes.
Speaking of rules of thumb, let’s talk the sockless look again. Socks vs. no socks arguments: If you’re wearing a tie, wear socks. Even when you’re not wearing one, show some ankle for some casual flair or take colorful socks for summer flair.
