2. Don't Forget The White
If you can only add one new piece this season, make it a white skirt or pair of pants. Nothing says summer better than white, and it will lighten even the darkest ensemble. Pair it with your navy jacket and you'll be en vogue with this summer's hot nautical trend.
3. Cover The Sleeves
While many will debate this, I believe that sleeveless tops are too casual for most traditional business situations. Wear short or cap sleeves instead. If you feel you must wear sleeveless, pair it with a jacket when in meetings, with customers, or in any situation that requires you to appear authoritative.
4. Lose The Jacket
5. Put Up Your Hair
One of the hottest trends in Hollywood right now is the upswept 'do. It's elegant, sophisticated, and best of all, cool! If you have medium or long hair, this is one trend you can get behind and look both polished and professional to boot.
Buns, French twists, and knots are all hot now, and will keep you from overheating in sweltering temps. Don't know how to create a French Twist? Check out these step-by-step instructions at HairBoutique .
Whatever you do, remember that regardless of how hot it gets or what others you work with wear, you represent both you and your organization. Don't forego professional business attire to keep cool. Instead, think of cooler, warm-weather alternatives that allow you to dress appropriately without sacrificing your credibility.
