Hello! It’s summer time and temperatures are going up, up! How are you keeping cool this season? For me, shorts and tees are my daily staples as I live in a hot and humid climate all year round. But that doesn’t mean I can’t look smart and stylish! The key is to find tee and short combos with interesting details, striking colours, pretty patterns etc…And of course, accessories always add a stylish touch to your overall look.

I always like colours and prints for casual days. A well made tee in a solid bright colour will instantly level up your outfit. Avoid baggy tees and especially worn out looking ones! Three quarter sleeves project a smart casual look and button downs are really chic with shorts.

With the long shorts back on trend, this is how you can make it work for the office. Stick to the basic rules: tailored, structured and neutral colours for work. If your office culture is more relaxed, then you can opt for prints like stripes and checks (I’ll avoid florals and polka dots!). An outerwear instantly smartens up the look; try light jackets, cardigans or a long vest. Monochromatic outfits also work well for a polished corporate image.
