The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and we’re sweating just thinking about humidity. We love summer! No really, we do, but only when we’re prepared with the appropriate outfit. And that doesn’t have to mean showing up to the office in bike shorts and a spaghetti strap tank (admittedly, HR likely won't approve of that move).
Instead, might we suggest just wearing linen? Rocking the natural, woven fabric is practically like walking around as a human AC unit. This is the only way to wear a suit and (gasp!) a long-sleeve top in 100 percent humidity. It’s the quintessential material of summer for a reason—linen is totally breathable, making it feel like you’re wearing practically nothing at all (but is actually much more, um, office-appropriate). Ready to get on the linen train? Here are 12 easy, breezy pieces to keep you cool now…and through all of summer’s dreaded heatwaves.
