DRESS FOR SUCCESS
Dress in layers so you can change throughout the day depending on the meeting or event.
We all want to look our best, and in a work environment, we want to look professional too. We asked Suzanna Wasserman, Director of Marketing at The Shoppes at EastChase, to help us showcase a few “go-to” ensembles for summer that will give the green light to getting business done while staying cool and looking good.
HOT TIPS. KEEP STYLE STRESS LOW WHEN TEMPS GO UP
We asked Wasserman to share her hot tips on staying cool and confident amid the heat of a Montgomery summer. Here’s how to look put together no matter the weather.
Opt for lighter-weight materials and 100-percent cotton as opposed to polyester. You always want to breathe in your clothing, and heavier fabrics tend to make this harder and often show more perspiration and wrinkle easier.
Steer away from linen during the summer when you have no plans on an outfit change during the day. While it’s cool and chic, the material will wrinkle quickly and stretch, making you look slouchy during the day.
When you’re riding in the car, always remove your sweater or jacket to help with wrinkles and any perspiration stains!
SIMPLIFY SUMMER FASHION
Keep it simple. Rather than layering with scarves and accessories, choose a simple cardigan or blazer to dress up your outfit.
HOW TO BEAT THE HEAT:
- Always keep travel size deodorant, hairspray and a brush in your car for quick touchups throughout the day.
- Keep dry shampoo and oil control blotting papers on you always! The dry shampoo will help fluff your hair after being in the heat, and the oil control blotting papers will keep your skin looking fresh without piling on more makeup.
- Wear waterproof mascara if you know you’ll be outdoors.
