Keeping Your Cool In The Office in Summer

Looking cool and smart in Summer can be a real challenge. You start the day looking fabulous and fresh and before you’ve even made it into the office, you’re a hot, dripping mess! We’re here to help with some tips on keeping your cool when all those around you are losing it!


THE HOT COMMUTE

If you drive to work then at least you can have part of your journey in Air Conditioning – but you’ve still got to get from the car to the office. If you take public transport, then it’s impossible to avoid the heat. Here are some tips to make it more bearable!



The Perfect Business Tote

The Jennifer Tote in Caramel – the color is perfect – it goes with everything. Inside there’s room for everything you need and pockets and sleeves for all your work and personal bits and pieces.

The Perfect Laptop Case

Our BfB leather laptop sleeve comes in both 13 and 15 inch sizes and looks absolutely stunning with its double-sided tassel. The cream looks fabulous all year round but particularly in summer


Freeze Your Drink Bottle – drinking iced water or tea definitely makes you feel cooler – give it a try!

Carry a Beautiful Fan – keep that air circulating and look incredibly glamorous at the same time!

Keep your Hair up off your neck. Use the moisture from your iced drink bottle on the back of your neck and your fan to create a breeze and it almost feels like air-conditioning! To much hair in summer definitely makes you hotter.



ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE OFFICE

A girl can’t have too many different wipes over summer – once you’ve tried all the different wipes you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped out of the shower!


Spritz your face with a lovely toner – Let it dry and then reapply what you consider to be your office makeup ‘look’.



Deodorant Wipes – If you’ve left the house wearing deodorant you shouldn’t have to reapply but if this is quite a good way to freshen up – pick one with a lovely fresh scent


If you’ve really had a torrid time during your commute you might even consider giving yourself a real freshen up with some feminine hygiene wipes. If you haven’t tried these before then they’ll soon become your constant companion for long days in the office, when you’re going straight from the office to some social engagement or when you’re travelling.


DRESSING FOR THE OFFICE IN SUMMER

Its all about the layers. If your office is like every office anywhere in the world then the hotter it is outside, the colder it is inside! You’re going to need things that are easy to carry to work in your bag – like a stash of cute office cardigans or a great pashmina that can be a scarf or a shawl.

Let’s talk about your feet! While you don’t want to go too casual, you can wear a smart sandle or a shoe with a peep toe – just make sure you feel look fabulous. Cracked heels and chipped toe nail polish will undermine your ‘cool professional’ image very quickly. Start by getting rid of the winter build-up:


Then keep your feet looking beautiful with a regular moisturize:



We all look forward to summer - we dream of being outside and having fun and being near the water.  We don't really think about the heat and the reality of working during a heatwave.  I hope this helps you plan a little so that when the heat hits, you're ready to beat it!
