    Internship Etiquette: Sweltering Summer Style

Source: thefashionwatch.com

By now, we all know the basic commandments of internship dressing - black is reliable, comfortable shoes are a must, can’t-bend-down hemlines are a no-go… But what’s the dress code when the weather’s too hot to handle? Ahead, our round-up of favourite failsafe outfit ideas that’ll have you remaining put-together without melting into a stylish little puddle.

Think linen
Look at your usual wardrobe staples - a white shirt, shift dress, boxy tee, A-line skirt - and start shopping for them in linen. A natural fabric with breathable, cooling properties, linen is everything you want to be wearing when the temperature skyrockets, and brings an element of considered ease to any ensemble. Just be sure to keep a steamer or iron on handy in the mornings… Creases still aren’t cute, no matter how hot it is outside.

Strategic sleeveless
Even the heaviest of winter staples - hello, trench coat! - can be made warm weather friendly sans sleeves. Now, we’re not suggesting literally snipping away the sleeves of your beloved coat (unless, of course, you’re into that), but search for sleeveless versions of your wardrobe go-tos. A sleeveless trench pulls together even the simplest of combos, while luxurious silk tanks and airy shirt-dresses keep you cool without causing side-eyes from HR.

Meshin’ around
Whether you’re a bonafide gym junkie or simply worship at the altar of athleisure, there’s no denying that mesh is a saviour when sweat’s involved. Feather-light, breathable and literally constructed with tiny ventilation holes, mesh is perfect for inviting that sweet summer breeze while still nodding to style. If your internship errs on the buttoned-up side, choose ultra-fine mesh fabrics that appear almost opaque.

Slide on in
Toe the line between comfortable and casual with a pair of sartorial-minded slides, sandals or mules. Cage straps and closed toes temper the typical off-duty vibe of a pair of summer shoes, while embellishments and premium materials show you still mean business. Opt for lightweight sneakers or cut-out boots if closed-in shoes are an essential part of the dress code.
