Staying warm when its warm

During the summer months, it may be warm outside, but with the A/C on full blast in the office, it can be downright cold inside. In order to be properly dressed for both the summer weather and the very different climate in your office, one has to be smartly dressed. Here’s how:

  1. Base garments have to be able to stand on their own.

When base garments are appropriate for public consumption and can pull their own weight, then you can feel free to commute in them, covering them up only when you arrive at the office.

Adea’s Bra Friendly Camisole is the perfect example. With a modest neckline and straps that cover your bra, you can easily drive, bus, boat or train it to work on a hot and humid day in just that. Then, when you pull into the office, throw on your cardigan, blouse or jacket to become dress-code compliant.

  1. Layers are key.

In order to flex your outfit to meet the wide range of temperatures, you need to be able to add and subtract layers.

Invest in a collection of neutral cardigans and jackets that can add warmth, texture and dimension to your ensembles. I recommend black, navy, gray, white and cream as well as any colors that you have a strong affection for and thus, wear often.

Also, the addition of a layering camisole under a garment that you would prefer to wear without a layer– a beautiful ¾ or long-sleeve silk blouse, for instance – can instantly increase your comfort level and body temperature in a chilly environment.

  1. Breathable and fast-drying materials are non-negotiable.

If you are transitioning from a potentially sweat-inducing environment (the outdoors) to a potentially goosebump-inducing environment (the office), then you need to get dry fast to avoid catching a serious chill.

 Demand moisture-wicking and fast-drying materials when shopping for base layers and undergarments – classic cotton may not cut it. Instead, breathable microfiber such as the high quality Italian variety that Adea uses are preferred.

And there you have it – the top 3 ways to stay both cool and warm during this tough-to-navigate season with its resulting manic temperature changes. Now, enjoy your summer in style!

A Look at the Plaza in 1907

October 16, 2019

I have always had a fondness for the storied and elegant Plaza Hotel in New York City. Back in the day I interviewed a delightful fashion editor in the Plaza’s famous Palm Court. I found the whole experience fascinating so when I came across an article about the history of the Plaza I started reading at once.

Females Have the Right Stuff

October 09, 2019

For 58 years, 89% of the astronauts have been men. And for 192 years, there were no women justices on the Supreme Court until Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. In light of where we are today – these numbers are shocking.

“You Really Need to Fight Every Day”

October 02, 2019 1 Comment

In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
