How To Wear A Business Casual Capsule Wardrobe This Summer

It’s Time To Appreciate A Business Casual Capsule Wardrobe For The Warmer Days Ahead

Business Casual dress is less formal than Business Smart.
In many offices and work places today, a Business Casual style has become ‘the norm’.
Nevertheless, wearing Business Casual still needs to communicate professionalism and a businesslike appearance.

CWC style tip
: The phrase Business Casual still starts with the word Business.

Indeed when it comes to comfort, you’ll find that once the temperature rises, natural fibres such as silk, cotton and linens come to the fore.
They take precedence and feel cooler, if not kinder, on the skin.


Linen is like marmite!

Yes this is the time of year when linen resurfaces.
It’s rather like marmite: you either love it or hate it.
I happen to love both!

Those of you living in warmer climes will no doubt appreciate the purity of linens, cottons and silks in comparison to synthetic fibres.

Those of us living in cooler climes often have some hesitation towards linen but typically have a choice of pure fabrics or can take advantage of some wonderful fabric blends.

Linen is frequently mixed with silk, cotton or viscose which makes it feel more drapey, look more sophisticated and is easier to wear (and indeed to iron. Ahem!)

7-Piece Business Casual Capsule Wardrobe

This easy Business Casual capsule wardrobe consists of 7 pieces plus accessories.
I’ve chosen Summer fabrics of linen, linen blends, silk and cotton mixes.

It’s Business Casual dressing with comfort and style.

I’ve chosen a colour palette of navy, grey and ivory with pops of energy from spot yellow ochre and a splash of silver grey.
