The morning alarm sirens and in your groggy 5am (OK 6am) haze the only indicators of the day to come are the orange glare of early sunlight, and the all too familiar onslaught of uncomfortable humid air.
It's going to be a hot one.
When you're dealing with temperatures that feel something like 30° in the shade (add an extra 10° for that super fun bus and train commute) the motivation to stay comfortable while pulling off something akin to professional attire, wares paper thin. I'm hear to tell you, or sort of console you, that it is possible, but you need to make preparation your good friend. Keep it light with fabrics the breathe and accessories that work their magic to doll up an everyday t-shirt.
Take notes on these three smouldering summer work looks you can pull off on any summer morning- no sweat.
