Spring/Summer weights are too light and don’t hold their shape as there is not enough weight to the fabric to maintain crisp appearance.  Winter wools are too heavy and lofty and not good for summer heat.

Stay away from cotton and linen fabrics.  Cotton and linen both

Never wear anything sheer or transparent that defines or shows undergarments.  Garments should never be tight, short or revealing that defines shape, curves or exposes cleavage.

Garments should be fit comfortable and appropriate so you don’t look like you are wearing clothing too big or small for your body; know what a good fit is, all garments need some alterations. Merino wool garments are the best choice to look professional and fight summer’s heat.

How to Dress and Look Professional for Summer by Dick Lerner, CCC, CWC, Author of Dress Like The Big Fish

Professional Dress during summer heat can look crisp and comfortable with the right choices, especially fabric selection.  Wool often gets a bad wrap because it is hot and scratchy.  There is cheap wool and good wool, it is knowing what to pick.

Merino wool woven in a 2-ply weave that is approximately a 9 oz. weight that is a super 120s, 140s and 150s weave are the best fabrics as they breathe and hold their shape.  A good wool garment is like a thermos, keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

It does the same thing for the merino wool sheep.

There are many grades of wool, it is selecting the one that is durable, hold its shape and will always look good over time.  It is a natural fiber.  Merino wool, genetically has lanolin in the fiber, next to the skin, is very comfortable.

Merino wool jackets, skirts and pants are ideal for women and suits for men.  Wool has great tensile strength, excellent shape retention, and the fabric breathes.  Pick year round
wool fabrics for best overall appearance.
