Opt for natural materials

When the thermometer passes the 30°C mark, the idea of ​​going barefoot and in a mini skirt to the office may cross our minds. And although the world of work is more and more informal, it is still not recommended to adopt such a style of dress! But then, what to do to feel good? The first solution is to avoid synthetic materials at all costs . You can neatly store your nylon, acrylic, spandex and polyester clothes. For what ? Synthetic textile materials do not allow the skin to breathe. They create a breeding ground for excessive sweating. By wearing your little polyester top or your favorite T-shirt made of 50% elastane, you run the risk of having to change very quickly! During the heat wave, favor natural, cooler materials. They let your skin breathe and ensure better comfort throughout the day.


Cotton, linen, silk, hemp, bamboo… The choice is vast! A short-sleeved organic cotton T-shirt and a pretty Tencel skirt with a pair of braided flat sandals and you're done! Try the 100% cotton "Julie" top or the ecru "Destination" T-shirt in organic cotton ! They will be your best allies against the heat. In addition, all Balzac pieces are designed according to a concept: TPR Always more responsible. We are committed to creating quality wardrobes, produced in controlled quantities in a zero-waste approach. At Balzac Paris, our bins are (almost) empty and all fabric scraps are used. By choosing to dress in Balzac Paris, you are doing a good thing for the planet. It is also by dressing responsibly that we will limit our impact on global warming!

Choose light colors

When temperatures rise, dark colors are forgotten. Black, dark gray, navy blue and dark green remain in the closet. For what ? First of all, because dark colors allow ultraviolet rays to pass through. But above all because light colors block infrared. And the infra-reds are the rays responsible for the sensation of heat. The darker a material is, the more heat it radiates. Light colors receive less heat and also reflect less. That's why polar bears are white! They prefer to retain maximum heat thanks to their white color. For example, a square meter of white fabric only absorbs 120 watts per m². It is three times less than black fabrics. In summer, we decline our looks in palettes of whites, beiges and pastels. A beautiful long white dress with floral motifs, a pastel green tunic with gold jewelry or a light sky blue summer dress will certainly make their mark at the office. In addition, they will let you breathe! And why not bet on a little originality with a white top with yellow polka dots ? January summer dress for a summer at the office

Wear flowing clothes

When it is hot, it is absolutely necessary to avoid clothing that is too tight. Red alert on slim cuts: this type of pants, in addition to keeping warm, cuts circulation in the legs.

The Adriano jeans will look great with a little top and will leave your legs free as air. So, to avoid sweating profusely, opt for loose, flowing pieces. They will save you the unpleasant feeling of having your clothes stuck to your skin. Say goodbye to skinny pants, tight dresses and tight T-shirts. We prefer small flowing patterned, striped or plain pants or even loose striped denim shorts like the pretty little Lilian shorts . Otherwise ? A beautiful long, flowing dress in a soft pastel color or a super trendy playsuit like the Floralie denim jumpsuit made from organic cotton! Good to know: pants are not necessarily warmer than shorts or a dress. If you choose the right material and it is wide enough, your legs can breathe.

Associated with a simple top, it is THE guaranteed elegant look. white summer jeans to wear to the office
