Chatting to Jim on how to do hot Summer dressing in the office workplace. Especially if you are client facing.
How to stay cool but still look appropriate for your company brand and ethos. No flip flops, bra straps, etc.
However if you work within the media or for a young IT or techi company then anything goes. @bbcradiolondon

Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair.
Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.
Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…
Even after a leg amputation Frida remained a true to her own unique personal style, customising her prosthetic leg with a stylish decorated boot.
Frida’s mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time.
She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon “everything’s rosy” lipstick and red nail varnish.
Some of Frida Kahlo’s dresses. What can I say but how fabulous!
This is her house where she lived with her husband Diego Rivera the Mexican muralist.
