As many #workinggirls know, finding work clothes that are appropriate for summer can be a real challenge. You want something that will keep those sweat stains from forming when you step out of the office to grab lunch but will still look appropriate for a presentation. Such magical clothing seems like a dream, right? Well, the new indie brand See Rose Go has created classic work clothes with advanced fabric that'll actually keep you cool!
The clothes incorporate properties that make sure moisture doesn't sit on your body, so that you stay cool all day long.
The clothes keep you cool thanks to a jersey knit that See Rose Go developed called CoolRose. It's inspired by a fiber technology called COOLMAX, and it definitely sounds like a fabric of the future. It includes cooling, wicking, breathability, and fabric durability, just to name a few cool features.
On top of all that, the items are VERY soft. When I saw the items in person at a pop-up shop in Brooklyn, I was amazed at the feel and the look of the fabric. It's difficult to find a work item that can be comfortable while being office appropriate AND size-inclusive, so it's great to see See Rose Go achieve that in its first drop.
The designers of See Rose Go were inspired to start their line after hearing how curvy and plus-size women are often overheated in their clothes.
Available up to a size 24.
My Favorite Tee ($30, See Rose Go)
Plus, the designers and cofounders Erin Cavanaugh and Yi Zhou come from activewear backgrounds since they formerly worked for Converse, which is part of Nike. "Our designs are informed by function and movement, and these authentic insights even led us to develop our own cooling knit fabric," Cavanaugh said to WWD. "We are using this brand-new material not for performance but cut into everyday fashion silhouettes."
That meant creating two staple items that will fight the summer temps while also looking business casual. The first item is the My Favorite Tee, which is a reversible T-shirt that you can wear either as a V-neck or a scoop neck. It goes up to a size 24 and currently retails for $30. Plus, it comes in a range of colors, from white to gray to burgundy, so you can wear them throughout the summer!
Available up to a size 24.
My Go-To Dress ($108, See Rose Go)
It also comes in burgundy, and even has pleats at the back for some cool detailing! You could definitely wear this look with a blazer and heels or with some mules after work. No matter how you decide to wear it, you'll definitely feel comfortable.
