Grab of the Week: a breezy open-back blouse for Toronto’s long, hot summer days

“How am I supposed to get dressed for work when it’s too hot for clothes?” This is a style question we’ve been asked one too many times in the midst of summer’s hot hot heat. Looking easy, breezy and beautiful actually isn’t so easy when dealing with sticky humidity and high temperatures in Toronto.

Even harder is trying to arrive at work looking put-together and stylish (and not a sweaty disheveled mess). We bring this up now because if you don’t stock up on the right pieces in advance, you’ll be left kicking yourself in front of bare racks.

A key piece for summer is a sharp button-up blouse with the right cut outs that allow for, well, ventilation. From bike ride to office, this pleated open-back blouse by TFNC London will keep you cool and looking cute.
