Cotton can be trendy, too. Designer Sandeep Gonsalves shares tips and semiformal options in cotton for office-goers:
■ Different people may have different needs. However, when it comes to workplace options, it’s best to keep it simple
■ Cotton, seersucker or linen blazers are a must for semiformal work meetings. Classic colours on these fabrics highlight a sharp and professional look. A single-button ash grey cotton blazer would be ideal
■ Light coloured cotton chinos are also a great option since they can be paired with almost anything since the focus is on comfort
■ Egyptian cotton shirts are a necessity at work as they are lighter and absorb less heat.
