Depending on which look you want there are many suitable fabric choices.
To have the workwear touch suggested fabrics are heavy weight fabric, such as canvas, twill, panama, denim, corduroy.
For a dress-like version choose a light to mid weight fabric such as linen, denim, cotton twill, wool, lightweight canvas.
