Your guide to Summer workwear

Dressing for work in Summer can be tricky business. As temperatures rise so to does our desire to don barely there attire to stay cool.  These ensembles however don’t always stack up in the work-appropriate department. Striking a balance and finding pieces which tick both the corporate and cool boxes is key. To help you on this quest, we’ve compiled a series of tried and tested Summer work outfits.  Many involve recycling pieces from seasons gone by so you can invest in after work aperols instead.

Tip: Wear pieces slightly oversized.  Nothing worse than the mid Summer cling!  Recreate the look with our silk shirt in The Sailors

Tip: Opt for tees.  Pair them with high waisted skirts or pants for an instantly polished look. Recreate with our silk t-shirt in True White

Tip: Add a blazer.  If it's 35 degrees outside, chances are your office air conditioning will be working overdrive.  Keeping a blazer on your desk chair is a great way to combat the chill.  Opting for neutral tones will mean you can throw it over nearly anything.

Tip: Work the white shirt.  They never fails. They're a perfect way to stay cool and can be worn over and over with different outfits so they're #CostPerWear friendly.

Tip: Try a high neck tee.  They look more professional and you can get away with teaming them with more casual skirts.
