While we love nothing more than hot summer days, hot summer days when you've got to go to work can be sweaty and uncomfortable. These 10 key pieces will help you keep cool and look stylish all at the same time.
1. Tailored Shorts
Along with strapless tops and flimsy dresses that reveal too much, denim cut-off shorts are a definite no-no when it comes to work dressing in summer. Instead, opt for a pair of beautifully tailored shorts...
2. Linen Shirts
Linen is as breezy as it is easy to style for work (and beyond).
3. Black Slips
The black slip is the perf wardrobe staple for the warmer months and can be worn with or without a t-shirt underneath.
Don't forget to slip slop slap in the warmer months, even if you're only going to be outside briefly.
5. Simple Sandals
You can never go wrong with a pair of simple black leather sandals, and these ones are simply stunning!
If it's been a while in between pedicures, and you don't much feel like baring your chipped nails, then opt for a pair of airy canvas Espadrilles. They're super comfy and super chic.
7. Good Quality Cotton T-Shirts
Loose cotton t-shirts are a summer must. Investing in high-quality tees from luxe-casual brands is well worth it, and the high-quality material makes them appear dressier.
8. Lightweight denim culottes
Skinny jeans are not your friend in the warmer months. Opt for a more lightweight denim, and keep the cut wide-legged.
9. Shirt Dresses
Shirt dresses are an absolute must in it comes to work dressing in the warmer months—they can easily be thrown together with a pair of sandals or espadrilles for a fresh summer look.
Avoid any colours where swat patches are more obvious, and go for a tropical or geometric print instead. Grey is not your friend. We repeat, grey is NOT your friend.
