It’s the dilemma we’re faced with the minute the weather forecast improves…how to dress for summer at work? It may be 18 degrees in the city (if we’re lucky) but the office air con feels more like the Arctic. So, how do we prep for these confused conditions? Don’t panic. We’ve picked our fave summer outfits in case you need a little inspo, and they’re all wearing RI…
The key to summer workwear is layering. Leave black denim back in AW and choose white jeans with a polka dot blouse layered under a cropped trench coat. Finish with a nude bag and simple jewellery for city chic, nailed.
Power dressing isn’t just for the boardroom. If summer dresses aren’t your thing, a pastel two piece is your new go-to. Swap your brogues for platform trainers to nail the ugly sneaker trend. (Trust us on this one.)
Meet your new throw-on-and-go office outfit. Mix up neutrals with mustard and khaki shades and add volume with paperbag waist trousers and a cold shoulder shirt. Dig out your 80s skinny sunglasses for extra style points.
Midi dresses are a must-have for any summer work wardrobe. They’re the new maxi dress, right? Nail the utility trend with a khaki tie-waist Bardot and keep it casual with trainers, a straw bag and a cute neck tie.
Need to look smart this summer? A mix and match set is ideal for bare leg season. With a luxe fabric, embellishment and all of the tassels, it's the two-piece to take you from AM to PM and won't leave you feeling chilly when the sun goes down.
If summer isn’t an excuse to make a statement in sandals, what is? With a soft brown suede finish and Aztec detail, wear with raw hem jeans, a bandeau and tassel earrings to let your heels do the talking.
