Four summer workwear ideas

The weather is definitely warming up and as much as we wish we could lounge in the sun all day, unfortunately, in the summer we still have to go to work. So what is appropriate workwear in the summer? We’ve come up with four key pieces you should have in your summer work wardrobe to keep you cool in the warm weather whilst still looking totally professional.

Lightweight trousers

Trousers made from lighter materials can be a saviour in the warmer months. A looser cut will be much more comfortable than tight trousers, and you can even pair them with a sleeveless blouse to complement your summer look. Flat shoes look perfect with linen trousers too, adding an extra level of comfort to your warm weather style.

Cotton shirts

Natural fibres are the ultimate in summer workwear because of their clothing properties. A cotton blouse should be a staple for your work wardrobe. They look professional as well as keeping you cool throughout the day. Peasant style cotton button-ups pair nicely with trousers or skirts and are still crisp enough to wear to the office.

Sleeveless dresses

Sleeveless and maxi dresses are the perfect warm weather staple for the workplace. There are new prints every season that you can mix and match with different blazers if your office likes to have the air conditioning on full blast. To see this season’s latest maxi dress prints, check out Accessorise your sleeveless dress with a cross-body handbag and some neutral coloured flat pumps.

Wrap tops

The ultimate in summer tops is the classic wrap top. This staple of summer style looks amazing with trousers or skirts, and has just enough of a professional look for the office as well as keeping you looking chic. For summer 2019 the kimono style wrap top has been rocking the fashion runways, and is a brand new summer style top that is amazing for the office. Plus, you can repurpose it for the night time and pair it with your favourite skirt ready for date night.

Now you’re ready for work whatever the weather. Just make sure to plan out an outfit that keeps you cool and comfortable as well as being professional and chic at the same time. Stay cool and always look on trend.
