What to Wear to Work this Summer
Posted on August 15 2014
For those of us lucky enough to be beachside this summer we’re free to laze in the heat in swimsuits, denim shorts and oversized tees to help keep us cool and casual on holiday. However many of us are not so lucky and will be spending the next month desk side rather than poolside where bikinis and beach dresses are best left at home.
Summer can be a difficult time to dress for; with fresh mornings, hot days, stifling public transport and Arctic air conditioned offices – you can sometimes feel like you need four outfits just to get through one day.
Creating outfits that can be adapted to the confused temperatures and humidity levels – whilst still looking suitable for an office environment (as much as we sometimes wish we could be in shorts and a cropped tee – it’s likely to get you sent home).
The key to dressing for all of our unpredictable weather changes as well as temperature changes throughout the day is layering. Breathable fabrics such as cotton are perfect for layering in the summer months. Think cotton tees, stylish summer scarves and cute coloured cardigans these can be added and removed at ease throughout the day to keep on top of any temperature changes whilst still looking great.
Maxi – Midi
Maxi dresses are great for keeping us covered but cool throughout the day. Their length keeps the wind from whipping around our legs and stop the AC from cooling us down too much in the office, but are lightweight enough to be cool on our commute – even in a packet train carriage.
The cutest jackets are always released in the summer seasons with florals, bright colours and three quarter
cuts often making an appearance. There is something for every outfit and occasion and they always look great. They can be removed when out in the sun and put on in the office for a unique touch to office wear.
