Trust Me—These 9 Work Outfit Ideas Will See You Through a Heat Wave
By a show of hands, who hates thinking of summer work outfit ideas—especially when there’s a heat wave approaching? I’m guilty of just pulling out the same looks over and over, as I find the process of choosing something cooling and yet work-appropriate frankly exhausting (I blame it on the heat). I usually end up with something that means I avoid looking like I’m about to head into Love Island, but I do feel far too warm by midday. There are, of course, better ways to dress than this.
Simply by thinking about the kind of fit, cut and type of material my clothes are made of during the summer will make all the difference. So instead of just throwing on my too-warm straight-leg jeans with a white shirt, I could consider a pair of wide-leg jeans with a loose blouse and sandals. This is just one of many ideas I’ve nabbed from various Instagrammers who have warm weather dressing nailed.
From linen suits with Velcro sandals to smart summer dresses with strappy heels, as well as flowing co-ords and boilersuits, there are some brilliant ideas that are chic yet practical for your office attire. I’ve created an edit of the coolest outfits I’ve seen on Instagram as well as the best pieces to shop to re-create the looks too. Consider your “summer work outfits dilemma” solved.
