It’s suddenly warm and we’re panicking about what to wear to work…but here are five items that’ll work in the office and keep you cool
Linen jumpsuit, £49 Simply Be
Not ready to brave bare legs yet? A jumpsuit is about to become your new best friend! Smart enough for work, stylish enough for out-of-office drinks and super comfortable to boot – this is one wardrobe item you need to invest in this summer.
2. Sling-back shoes
Yellow shoes, £30 Next
If your office has a no sandals policy, then don’t fear – you can still give your feet some breathing space by opting for a sling-back shoe instead. Plus, by not having to shell out on a pedicure you can definitely justify more than one pair…
3. Linen shirt
Linen shirt, £45 Monsoon
While you might not be able to lose the blouses, there is a way of keeping cool and covered up at the same time. Invest in a linen shirt, which looks smart, will still go with your other workwear items and gives your look a summery twist.
Wicker bag, £25 Dorothy Perkins
If your office attire has to be smart, then have a little fun with your accessories and throw a summer bag into the mix. A wicker tote can still look classic, will fit all of your important documents in, but gives your outfit an instant summer update.
Culottes, £24 M&Co
Work trousers needn’t be boring – be cool (both in terms of temperature and style!) with a pair of culottes – they’ll instantly update your work wardrobe, still look smart and will be great in the warmer weather, with heels or flats.
