From the sweaty commute to the sticky office, getting dressed for work in the summer can be a challenge.

Especially if you: don’t work by the beach whilst sipping mojitos/ can’t wear spaghetti strap tops and shorts/ have to ride on trains without aircon. *I’m looking at you, London Underground*.

So here are some outfit inspirations to stay cool yet stylish in the summer months, at work:

The dressed-down bodycon

Nothing is worse than getting blisters from swollen and sweaty feet in heels. So instead try pairing your dresses with trainers this summer.

Whilst we’d never usually wear a bodycon dress to work,¬† adding length and ditching the heels makes this night-out staple perfect for your 9-5.

Co-ords aren’t just for Casual Friday’s

If your office is a little more laid back, this is perfect for you. You will feel light and breezy with your arms and legs out. However, the square neckline and the modest short length won’t reveal too much.

Pair with edgy accessories to look city-chic; ready to meet clients or network over lunch.

Keeping it formal

Do the men in your office have to wear suits? Then chances are, they hold similar traditional expectations for the women.

Keep to something classic, like this floor-length skirt and white cami. The secret is to keep the layers conservative yet light.

Heading for dinner after work? We suggest pairing this outfit with modern heels and a structured handbag to avoid looking like you’re heading off to an awards ceremony…

LWD, Little White Dress

This look is comfortable, perfect for those with a long commute or kids to drop off ahead of a full day in the office.

The flat shoes are beautifully embellished, making them look much more office than beachwear, whilst this no-fuss dress can be slipped on in a matter of minutes.

And we love this brown dune bag, it really pulls this outfit together, making it much more thought-through than it really is.

Shop the look: Dress, Espadrilles, Bag.
