See It Style It

Keep Your Cool

“Everybody loves the sunshine…” goes the song, and usually that sentiment rings true. But when rocketing temperatures see your workwear wilting, it’s harder to love the heat. Style-wise, a bikini and cut-offs fail the office dress code; luckily our 9-to-5 curations look far cooler.

The Simple Life

Fussy designs will have you hot and bothered. Instead, look to pared-back pieces in natural fabrics, like a cotton wrap dress or a boxy shirt and billowing pants. Keep accessories polished: no to dusty flip flops; yes to upscale leather flats.

Brighten Up

A mega-mix of brights is a sizzling way to celebrate the sunshine – if you feel cool, you won’t sweat the small stuff. Stick to this season’s loose cuts: a swishy skirt, mannish shirt and oversized blazer will nail fresh dressing.

Classic Chic

Monochrome style never loses its elegance; a refined mix of black and off-white is the ultimate in understated glamour. Which means you can trade complex cuts for the simplest of pieces, confident in looking effortlessly cool.

Fresh Produce

Lightweight and breathable, linen is a sunshine staple – and a linen suit (like this ’70s-inspired safari number) is the cornerstone of the summer workwear wardrobe. Add glossy accessories and you’ve taken the heat out of 9-to-5 styling.
