. HOW TO DRESS FOR WORK IN A HEATWAVE .
Dressing for work when the weather is hitting record breaking highs is one of the many challenges us Brits face every now and then. With London being a heat trap as it is, and the tube and public transport doubling up as a sauna, dressing suitably when the weather hits a high is a necessity … but sadly rocking up to work in a bikini is not an option, and so light, cooling and still chic and professional work wear is required.
The key thing when dressing for sunshine and hot weather is to be comfortable, if you’re not comfy then the heat will just make you super irritable, unhappy and wishing you’d worn something different. I always like to opt for something relatively lightweight, something that’s loose fitting and most importantly something that lets my skin get a bit of airtime and sunlight too. Aside from the shift dress which is always one of my most go to styles of clothing when it’s hot out, I also love a simple shorts and cami duo too.
These Topshop shorts are super old now, but every summer they serve me well, comfy, chic and a good ‘professional’ style and cut. The shorts work perfectly with a white blouse or even a little cami if it’s really hot. Just pop on a little denim jacket or a summer kimono or coat and you’re ready to rumble. The finishing touch is simply a classic bag and some chic sandals. This week i’ve been wearing my Missguided suede sandals which are the perfect pairing with my camel tone shorts.
What’s your heatwave work style like? How have you been coping with the hot weather when it comes to style?
