Dressing for the office in warm weather during the summer months can prove challenging. It is important to remain chic and comfortable whilst adhering to appropriate dress codes.
Here are our style tips to ensure you remain cool and effortlessly elegant in your summer workwear. Avoid that early morning dilemma of, ‘what to wear to work in the summer?’
- Firstly a white shirt is a wardrobe staple. This timeless piece will be a necessity all summer long. Our Maggie Silk Shirt is the perfect twist on this signature design with the floral detailing on the plackets. Pair with the wide-legged trouser for a luxurious and elegant silhouette for those warm days.
- Keep the fabrics lightweight and fluid. The Fitted Silk Shirt is cut in a beautiful silk crepe de chine. This is perfect for comfort and breathability. The natural properties of silk allow the fabric to work with our bodies allowing heat to easily pass through the fibres. This keeps us cool and comfortable from 9-5 no matter how high the mercury rises.
- Opt for natural and pastel shades, lighter colours reflect the light rather than absorbing it like black and dark colours. The Rose Silk Midi Skirt Silver is our favourite pick for versatile summer skirt. This can be paired with a variety of different SCD silk tops offering an array of summer workwear outfits. Opt for the timeless Silk Bow Blouse or Classic Silk Top for an effortless 9-5 look.
- Have a go-to shirt dress. This requires minimal thought or styling when running late in the morning. The Teresa Silk Shirt Dress has a fluid silhouette perfect for a busy day of meetings. This beautiful dress is the perfect pick to elevate your usual office style. Pair with a tailored blazer for a refined summer workwear ensemble.
