Office not got air con? Got to endure a sweaty commute on the Underground? Yep, us too. Dressing for work in summer is a challenging sartorial mission not for the faint hearted. Not all places of work are strappy-summer-dress-and-flat-sandal friendly: after all, you have to look relatively formal and smart enough for all manner of meetings. But, chances are, as soon as the clock strikes 5 you’ll be dashing out the door to start more fun social activities, so your wardrobe needs to work hard for you, taking you from your desk to drinks seamlessly and (hopefully) without too much sweat.
We rounded up the best outfit ideas inspired by our favourite fashion experts to give you a helping hand. Because as much as we’d all rather be on the beach (or at least in a park), it’s not always possible. Welcome to your new season summer style.
