6 summer outfit ideas for the workplace

Stuck on what to wear to the office this season? Rest assured - our summer '17 style guide will keep you comfortable, professional and on-trend 'til autumn.


1. Maxit out

Maxi skirts and dresses are always a winner. When it comes of office wear, versatility is key and the maxi provides just that: it keeps you cool in the heat and protects you from intense office air-conditioning systems! This floral number from NL looks great with block colors and silver accessories.

2. Be Bold

It's time to weed out those greys, blacks and browns and make a statement with big, bold shades this season. Yellow is the brightest colour in the visible spectrum and evokes feelings of wellness and optimism. Emanate positive vibes in this vibrant tulip sleeve T-shirt top from Cos.
