Dressing for the new and warmer working season can be a confusing and unfamiliar task. Many have spent the majority of this year confided to working from their homes, dressed in loungewear or sweats (same). However, as the country eases back into a slow pace of normality, many have returned to office life, full of new flexible working hours and bright human interaction.
To inspire your wardrobe for the outside world this season, we’ve rounded up our favourite workwear essentials for summer.
MARQUES’ ALMEDIA ReM’Ade patchwork boyfriend jeans
To be worn with a boxy, not-too-oversized shirt and loafers for a free-flow and ultra-relaxed look.
ACNE STUDIOS Knee-length shorts
I’m a firm believer in a tailored knee-length black short. This lends perfectly to be paired with either a matching blazer, white tank top or classic t-shirt.
OLIVIA LILA LAHOOD Pant Suit
You will always be a winner in a coordinating vintage suit. For a summer update, wear with open-toe slides and a French inspired basket bag.
RAEY Textured Twill Maxi Skirt
For a minimalist and sleek sense of ease. A low-rise heel and long t-shirt is all you need to complete.
Albus Lumen Sar Crochet Double Pocket Shirt
An oversized natural linen shirt is a must for summer workwear. For an interesting point of difference, this style from Albus Lumen features double crochet pockets to heighten the edge. Layer over tailored trousers and thin sandals.
CASHMERE IN LOVE Mira Bike Shorts
Yes bike shirts are still a thing, and yes you can wear them to work. Either with a blazer, or oversized shirt and great earrings.
PROENZA SCHOULER Wrapped Stripe Poplin Shirt Dress
I’m sure you’re starting to sense a theme here… Oversized shirting is the one. In crisp cotton with a flattering silhouette, this utilitarian vibe means business.
CHRISTOPHER ESBER Double Belted Pinstripe Trouser
Basically the coolest pant. Double layered detachable belt, with a relaxed tailored fit. To be worn with a tank and kitten heels.
OROTON Silk Ocean Shell Blouse
I’ve yet to come across a party shirt that doesn’t bring the good vibes. Because it’s summer, a print is just so welcome and still office appropriate. Alongside tailored trousers or shorts and you’re basically good to go – top your day off with a beachside cocktail afterwards.
AGOLDE Rio Zora Denim Playsuit
Double denim is the gift that keeps on giving. Playsuits and jumpsuits are the easiest wardrobe workwear staple to own, offering a completed look without the hassle everytime.
