A SHORTS SUIT
Tailoring is a safe bet whatever the weather, sure to stay crisp even as you wilt in the heat. Right now the shorts suit is having a fashion moment, so it’s never been easier to find the perfect one for you. Style with a simple white tee and instantly elevating, barely-there sandals – just make sure that the shorts don’t sit too far above your knee if you’re planning to head into the boardroom.
A LINEN SHIRT
Does your summer wardrobe even exist if it isn’t packed out with linen? It’s endlessly versatile, just as appropriate in a meeting as by the beach, and slides effortlessly into any wardrobe. Day to day, reach for a classic white shirt and pair it with tailored wide-leg pants in a neutral shade, adding fashion flair with a standout handbag and a pair of slingbacks.
AN EFFORTLESS MIDI DRESS
When it’s hot outside you want getting dressed to be as fuss-free as possible, which is why the midi dress is the go-to for discerning dressers everywhere. Choose one that chimes with your personal style – Agnona’s tan shift is a minimalist’s dream, but color and print would work as well – then add a pair of block-heeled sandals and some chunky gold jewelry. An elevated basket bag will bring a carefree air to your sophisticated look, too.
A MAXI SHIRT DRESS
Just because you’re not by the beach doesn’t mean you can’t inject some bohemia into your look – just make sure to keep it balanced. Throw on an airy-fairy maxi dress like this one from Arje and give it some urban polish by adding slick black leather accessories. A pair of wear-with-everything gold hoops will give the perfect finishing touch.
A LIGHTWEIGHT JUMPSUIT
You’ll know already that jumpsuits are a wardrobe no-brainer; as easy as your closet is likely to get. A lightweight black one is the perfect choice for the summer months – make sure you choose one with a relaxed fit to keep you cool then roll the sleeves and unbutton it as low as is appropriate. Pair with slingbacks and a timeless shoulder bag for instant easy elegance.
