3 Summer-Friendly Work Outfits For Less Than ?50

Dressing for work in the Summer can be a real challenge.


We need to look smart and professional, but the days are hotter, we want to stay cool and there’s always that added potential for post-work G&Ts that the Summer brings.

Bearing in mind that Summer in this country is only about 10 minutes long, so while it makes sense in investing in warmer, high quality pieces that we know will take us from September to May, we can keep the lighter Summer capsule wardrobe less taxing on the budget.

A muted palette?and midi length make this dress perfect for a conservative office. The jersey is a nice stay-cool, comfy fabric choice that also gives a contemporary feel.

Jersey dress, €34.99 at H&M

Wear with a smart shoe like these mules.

Peep-toe mules, €9.99 at H&M

And add a touch of interest with accessories.

Earrings, €3 at Penneys

This check shift dress is slightly edgier, with nice detailing in the back but the length keeps things work appropriate.

Dress, €12 at River Island

Ankle boots make for a sharp foil for the slouchy fit of the dress.

Boots, €19 at Penneys

Add a sleek’shopper to complete the look.

Bag, €16.99 at Parfois

A long sleeve, light, drawstring dress is a really solid Summer basic that can be dressed up or down depending on how you style it.

Dress, €24.99 at New Look

These chic cutout sandals would also beautifully complete loose trousers or a midi skirt and the nude hue is always a flattering choice.

Laser-cut sandals, €29.95 at Mango
