The Only 5 Pieces You Need To Nail Summer Workwear

The Only 5 Pieces You Need To Nail Summer Workwear

Insert?these five anchor pieces into your workwear wardrobe if you want to breeze?through summer in the city looking polished and professional.

A white shirt

Deconstructed or classically simple, a white shirt looks fresh and sophisticated and can help pull together an outfit beautifully. Choose a piece in a good-quality cotton, linen or silk.

Large blouse with decorative detail, €49.95 (reduced from €79.95) at Massimo Dutti

Palazzo pants

I could never own too many pairs of palazzo trousers. They’re chic, smart and refreshingly?cool in the heat. This vibrant green shade will add a real pop to your summer workwear wardrobe. Anchor it will neutrals to avoid looking clownish in the office.

Palazzo trousers, €39.95 at Zara

A sleeveless jacket

Sleeveless jackets are a great option for this time of year when you want to move away from traditional blazers but remain looking office appropriate. I love the simplicity of this black belted waistcoat. It looks smart enough to layer over a simple T-shirt.

A shirt dress

I love this cotton poplin shirt dress from Cos. The print, the concealed buttons, the wider width belt and the pocket detailing all add up to a piece?with real personality.

Wide belted shirt dress, €89 at Cos

A pleated skirt

Pleated skirts look very cool worn with trainers for weekend lunches, but worn with a pair of loafers or ballet flats they are an ideal option for summer workwear. They’re lightweight and fluid, which is exactly the kind of tailoring you should be looking for at this time of year.

Chiffon maxi plated skirt, Red Valentino, €650 at net-a-porter.com
