Summer weather is for throwing on floaty little dresses, bikinis and flip flops and heading tothe park or the beach, not suiting and booting up and slogging it out for nine hours in a hot office.

Cotton is a go to option in the heat as it keeps you cool and comfortable and is available in a huge range of great cuts and looks this season. Cotton or linen trousers suits in lightcolours such as white, cream or paste or perhaps striped, are a cooler alternative to the traditional office suit – just make sure you go for a beautifully cut option.

Long billowing trousers and skirts are a great look for summer worn with a simple tank topin neutral colours to keep it office appropriate. Add some shape with a belt clinching in thewaist line, or go for loose waisted trousers with a sleeveless top and jacket to guarantee comfort and an elevated style.

If your office blasts the air conditioning all day, pair some dark jeans with a classic white T-shirt and a blazer to keep the cold air from freezing you.
