What to wear for summer in the city

July is here and we’re hoping for sunshine… ok, so it’s unseasonably cool and rainy right now, but fingers crossed!

When summer hits the city it can cause a bit of Wardrobe Panic – what *do* you wear when the temperature’s soaring but you want to look polished and pulled together? Luckily we’re here with a few ideas to see you through everything from that big work meeting to an extra-long commute. Have a look below and share your favourite summer outfits with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Sharp and sleek

For those days you want to look the business and keep your cool, a sleek monochrome look is just the ticket. A pair of printed tailored shorts teamed with a floaty top or loose shirt looks fresh and modern – to add a pop of colour, try our Art Deco Chandeliers in zesty citrus or vintage heather.

All in one

A jumpsuit or playsuit takes the hassle out of summer dressing – just throw it on and you’re good to go! A long leg style works well for the office, while shorter versions are great for city exploring. Style yours up with our subtle By Moonlight earrings in arctic blue or make a statement with the Tetras in summery saffron.

Sweet and feminine

There’s nothing better than a swishy sundress on a hot day – a pure cotton style will keep you cool while crisp white will set off a tan and for pattern fans, a pretty floral is perfect. Accessorise with a headscarf and a pair of earrings – we love the sweet pastel shades of our Diamond Squares in blush pink, or go tropical with the Pear Drops in orange.
