Introducing the summer workwear edit by NET-A-PORTER, designed to inspire your summer wardrobe. Discover a curated selection of essential pieces from renowned brands like Loewe, Bottega Veneta, The Row, and exclusive designs from Petar Petrov and Tod’s.

When it comes to staying stylish in the summer heat, the team at NET-A-PORTER has mastered the art. Now, three experts will reveal their secrets on how to achieve a polished and sophisticated look while navigating the city during the summer season.

Hannah Cole, senior shopping editor

“My wardrobe largely consists of monochromatic separates that can be mixed and matched with minimum effort. Staples are slouchy wide-leg pants, and simple white T-shirts (they go with everything), which I always buy a size or two up for an oversized fit. A modern capsule closet is built on elevated basics that you can depend on nine to five, then dress down at the weekend.”

Maya Gunavardhana, fashion assistant


“My style is quite androgynous and I generally opt for clothes with an oversized fit, in neutral tones, then add hints of color with accessories, or bold shoes, to make my look stand out. In the summer, my priority is comfort – for work, I often wear a loose shirt with a pair of jeans or a mini skirt; for a smarter look, I’ll wear a classic white tank top with tailored shorts and a blazer.”

Lydia Zacharis, buying manager


“I love muted colors and simple, timeless pieces that I can accentuate with interesting details – statement jewelry, a great bag or shoes, or the occasional pop of color to give the outfit some depth. For city summers, I opt for day-to-night-appropriate styles, which can be transformed with a pair of kitten heels, some gold jewelry, a clutch and a red lip. I always carry a denim jacket or cashmere sweater to throw over my shoulders when the temperature drops, too.”
