Think sleeveless vests, linen shirts, maxi skirts and cotton dresses for workwear this summer.

If you work out of the office and there’s even a short commute, there’s a chance that the blistering heat will get to you.

With the temperatures reaching an unbearable number, it’s time to think smart when it comes to dressing up. Avoid layers, and ditch fabrics that are too thick or uncomfortable on the skin. Skip complicated textures or surface ornamentation that can cause irritability.

Go for lightweight fabrics, breathable styles and soothing colours this season. Shades of neutral, whites, blues and greys should be your go-to. Keep your accessories to a minimum and make sure your footwear is comfortable and gives coverage. Nobody wants random tan lines on the feet that replicate your complicated footwear.

To help you find your summer workwear fits, we’ve curated an edit of the best silhouettes that you can grab this season — scroll through the gallery above.
