STYLE CLINIC:

With David Row­ley

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Fashion -

Dress­ing ap­pro­pri­ately for work when it is 25C needn’t be chal­leng­ing. It’s un­der­stand­able you may feel that fling­ing on a pair of short-shorts, a cropped T-shirt and san­dals at the week­end is eas­ier. How­ever, dress­ing sum­m­er­savvy Mon­day to Fri­day is just as sim­ple.

The key to look­ing chic and feel­ing com­fort­able while in the of­fice is to al­ways have a cover-up. Yes, the sun may be blaz­ing out­side, but you should al­ways be pre­pared for your cool air con­di­tioned of­fice or breezy spells dur­ing the early evenings when you’re on your way home from work. Choos­ing a light­weight jacket or cardi­gan in fab­rics such as linen and cot­ton will see you through from 9am – 5pm. This baby blue Kid­man jacket by Alice and Olivia (£420) comes in a clas­sic cropped cut with fringed trims to de­liver just the right amount of chic, for a look that’s both clas­sic and on trend.

An­other trusted op­tion for stylish sum­mer work wear is a tran­si­tional dress. This mul­ti­coloured dress by McQ Alexan­der McQueen (£440) is not only per­fect for the of­fice but teamed with a pair of killer heels you’re also ready for af­ter work cock­tails on the ter­race.

Dear Stylist, As the mer­cury rises and the sun is shin­ing, my off-duty out­fit choices seem to fol­low the same pat­tern; shorts, vest and flip flops... it couldn’t be any eas­ier. It’s Mon­day morn­ing when I seem to strug­gle to bal­ance my sum­mer wardrobe with suit­able work wear. Can you please help?
