Stay cool at work with our affordable office outfits.
With the recent warm spell, you’re probably facing a bit of a dilemma when it comes to dressing for work. You still have to maintain a professional look whilst making sure you’re comfortable and cool at the same time.
To give you a little inspiration of how to dress for work now that the weather’s heating up, we’ve put together three different looks all under £50.*
Culottes are the perfect balance of comfort and style, which makes them ideal to wear to work in warmer weather. This pair in particular feature a delicate pleated waistband and tie fastening. To show this detail off, wear with a more fitted top and tuck into the trouser.
Finish off the look with a pair of black patent block heels and you’ll have a look that’s not only office-chic but fluster-proof as well. The outfit comes in at just £38.
When the sun is shining, you can have a bit more fun with the colours you wear. Keep it appropriate for work by sticking with something tailored and smart. Take this dress for example – it’s sleek and simple in its design, and that’s what makes the bold orange shade work so well.
To combat any blasts of cold air conditioning, make sure you have a lightweight blazer to hand and finish off the look with a pair of tan heels. This complete outfit costs just £50.
A cotton white shirt is the perfect item to wear to work on a warm day – it’s formal but will keep you cool all day long. One of the best ways to wear white is alongside black, so you could try pairing it with a monochrome skirt.
A monochrome skirt like this will flatter your shape and you can create a waist by tucking the shirt in. To make sure you’re even more prepared for a day in the office, wear a pair of black heeled sandals to complete the look. You might not be allowed to wear sandals at work – so check your employer’s dress code first.
This outfit comes in at just under £30 – bargain!
