Working during summer in the city can wreak havoc on your look. With temperatures soaring in this early September heat wave, it can be hard to find the balance between staying cool on your commute and maintaining your professional wardrobe. The good news is, you don’t have to compromise your style in the heat. Here are Nougat London’s top tips to stay both cool and chic in the office.
One of the easiest changes to make is to swap heavy, winter fabrics for more breathable pieces. A lighter, tailored trouser can still bring structure to any outfit, without the added weight. Our Caramel Angel Boot Cut Pants are a perfect, airy alternative to the classic black trousers.
With their bootcut finish and tailored lines, they give a nod to summer while remaining totally work appropriate. Pair with a white linen shirt or tuck in our Stone Holloway Vest Top to stay cool, in and out of the office.
Summer is the perfect time to swap the suits for a structured dress. Ditch the opaque tights and go bright: Bring a shock of colour to your workday, by experimenting with bold, block dresses. Try our beautiful Chartreuse V Neck Stretch Dress which has a flattering, feminine shape and a sweetheart neckline, working well with a nude heeled pump. We also have it in a softer, pastel Jade if you love a classic summer look.
Both are made with a light cotton fabric, effortlessly giving you style and comfort. If you’re feeling fun, explore some patterns, such as our ever-popular Fulham Printed Dress. The vibrant print is sure to help you stand out in the office, and its floaty fit flatters every figure.
Monochrome is huge this season, but black and white doesn’t have to mean boring. The monochrome trend works great for your office wardrobe all year round, but update it with a summer vibe by wearing it in fresh patterns. Our Belgravia Shirt Dress works great as a more casual option for the office, or if you have an important meeting, dress to impress in our Charcoal Marylebone Tile Print Dress, paired with a white cotton blazer, you’re sure to leave a fantastic impression.
