Heatwave has struck in the UK,,, a few days of heat and we're happy, a few weeks and we're all complaining. Our Country just wasn't designed for this weather, from the architecture to our wardrobes, we are not prepared! Go to New York in the summer and temperatures are regularly at over 30 yet the women look 'on point' walking to work in their 'Summer Wardrobes' of sassy, summer, office-appropriate dresses, cool culottes and chic sandals . These women are used to having a distinct summer season every year and so their wardrobes are prepared for a summer in the city.
"But I have a Summer Wardrobe", you say, "so why do I have I nothing to wear to work?" The simple reason for this is that our 'summer wardrobes' are not really that at all, they are actually 'Holiday Wardrobes'. The difference being that our little strappy dresses and playsuits looks wonderful as poolside cover-ups but when it comes to every day city life, these pieces look totally inappropriate even in hot weather.
The heatwave may only last a few weeks so we don't want to over-invest but pick out great pieces in the Sales that have longevity beyond this summer and you're winning!
Enjoy browsing my edit of the best our British Summer Sales have to offer..
Muted is the coolest way to wear florals and botanicals. Natural shades from lightest off-white to deep orange. Floaty, airy shapes to beat the heat.
Soft shades in neutrals and the lightest chambray in natural fibes sch as cotton and linen. A polished yet easy look for weekends in the city. Pair with espadrilles and accessories in wicker of natural toned leathers.
Citrus tones, tropical prints work just as well in woven separates for the office as relaxed weekend wear.
