How To Dress For Work In A Heatwave 

RIP denim.

Tailored Shorts

Along with strapless tops and flimsy dresses that reveal too much, denim cut-off shorts are a definite no-no when it comes to work dressing in summer. Instead, opt for a pair of beautifully tailored shorts...

Linen Shirts 

Roxana Salehoun linen shirt from Matchesfashion is our fave, but if you're after something with a lower price point, Wellmadeclothes.com.au have a beautiful selection of (ethical) linen clothes. Linen is as breezy as it is easy to style for work (and beyond).

Espadrilles

If it's been a while in between pedicures, and you don't much feel like baring your chipped nails, then opt for a pair of airy canvas Espadrilles. They're super comfy and super chic.

Good Quality Cotton T-Shirts 

Loose cotton t-shirts are a summer must. Investing in high quality tees from luxe-casual brands is well worth it, and the high-quality material makes them appear dressier.

Lightweight denim culottes

Skinny jeans are not your friend in the warmer months. Opt for a more lightweight denim, and keep the cut wide-legged.

Shirt Dresses 

Shirt dresses are an absolute must in it comes to work dressing in the warmer months—they can easily be thrown together with a pair of sandals or espadrilles for a fresh summer look.

Prints

Avoid any colours where swat patches are more obvious, and go for a tropical or geometric print instead. Grey is not your friend. We repeat, grey is NOT your friend.
