Statement Jackets: A Summer Workwear Saviour

Our clients often tell us that dressing for the office during the Summer months can be a real headache. Yes, there's the promise of warm, sunny mornings as we travel to the office under unbroken blue skies, followed by balmy evenings enjoying al fresco cocktails - however the reality can be quite different. Packed, sweaty tubes leave us boiling hot on our commute but then we find ourselves at our desks, shivering under the aircon. What to wear to stay cool, calm and collected?

Do not despair! We have one wardrobe hack you'll be thankful for: invest in a GREAT jacket. Choose a lightweight but tailored jacket in a fresh palette. Keep the shape clean and the colour soft for maximum versatility. Hero jackets can really pack a punch, elevating a myriad of outfits.

Three ways to wear an investment jacket this Summer:

1. Slip over a workwear shift (for example, our new Verity dress with beautiful tweed detailing) for layering on cooler days.

2. Wear to a wedding to cover shoulders during the ceremony and for when the weather turns breezy during outdoor receptions.

3. Elevate your weekend look by wearing with jeans, white t-shirt and trainers.
