The sun might be shining but the work doesn’t stop. Office wear in the hotter seasons can feel stuffy and clingy. Therefore, the summer blazer is your go-to. If you’re clever about it, you’ll wear this piece until the bitter end.
This Primark offering might seem like a frivolous bargain at £30 but paired with the right things, it’s got designer investment piece written all over it. Don’t be fooled by the gold; it’s more than a party piece. This blazer will work hard from the moment you step on the train for work to the moment you take your last sip of Aperol.
Look one is inspired by the magic, the romantic, and the whimsical. Exploring fifty shades of pink, it’s an outfit that counterbalances the glamour of the gold with something a little sweeter. The simple yet classic white shirt tucked into the skirt is a great way of letting the accessories do the talking. If you’re all for the less is more approach, swerve the clip and the shoes and opt for some simple white trainers and a red lip instead.
The gold of the blazer requires high glamour at some point so where better than the office? The tone of the burnt orange tank top coupled with the 80s inspired wide-leg trousers is a classic combination. The print mules are a fun addition to the ensemble but could be easily swapped for a simple stiletto. On the accessories front, less is more. Let the bag do the talking. If you’re craving a necklace, a few layered gold chains is our summer look of choice.
Finally, the holiday look is quite simply extra. The patterned sarong-esque draped skirt celebrates hues of golds and oranges in the most opulent of fashions. The look we’ve put together would work on a city break in a Moroccan souq. Keep the white t-shirt tucked in and simple in order to let the accessories stand out. The shoes need no introduction. Alternatively, wear this stand-out skirt with a no-fuss camisole and some leather Grecian sandals.
