What to Wear to Work in the Heat Wave

Office not got air con? Got to endure a sweaty commute on the Underground? Yep, us too. Dressing for work in summer is a challenging mission that's not for the faint-hearted. Not all places of work are strappy summer dress– and flat sandal–friendly. After all, you have to look relatively formal and smart enough for all manner of meetings. But, chances are, as soon as the clock strikes 6, you'll be dashing out the door to start more fun social activities, so your wardrobe needs to work hard for you, taking you from your desk to drinks seamlessly and (hopefully) without breaking a sweat (literal or otherwise).

We rounded up the best outfit ideas inspired by our favourite fashion experts to give you a helping hand. Because as much as we'd all rather be on the beach (or at least in a park), it's not always possible. Welcome to your new-season summer style.
