8 Summer Outfits to See You Through This Week's Heatwave

Having been born and raised in sunny Australia, I like to think I know a thing or two about how to dress for warm weather. While the current forecast in the UK is deemed a heatwave, for us Aussies, it's just another summer day. Therefore, I thought I would take some time to share my knowledge of how exactly to dress when the mercury rises. 

From denim shorts to flowing maxis, there's no one formula when it comes to dressing for warm weather. At the end of the day, it's all about what makes you feel cool and comfortable, as both factors become a top priority in these times.

Personally, I often rely on breathable fabrics and fluid silhouettes, and as evidenced below, many members of the fashion set tend to do the same. In fact, between the linen shirts, swimwear as daywear and sun-smart accessories, it seems several of our favourites have perfected warm-weather dressing. Keep scrolling for eight summer outfit ideas for what to wear in a heatwave.
