Its heating up in Ireland and “experts” say we are looking at a hot hot summer (here’s hoping). I’ve put together some of my top workwear picks to help you seamlessly transition your outfits between cold and hot, wet and dry days this summer.

When you work in an office with a corporate or smart casual dress code it can be a difficult task choosing what to wear on hot days. As Irish, we are used to wearing plenty of layers, and usually expect rain. So we often suffer once the temperature rises and we’re stuck with our usual wardrobe.

Is it ok to not wear tights and have your bare legs out?

Are sandals acceptable?

Every office is different of course, but here is some inspiration for your summer workwear wardrobe.
