We may have mastered holiday dressing abroad, but what happens when the temperature soars while you’re at home, dashing from the office straight to summer camp pick up, whizzing through supermarket runs and planning weekend day trips? Our trusty holidaywear reliables of throw-on kaftans and swimsuits with pareos don’t have quite the same effect running through the aisles of Lidl as they do when you’re perched on a sun lounger on the Mediterranean coast.
So how should you dress when the sun shines this week? With the weather forecast showing signs of sun from this weekend into next week, we’re plotting warm weather outfits. For daytime think smart separates in natural fabrics that will help to keep you cool. The rule of thumb for city dressing is to keep your outfits from looking too relaxed – while you might want to reach for billowy, flowing fabrics you still want to have an element of structure. So if you are wearing a kaftan perhaps you wear it belted and with sleek sandals. If you opt for a flowing maxi skirt, pair something tailored with it, a shirt or a blazer layered on top. If you are accustomed to reaching for denim once the weekend rolls around, swap your favourite jeans for a denim midi skirt or dress.
It may be time to retire your trusty worn in beach sandals that have seen you through summer after summer but are looking a bit tired, instead opt for a new pair from a smart collab like Birkenstock X Proenza Schouler. We guarantee you’ll still be wearing them long after this (inevitably short-lived) heatwave passes …
Keep scrolling for some outfit ideas to see you through the heatwave in style.
An easy, breezy summer dress never goes out of style.
If you want to stick with tailoring, swap a blazer for a waistcoat.
Pair mix and match tailoring with simple black flip flops for an effortless look.
You can wear a kaftan style dress at home, add a belt and sleek sandals for extra polish.
Flowy separates will work from weekday to weekend.
Dress a white summer dress up with neon accessories.
This summer’s Bermuda shorts are chic and cool.
A khaki green midi skirt paired with a classic blue and white striped button down is a winning combination.
Layer a white shirt over a tank top and tailored trousers. Add Havaianas for a fuss-free look.
Whether you choose mini or midi, printed shorts and a button down work for a relaxed weekend look.
If in doubt, reach for all black. A shirt dress looks cool and considered while an asymmetric style adds extra interest for day-to-night dressing.
