There needs to be a happy medium which allows you to look chic whilst also keeping you cool and still pulling off that polished corporate sense of style.
Here we take a look at the top 5 summer office looks which will keep you feeling fresh all day and still look ready to take on important business meetings.
1. Monday Blues
A stylish pencil skirt, cotton blouse, flat pumps or peep-toe heels.

2. Tailored Tuesday
