Hot Work Outfit...


Style Theory: It is the big question, what to wear to work when the sun is out and it is hot on the trains and underground. You want to look smart but have a practical outfit with a cool fashion twist..the answer is culottes. They keep you cool, look professional and are extremely comfortable.

I love these culottes from M&S they are beautifully tailored, the fabric is a substantial weight so the culotte keeps it's shape and skims over any lumps and bumps. The external zip adds a little interest and they nip you in at the waist (even if, like me you dont really have one!) so you can easily tuck in a blouse or jersey top. They come in three different leg lengths - Long, Regular and Short so you can ensure they hit your leg at a flattering place, I bought the short (I am 5ft3)

When wearing culottes,  keep your top as neat as possible, it makes for a better, more flattering silhouette. A silk blouse would look great in pale pink, mint or an all navy outfit always looks chic. The great thing with culottes is that they allow everyone to see your shoes, so have fun with your shoes, clash up the colour, wear interesting heels, they will give your outfit a cool edge.

What do you wear to work in the heat, have you found the perfect balance of keeping cool and smart at the same time? Are you a fan of culottes, how do you style them? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx
