Looking for a smart summer workwear look that takes air conditioning in its stride? Reach for a lightweight blazer made from luxurious natural fabric once the mercury rises. M&S Collection’s breathable linen-blend blazer comes in a choice of three sunshine-ready colours and can also do double duty at the weekend teamed with your favourite jeans or chinos. Add the finishing touch with a pair of soft suede loafers or box-fresh leather sneakers for that first-day-of-term vibe.

If your office dress code requires you to wear a suit, try our linen-rich Miracle Suit. Made with fabric from the Italian Nova Fides mill, the textured finish is refined yet versatile and reassuringly easy to iron. Added stretch will keep you looking as sharp and crease-free when wrapping up your last meeting of the day as you did first thing in the morning.

Keep it casual

You might not need to wear a suit for work, but a casual dress code shouldn’t mean scruffy. Wearing tonal colours from head to toe will instantly give you sartorial brownie points and help to keep you cool on sunny days. If wearing a shirt is not essential, there are some other smart-enough-for-the-office options – our cotton-rich knitted T-shirt feels soft and airy next to your skin, is easy to care for and has a premium look and feel. Best of all, with minimal ironing required, it gives you extra time to hit the snooze button. Team with our lightweight chinos that can be worn for work or play, or make a style statement with tailored shorts when the temperature peaks during high summer.
