I always thought hotdesking was the art of being agile, but this summer I’ve quickly realized it means sweltering in your seat. As it turns out, feeling sticky is not conducive with work, especially as it makes it look like you melt under pressure.

There are some easy hacks to making this heatwave into a breezy affair. Firstly, swap out synthetic fabrics for natural, breathable materials. Secondly, where possible fortify your position with light layers that can be slipped on and off whenever the AC decides to start working. And, thirdly, and most importantly, invest in a pair of luxury sandals. From stomping around city breaks to kicking it in the park at picnics, footwear is put under pressure during the summer season. Investing in a work-only pair of open-toed shoes that’s not covered in grass stains and nicks will instantly elevate your ensemble - look to Topshop and Maryam Nassir Zadeh for the pairs we’re currently eyeing up.

Still feeling lost in the humidity? Look no further than these five stylish women who have made easy work of the hot weather dressing.
