Summer is the season where clothing standards in professional environments start to slip. For a Muslimah, it can be a real challenge to find suitable clothing to wear in the heat. As I'm working for a while this summer, I need to have some smart outfits ready. Aside from a white shirtdress with tailored trousers, this is another great workwear look.
I'm not so keen on Principles for casual clothing, but they are brilliant for formal wear. This skirt is blend of silk and linen, so should be light enough to wear in the summer. Just add a neutral linen jacket or blazer and smart shoes. Or if a jacket is not required, simpy wear with a long sleeved white shirt, and maybe even a waistcoat:
Debenhams also stock it.
