Part Two Vlio dress

Office dressing in warm weather is always tricky - you need to look professional but you don't want anything too tight, buttoned-up or restrictive. Ideally, you're looking for light fabrics, soft tailoring, classic colours and timeless shapes.

This dress by Part Two (£125) has all of that, and is the perfect compromise between summer casual and office smart. Technically there's a collar, but it's the most relaxed version of a collar you'll ever find! The silky top and matte bottom give it the feel of separates, without bulky fabric being tucked in. Add a belt and heels and you could easily wear it on an evening out without looking like you've come straight from a meeting - we love how Atterley Road styled it with silver pointed heels!
