Go From Beach to Boardroom With This Simple Summer Style Inspo

Best of both worlds.

Summer style is at its best when it offers a degree of versatility. With a little help from the new Hush Puppies collection, we showcase a range of looks that take you on a ride from the beach to the boardroom – and everywhere in between.

The arrival of summer means casual suiting that offers a seamless transition between occasions. Adding a plain white tee or polo in place of a buttoned shirt will offer you some much-needed breathability during the hotter months.

Don’t shy away from a bold-patterned shirt this summer. It’s a balance of attitude and preppiness that will take you from casual work meetings to the beach bar without missing a beat. Extra credit for those with a matching cross-body bag.

When 5pm hits, lose the suit and embrace a bare chest and waistcoat combination. The addition of open sandals will help complete the transition from smart to casual. If that’s a step too far, keep things simple with this lightweight shirt and satchel, perfect for all your summer essentials.

When the occasion calls for something smarter, leather sandals and a loose-fitting shirt are one way to go. Or keep things chic with a classic suit, minus the socks and tie.
