Summer capsule wardrobe staple: the ivory jacket

Hobbs ivory jkt


Every executive summer capsule wardrobe needs an ivory jacket for Summer.

If you choose it carefully it will be your go-to piece for both business and special occasions.

With the warm weather and the Summer social season upon us,
there are plenty of opportunities to be more visible: whether at networking events or at one of
the many corporate events. And what will you wear? Will it be easy?

You certainly don’t want to be dragging a suitcase in to work with a change of clothes,
just because you have an evening event or are leaving at lunchtime to watch a sporting fixture.

There’s no changing in this capsule wardrobe – it’s that simple. And because the dresses are patterned, you don’t need much jewellery.
Just wear discreet office jewellery at work and swop to one statement piece for your social occasion.
It could be a necklace, a pair of earrings or a cuff.

Don’t keep special occasion wear just for special occasions.

Flex your summer capsule wardrobe and executive style by wearing special pieces more than just occasionally.

Below you’ll find one jacket and how it can be used for several outfits.
This jacket is deliberately chosen to combine business and social occasions.
The quality and fabric of the jacket should match that of your dresses.

The key to this easy chic dressing is to remember that the individual pieces
make up the whole outfit. If one piece is out of balance, your whole look won’t work.
