You don’t need me, the news or a thermometer to confirm that it is hot out there. We Brits love to talk about the weather, and usually we’re prepared for all eventualities, but this kind of climate simply leaves us in a bit of a pickle when it comes to navigating our day-to-day lives (who else is melting on public transport and consuming too many Soleros?) and the wardrobe required to power through a heatwave. Let’s just say 35-degree weather is not our comfort zone (even 25 degrees is pushing it), so what is one to wear?
We have been gearing up for this blast of Saharan warmth for some time and have already told you all about the summer staples required for a decent heatwave-proof working wardrobe, the best sandals for keeping your feet cool, the breeziest dress style to opt for, what our team is actually wearing to the office rn and so on.
You might be on the lookout for some new inspiration, and maybe you’d like that inspiration to come with a celebrity seal of approval. So rather than anything outrageous for these temperatures (remember, celebs can kind of wear whatever they want when they’ve got air-conditioned chauffeur-driven cars and people to fan and mist them), I’ve delved into the picture agencies to find you shots of A-listers wearing genuinely appropriate hot-weather outfits.
