One item they have a lot of is loose trousers, which are a fantastic staple for any summer wardrobe - not only light and cooling in the warmer weather, but they are versatile and flattering enough to wear dressed up or down, with items already in your wardrobe.

The saying tells us you should never judge a book by its cover. But we do, it is human nature. Packaging has a huge impact on how we perceive products and the quality within them and our clothes are just that: our packaging.
To save you having to carry your handbag, work bag, sometimes a laptop bag, and a gym kit it’s definitely worth investing in a smart looking work backpack.
