  • Let’s face it, our daily commute is never going to be the best part of the day, but there are ways of making it easier and more enjoyable. While a good internet connection – so that we can browse to our heart’s content – would be ideal, most important comfort-wise is our outfit choice; we’re talking chic separates, breathable layers and polished jewellery to add that perfect finishing touch.

    In a classic combination of rose gold and white hues and with approximately 1,700 clear crystals in its case, Swarovski’s Crystalline Oval Watch is the ultimate way to keep track of the time.

    Whether you’re on the tube or stuck in traffic in the car, making sure your outfit is made up of layers that aren’t too bulky and can be taken off and put back on easily is essential. Sticking to natural fibres – silk, cotton, linen – will also help you keep your cool, as they tend to be more breathable than synthetic fabrics. Style-wise, this summer is all about the denim jacket so while it might not comply with your office’s dress code it will boost your mood before and after work.

    Last but by no means least, we always weave a few key pieces of jewellery into our workday look. While the weekend calls for high drama and all-out glamour, for the working week we like to choose simple yet elegant pieces and count Swarovski a go-to brand.
