Our guide to Summer Workwear

With the warmer months well and truly upon us it is important to make sure you are well equipped with the correct workwear for the Summer. With plenty of exciting pieces new to WorkwearHub this season, we are here to show you our top picks and give you an insight into the best clothing for when it starts to heat up. 

It is not only important to pick the appropriate clothing so you don’t overheat, but also to ensure you are effectively protected from the sun's harsh rays. It is essential to choose fabrics that provide breathability and temperature regulation. Cotton and bamboo are great options as they provide moisture wicking technology that will keep you cool. 

Depending on the site you are working at, you may be required to wear specific clothing such as long hi-vis whereas other sites may have more relaxed requirements, with this in mind we are going to give you our best picks for both.
