Bare legs 'not suitable for the office'
Despite the smouldering sun, women should resist the urge to wear sexy skimpy skirts and tops to work, it has been suggested.

Business etiquette expert and author Barbara Pachter explained that sometimes the sun encourages women to bare more flesh than may be appropriate at the office.

However, it is easy to dress in a feminine way while presenting a professional and competent appearance, she continued.

Stockings or tights are also important, Ms Pachter stated.

"Women can get away without them when wearing slacks. A skirt without stockings is just too sexy a look," she warned.

Last year, style guide YouLookFab suggested that when pondering baring legs for the office, women should remember that modesty is the best look within a professional environment, meaning hosiery is a must.

However, the blog added that tights should not be limited to "boring beige", noting that women could choose colourful or patterned tights to add a fun angle to their look.
