Submitting style queries to forums found in the dark corners of the internet can bring back some questionable advice. While it’s better to read our daily guides and build a steady knack for dressing, sometimes there are those topics which require quick-fire essential style guidance you can rely on.

To deliver this, FashionBeans is partnering with leading retailers, brands and industry insiders to host a series of live style Q&As on Facebook.

Kicking off on Thursday May 19 at 3pm (BST), the first in the series will see FashionBeans Associate Editor Tom Banham tap up River Island Style Studio boss and all round stylish guy Giles Farnham to discuss summer dressing – chiefly, how to dress when it’s too damn hot.

From keeping cool but on-code in the office, to dressing for a summer wedding, to off-duty outfits that aren’t just vests and shorts – expect to pick up some go-to outfit suggestions but also tips on the basics of warm-weather fabrics, fits and colours. Essentially, anything that makes it more tolerable when the pavements are melting, but keeps you looking good.

The FashionBeans x River Island Masterclass has now finished, recap all the style advice below.
