I am honestly not a big fan of the summer season. Putting aside all the fun, all I can think about is the outside heat and the fact that one of my favourite fashion tricks, and I am referring to layering, becomes such a headache.
But you don’t need to give up layering once the cold season is over. Layering is a way to make your outfits more interesting and your wardrobe more versatile. However, it can be overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to mix different colours and prints. But no matter the weather, you really can’t go wrong with thin delicate layers. The most important thing about learning how to layer is to understand the basics. Start with a simple outfit (a white tank top for example) and then just add layers and a bunch of accessories to build up your look. A monochromatic head to toe look is the safest option.
Wear loose, lightweight items which will allow you to feel the cooling breeze. Sheer chiffon, mesh, or lace are perfect material to layer in the summer. If you miss your knitted cardigan, just replaced it with a sheer kimono and add a mix of different belts for a more boohoo style. You can also choose a thiner cardigan and throw it over your shoulders and tie it. This will give you a more elegant and effortless look. Long sleeveless vests are also a very chic option for the summer, especially worn on top of a thin shirt. Try and transform your basic outfit into something new by layering a loose top or shirt over a dress.
Good luck and have fun mixing textures and prints. Most important: don’t be afraid to be bold!
