Brighter days, vibrant colours, fun brunches and endless weekend getaways, that's what summer dreams are made of. But if there's one thing we absolutely dislike about the season, it's the extreme heat and humidity it brings along.
Fortunately, the warm weather also welcomes a medley of pop prints and patterns in light fabrics like cotton and linen, so you don't have to resort to your same old uniform of a loose T-shirt and denim shorts. If you're looking to revamp your summer style, a little light layering could go a long way. Not only would it transform your outfits easily, it could also help you introduce a personal touch.
To help you get started, we’ve listed down a few easy tips that will make you a summer layering pro. From choosing the right fabrics to understanding how to put an outfit together, here’s everything you need to know.
Choose The Right Basics
Keeping the weather in mind, opt for basic silhouettes that are summer-friendly—like a cotton tank top, a linen shirt or a bralette. Since this is your base layer, fabrics that are breathable and most importantly, comfortable, are your best bet. Remember, you’ll also be layering something over your base layer, so it's best to avoid options like pullovers or knitted tops, which might trap excess heat.
Skip The Sleeves
Sleeveless vests and jackets are a must-have in your summer wardrobe. Pair one over your basic tee to upgrade your style game in no time. It’s effortless and perfect for the season.
Delicate Lace And Sheer Jackets
A light and dainty floral jacket or an intricate crochet jacket can be your go-to for off-duty days. Layer them over an all-white look, or simply use them as cover-ups on your next beach vacation.
Invest In Versatile And Statement Pieces
Your outer layer should be something that elevates your look instantly, with little to no effort. Opt for statement pieces in easy-to-wear silhouettes, and colours that you can wear all year round.
Power Of Prints
The right time to sport your favourite prints and patterns is now. Whether it’s a polka-dotted shirt, layered with a striped shrug, or that ikat handloom jacket you'd been waiting to wear with your breezy white dress, summer wardrobes call for all things vibrant and statement-worthy.
