Summers are for flowy dresses, skirts and shorts that will give you a breather from the sweltering heat outside. But summer layering is a thing and it can surely take your fashion quotient a notch higher. We’ll tell you how to switch up your style and pull off summer layering without any sweat.

Wear Sheer Pieces

Sheer pieces of clothing make for great layer ups on opaque t-shirts that suit the weather too. Look at how Gia of Gia says that teams her striped t-shirt with a sheer lace shrug. Perfect for a day in the sun.

Wear Full-length Shrugs / Shirt Kurtas Over Shorts

Loose outerwear such as full-length shrugs and shirt kurtas can also serve as greta layering options in the summer. Look for sheer or soft material that’s also weather friendly and wear it over a camisole, tube top or singlet and skirt to get the perfect flowy outfit.

Drapy Kimonos To The Rescue

Drapy printed kimonos are great to give out that carefree, boho vibe. Pair them with a pair of shorts and singlet for a stylish summer look. Kritika Khurana of the blog That Boho Girl, does just that and wins our heart in this picture.

Go Sleeveless

Since the sun is shining bright outside give yourself a breather with sleeveless tops and jackets that are a great bet in this weather. Masoom Minawala of the blog Miss Style Fiesta sports this sleeveless jacket with elan over a fitted midi skirt with loud prints giving the right summer vibe.

Wear oversized casual shirts as jackets over casual tees to give out that airy, summery vibe. Take a cue from Kavya D’Souza of streakhuefall who teams her basic white ganji with an oversized denim shirt, skinny jeans and boots for a casual yet sporty look.

To get the layering game right in the sweltering heat, pair sport your tube tops or camisoles with a shrug in contrasting colour. For a bolder look you can even sport a bralette beneath your shrug. Load up on chunky jewellery to get the boho look on point. See how Soumya Shrivastava effortless wears her shrug with style.

Layer Summer Dresses With Shirts

Layering summer dresses is another way to go chic in this heat. Plus wearing a cover-up will help your arms stay away from the summer sun as well. Ayushi Bangur of Style Drive has a fascination with shrugs and jackets and you’ll see her layering a large number of her outfits with stylish jackets and shrugs. We are fans of this particular outfit where she teams a casual summer dress with a fitted shirt in contrasting colour and takes the layering game a notch higher.

Sport Structured Shoulders

Structured shoulder blazers look smart on flowy summer dresses that give your outfit a dimension. Pick a statement blazer and sport it with your favourite summer dress. Take a cue from these bloggers.
