Summer is upon us and with it brings a question of how do we dress ourselves? The hot season is generally one where we would shed those coats and jeans for sleeveless tops and shorts. However this is England, blistering heat brings downfalls of rain – So layering clothes is always an option.
So I’ve talked about winter layering several times, and I’ve even talked about spring layers. But what about the summer? For me, I hate being cold. I dread when suddenly there’s a change in the weather. The colder it gets, the more layers you add. Pretty simple, right? But with summer, it’s hard to create diversity in your wardrobe. So I would recommend a few staple items, and most importantly to look at the fabrications. Wearing breathable and natural fabrics like cotton are definitely going to keep you cooler when it’s hot, and are the perfect items to use when layering during summer.
As you all should know by now, denim is my favorite staple. It’s so versatile, can be worn all year round and makes any outfit look 10 times cooler. The denim jacket is the best way to layer in the summer. It can be worn with other denims – yes! double denim my friends! You can style it with skirts, culottes, maxi dresses, palazzo trousers and so much more (the list continues…).
Denim seems like a heavy fabric but in reality, many forms are super light. Take this Mint Velvet Nude Washed Denim Jacket its 90% cotton which makes this the perfect summer coverup. What I love is that you can update your denim jacket with a modern twist due to the biker style. This jacket features an asymmetric zip front opening and cute zipped pockets. It also has poppers on the sleeves allowing you to roll them up on those warmer days.
