How to Layer this Summer!


Layering has been around for a couple of seasons recently, and it’s all about layering one piece of clothing on top of each other (seems quite straight forward, don’t you reckon?). People have been doing it with lace or mesh over the top of T-shirts or underneath dresses. Both of these ways are unbelievable trendy and I can’t see them going anywhere, anytime soon.

So, I decided to go in a bit of a different direction, by layering a playsuit onto of a white shirt. Like I said in my previous post Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts, a shirt gives any outfit a professional feel and can be worn to any occasion. If you were to pair this shirt with a jumpsuit it would be perfect for work but, because I was having quite a casual day I went with the playsuit instead. Layering is especially good for the English weather as, if you have a dress or jumpsuit you want to wear but, it’s a colder day, just add something underneath! It’s as simple as that.

The rest of my outfit is made up of a belt from BooHoo, a little orange bag from Newlook and lastly my eBay shoes which do look a lot more expensive than what they actually were. Like I said in my previous post again, I love adding little pops of colour to my outfits, and I have been LOVING orange. But, another colour would have worked, its all personal preference I suppose. This may not be everyone’s style, and that’s totally fine but, if it is, make sure to leave a comment down below on how you would style a layering outfit!
