While summer is usually a steamy and sweatier season, this year is definitely one for the books in terms of odd weather. Crazy thunderstorms one minute and sunshine the next. With temperatures rising and falling like a roller coaster, it’s hard to keep up! I know for me it is constantly a struggle to pick out my outfit because the weather is so unpredictable. So, when in doubt, layer up!
I spotted this week’s Fashionista rocking her leather jacket, on a particularly dreary day, over a white shirt and accessorizing with a bright coral scarf. Of course my ensemble was not weather appropriate (I was shivering in shorts), which is why this Fashionista caught my attention. Even though it may be summer, sometimes our summer wardrobe just doesn’t fit the weather forecast. When this happens, we have no choice but to adjust. However, don’t let that get you down, follow in the footsteps of this Fashionista. If you’re forced to adjust, do it in style.
This season there are so many fun vests and jackets to throw over any outfit that layering has never been so easy. Slip into a cozy sweater for a more relaxed look or toss on a leather jacket for more of an edgy vibe— whatever works for your personal style! If the weather doesn’t require something so heavy, try adding a simple scarf to your outfit, the extra material around your neck will add just the right amount of warmth, without being too overbearing.
Don’t let the dreary weather get you down, I’m sure Mr. Sun will come around one of these days! How will you layer up this season?
