We all know there are days during summer that do not exactly fit into our warm weather style. Depending on where you live, the weather can be 85 degrees one week and change to the mid-50s the next. I’ve found some great styling tips for chilly days that guarantee warmth, while still staying on trend.
I collaborated with Ashley, a Fashionista who really knows just how to pair clothing that will create a casual and comfortable yet trendy outfit for colder summer weather. She explained that it’s all about layering lightweight pieces to achieve the perfect cozy look. She started off her look with a cotton high-low shirt to give dimension and movement to the outfit. The next step is adding some sort of oversize jacket, like the jean jacket worn in this look. This created an edgy vibe while also providing warmth to the outfit.
As for bottoms, this Fashionista is all about being comfortable yet cute, so she decided to wear black leggings to keep her warm. The leggings are simple and work nicely with the flowy shirt and jean jacket. To keep the look focused on the upper body, she wore some black Frye boots to match her black leggings.
Time to accessorize! Accessories are so important when it comes to a more laid-back look. By adding accessories like a patterned scarf and a choker, you can make this look your own and really show off your unique personal style. This Fashionista wore a neutral patterned scarf with funky beads to tie together her top half. As for jewelry, she chose a beaded choker and a simple silver chain.
This look will have you set for planning your style for summer. It is easy to recreate while adding your own touch of accessories and clothing to make it your own. Looks like this one that are easy to add or subtract pieces from are key when it comes to chilly days.
