Jackets in July—Making Them Work Even in the Hottest Heat

July 10th, 2017 at 2:00am

If you are anything like me, you know that a jacket is your best friend. But what about when summer rolls around and the temperature is way above jeans and a cardigan weather? You wear it anyway.

It’s not sweater weather just yet, but a girl can dream. Making a jacket work in the summer sounds simple, but if I have learned anything at all from living in California is that nothing should ever be that simple. I believe that outfits should always show what you love and inspire others to wear what they love.

For this outfit, I styled high-waisted shorts with a white crop top for the basics. These shorts are guaranteed to give you legs for days—and maybe a bit of booty on one of those days. If you think a crop top isn’t giving your outfit enough edge, bandeaus or bralettes are great replacements.

Shoes should always be comfortable, but stylish. Flats are an easy go-to fix for this summer outfit. Personally, I think pointed toe flats give outfits a chic look, not too casual but not too over the top either.

Top off the outfit with a jacket, and don’t think that a fitted jacket is always the best. Try oversize jackets and roll up the sleeves. Wear it over your shoulders for a comfy look that will have everyone asking you about it.

Jackets come in all shapes and designs that may feel a bit odd to wear. Let your Fashionista run wild this summer and try styling your jacket a little differently this time!
