STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Art of Lightweight Layering

Rompers have become a summer staple: they’re as easy to style as a dress and have the comfort of built-in shorts. Sometimes, one can get bored styling a one-piece outfit, but this Fashionista found a way to give new life to her romper.

This Fashionista chose to layer a T-shirt over her romper, switching up the usual look of this piece, without too much added weight. In this summer’s heat, looking cool and staying cool are definitely priorities. The breezy T-shirt adds a casual touch to the structured short of the romper, allowing this look to seamlessly transition from brunch with friends to completing daily errands. Not only that, but the Nike Air Huaraches are perfect for a long day of running around town.

As for accessories, this Fashionista chose to keep it simple. She donned an intricately carved jade necklace, adding slight color and detail to her sporty look. Her bag added more structure to the outfit and also expanded the neutral color palette.

Her accessories aren’t the only things adding detail to this look. By mixing textures and patterns, this Fashionista creates a look that is both visually interesting and ideal for warm temperatures. The linen romper is airy, the cotton T-shirt is light and the mesh sneakers are breathable. Talk about a look that is both fashionable and functional!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: “Don’t be afraid to purge your entire wardrobe if you get a good idea. Also, look at the style of people on the streets rather than celebrities or models. You can better judge how you would look and be perceived by others.”
