Summer Layers

Summer in London isn’t necessarily the warmest. We don’t get to live in sundresses and camisoles. But at the same time, we are lucky enough to still play with layers even in the warmest months. And I for one, love to style with layers. It is my first time experimenting with layering wide leg trousers under a knee length dress. It sounds intimidating at first, but the addition of a cropped jacket saves me from looking like a little dwarf. A pair of  barely there heeled sandals helps with the proportions too. And some statement earrings are not only totally hot in trend, but also help attract focal point towards the face and upper body.

It’s a completely fresh look from items in my existing wardrobe. The shirt dress must be at least 5 years old, and the white trousers have been there for about 2 years too. The statement-ish white denim jacket is a sample from the brand Whole9Yards, which has really made me consider investing in a white denim jacket. It feels more summery and smart than a normal blue denim, but at the same time still have that cool, casual vibe. I felt completely confident trying out this new concept of styling, and I can’t wait to style more outfits like this. I hope it gives you some inspiration and courage to try it out too.
