How to add warm layers to your Summer Style

Hello there lovelies!! Last week I featured a post on some cheap and cheerful tops to top-up your wardrobe (you can read said post here). It got me thinking, it's great picking up a few new tops but when it comes to wearing them casually everyday we need to have layers to match. I love looking at other bloggers outfit posts on instagram, everything looks so summery and fresh but in reality we need a few neutral warm layers to add to these looks. And that's what this post is going to be all about, adding warm layers to your Summer Style.

You are going to love my first find as it's very similar to one of my fave jackets. I bought a pink cord Kookai jacket, I think about 12/13 years ago....really!! I wore it regularly at the time but I have to admit it then went to the back of my wardrobe for a number of years. I'm so glad I didn't throw it out, I was putting together a couple of looks to wear to Castlepalooza festival 2016, I tried it on and fell in love with it all over again. Through back to me wearing my jacket at the festival....

And more recently this is how I have styled my old faithful Kookai jacket.

And the good news for my readers, is that I have found a very similar style jacket available on next.co.uk. It's a cord jacket also and the colour is almost identical. What I love about the jacket is that you have the versatility of a denim jacket, wear it casually and as you've seen above you can style it with a dressier look. The colour is just perfect for the summer.

My next cover-up essential is a blazer, if you don't own a blazer, get one!! I've chosen this versatile style from Zara. Zara have a brilliant choice of blazers at the moment, if you already own a black one then I would suggest going for a Navy one instead or for the summer months a white one would be fab too. Similar to the cord jacket, a blazer can work with both casual denim looks and equally as great over a dress. This particular crepe blazer is available in black or white.

Another terrific cover-up to have in your wardrobe is a Khaki cardigan. Khaki is a brilliant neutral and I especially love a green hue for the summer months. I found the following cardi on Next. What I like about it is the length, it will look perfect with jeans and a top and just as good over a dress. I love the zip detail on the sleeves and the fabric is a nice fine knit.

I hope you guys enjoyed my post and found it inspiring.
