#1 While you may want to wear multiple layers to add depth to your look, settle on a number after paying due deliberation to your frame. If you’re lean, you can opt for several layers, but if you’re on the heavier side, stick to 2 or 3 layers.
The key to layering during summer and monsoon is picking sheer, lightweight pieces and layering them together. Bulky knits and cardigans
are best reserved for when there is a nip in the air.
In keeping with the light layering rule, pick pieces such as waistcoats
, shirts, faux-denim blazers, bomber jackets in thin fabrics and sheer V-neck sweaters to build your look.
#4 Unlike winters, where you’re layering more for utility and less for vanity, summer layering is all about visually enhancing your outfit. So, pick pieces of varied lengths to add dimension.
#5 When it comes to fabrics, pick breathable ones such as cotton and linen and nylon blends and steer clear of wool and denim as they have a tendency to trap heat.
#6 Since the focus is on keeping things sleek and flat, don’t opt for pieces with a wide collar, stiff belt or oversized detailing. Keep the collars and sleeves narrow, and pick garments that are minimalistic and contemporary in their structure.
We understand that the idea is to create interest, but don’t go overboard with the use of prints
. Pick a few printed pieces and balance them with other solid-coloured ones.
