With our fave season just around the corner (autumn hues! crunchy leaves! pumpkin spice lattes!), we’re welcoming the first very-appreciated signs of fall with some light layers. It’s a careful balance between evading the chill and not outshining a cute summer outfit hiding underneath. Since you’ll soon be pondering just how to achieve the look, we’ve pulled together some fun inspiration. Scroll below to see how the best of the best are sporting layers ever so chicly.
1. Lighten Up
Save structured pieces for colder temps because summertime is all about easy, breezy layering. We’re loving this graphic print blazer accessorized with a pair of statement shades. Her cute, mussy ‘do balances the look.
2. Go Team Go!
There’s just something about the carefree nostalgia of a “borrowed from your boyfriend” varsity jacket. It’s got a tomboy feel which plays nicely with feminine prints and an embroidered mini.
3. Jean Dream
Denim jackets continue to be a beloved member of our closet A-team. Layered over neutrals keeps it from feeling too heavy.
4. In the Army Now
Lightweight and versatile (it’s a mystery to us how they go with everything!), army jackets are a heavy hitter in every cool girl’s closet. Styled with lady-like elements helps to soften the look.
5. Lovely Leather
Play with elements of masculinity by topping off your outfit with a leather moto jacket. It brings an edgy element to a vibrant, ultra-feminine dress.
6. Pattern Play
Embrace your inner maximalist and rock statement jackets with printed separates. It’s a playful approach to late-season layering, and anything but boring.
