We know you’ve all been enjoying the hot summer temp and soaking up the sunshine, but as we all too aware, the British weather takes the biscuit when it comes to predictability, hence, our team have come up with some crafty ways for you to cover up during Summer.
Whether it’s a little breezy or you don’t really feel like showing off your arms, just follow our lead with these 4 fab tips.
1. The Denim Shirt/Flannel Skirt
The denim shirt has been a staple in our wardrobes for a while now, similar to the flannel shirt. Both provide a quick casual solution to covering up. For slightly more dressed up occasions like a night out, a denim shirt is probably more suitable than a flannel although, it’s all about the styling – a flannel over a cute black playsuit and some wedges could be cute!
Another great thing about both is that if you find yourself getting hot, you can take them off and tie them around your waist for a laid back ‘cool’ look!
2. Leather Jacket
My favourite – the leather jacket! A leather jacket is the perfect option for the colder summer days or rainy days like we’ve had recently. It is a great way to cold proof your summer outfits and looks just as great thrown over a floral dress as it does over a t-shirt and some jeans.
As mentioned in a couple of earlier posts, the kimono is definitely a Summer go-to for covering up. Great for hotter days as kimonos are made of very light material and come in many different patterns and styles so there is one for every occasion.
A blazer is a great way to cover up if you are going for more of a formal/smart casual look. Add a blazer to a graphic tee and you have rock chic! Thankfully, blazers no longer just come in office colours of black, navy and grey but you can get pastel coloured blazers or bright coloured blazers which are amazing for Summer. You can also try the popular trend of draping the blazer over your shoulders adding a more high-fashion feel to your outfit.
