Many of my clients like the layered look and want help creating it in their day-to-day style. I love the texture that luxurious scarves and layers provide, but it's starting to get HOT here in RI!
So, how do you get that multi-dimensional layered look without overheating? Here are 3 of my top tips:
Mix metals with your jewelry to add color and texture to your outfit, giving it dimension and visual interest.
One idea: Layer long thin necklaces in groups of 3 (odd numbers always work better than evens, in home and self decor!). Add a sleeveless top and cocktail shorts or a skirt, and you're ready for an evening out.
If you have a summer-weight scarf, it can come in handy for summer nights near the ocean. I have one on hand for exactly that occasion - it's a pretty way to keep warm!
A sarong is my other favorite summer go-to accessory. Find one in colors you love and you’ll have it for years! Lightweight and easy to fit in a handbag, a sarong can be used as an impromptu picnic blanket or a shawl for chilly kids. As well, a sarong can be worn as a dress, skirt or beach cover-up. Get a sarong tie to make all these options super easy. (Check out 7 ways to tie a sarong, here!)
