good morning, ladies! today we are going to watch how a third layer and simple accessories can elevate and change the look of your outfit. even if it’s hot and humid outside a linen blazer and silk button up are good choices for a day in the city. but if you need to shed a layer or two, this ootd will still keep you at the top of your style game.
let’s start with a pair of 10″ honey brown chinos from J. Crew. there’s a hint of stretch added to these bermuda shorts which means they are comfortable. next, i added a silk button up. linen or cotton shirts would work perfectly fine so keep your options open. for my third layer, i chose a navy blue J.Crew tipped linen schoolboy blazer similar here. and for a little pizazz, i added a straw hat similar here. canvas sandals similar here and canvas handbag similar here scream summer, but they add a casual chic tone that keeps the outfit from looking too stuffy.
notice in the next photos how the outfit transitions from polished…
style tip: a third layer adds spit and polish to your outfit.
but don’t forget the power of accessories.
