The weather in Sydney has been crazy over the past couple of weeks. It’s humid with thunderstorms one day, and rainy and cold the next. As a result, it’s been hard to know what to wear. I keep reaching for cardigans and blankets to snuggle with on the couch, and packing a jacket to take to work just in case there is yet another cold day. When ModCloth contacted me asking to share my layering style I jumped at the chance. They are based in the US and in the midst of a massive cold snap so layering for them is a must! I must confess I am looking forward to the cooler mornings as Autumn approached and being able to pull out my blazers, scarves and jackets.
Summer Layering with ModCloth
I have put together two layered looks from ModCloth’s range – one for lazy casual days, and the other for work. Both feature black, white and red – classic colours you know I love! The casual look features light chambray pants, a comfy slub tee and a pair of cool kicks. I also added a gorgeous cardigan for those cooler nights, and a light jacket. It would be the perfect outfit for lounging around on the weekend, taking the dog for a walk, or having lunch with friends. I would tuck the shirt into the pants, blousing it out a little, to define the waist (the stylist on my last Weight Watchers shoot told me to ‘always tuck’). The cardigan looks great zipped up as it shows off the cute cowl neck.
The second outfit is one I would love to wear to work. You can’t go past a smart pencil skirt for the office (or classroom, in my case!). The sleeveless blouse (again, I would tuck it in) is perfect for Summer, and I added a light weight cardigan in crimson for some colour. ModCloth has a great range of cardigans which you can see here. I absolutely loved the blazer with scalloped edges – perfect for occasions where you need to dress up a bit. It would also look great with jeans or black trousers. I chose flat shoes as that is what I wear to work, but this skirt would lend itself to 1960’s chic with a pair of cute wedges or hot stilettos.
