How To Wear A Sheer Dress To Work | Summer Layers

 I love wearing layers all year round. Although most people only wear layers during the cold seasons, I like to keep it going. For those who work an office job and feel like they’re running out of appropriate pieces to wear, layering sheer pieces is a great way broaden your options. Summer layers are just as fun as Fall/Winter layers since I use it as an opportunity to play with different textures. As you may know by now, pink holds the key to my heart and yellow has always been the 4th runner up. From a yellow dress to a yellow wall, I think I’m currently loving yellow more than I usually do. I absolutely love the way it compliments darker skin tones. Because yellow is a much lighter version of brown, I feel like it’s easier to pair it with a lot of colors.

The sheer dress is quite a few years old. If you shopped at H&M a few years ago, then you just might remember this print which was utilized to create a variety of pieces.

You may remember this shirtdress worn underneath the sheer dress as I previously paired it with an oversized button down top.

Wearing layers is a great way to showcase different textures, prints and/or shades.

I tend to wear my hair in two buns only during the summer. I realized that during the winter, I could care less about wearing different hairstyles. I love easy hairstyles and wearing my hair in two buns is super easy!

I don’t even consider it much of a style because I wear my hair in a bun quite often so splitting the bun in two doesn’t feel like much work.

I absolutely do not care for denim pants as I subconsciously stopped wearing them 6 years ago but I do have an appreciation for other styles of denim such as tops, dresses and SHOES. A denim sandal is so perfect for the summer as most people wear denim pants a lot less during the summer due to the heat. With a denim sandal, denim lovers still get to achieve their denim fix.

This look was super easy to wear. I didn’t want to do the sheer look, yet I wanted to wear the sheer dress therefore I wore a piece underneath. Simple.

    Good question, I don’t wear summer layers because it makes me to feel sweaty. Summer is HOT period. I always try as much as I can to be descent and wear less dress. Layers is something I can deal with during winter season—who wouldn’t like to layer up at that time. For me to layer up summer time, I have to go from air car to air office, no walking on the street and no subway and bus—get the gist. Oyin I always admire the way you always put everything together and it becomes fabulous one. God bless you Oyin. Amen
