How to wear a jacket in summer

My style Not Only Twenty

The men’s jacket is not just about winter and Vittoria Beckham demonstrates it with her forest pantsuit that has become the must-have of summer 2018. Do you remember that we had already talked about it in the post What to add in our closet for the summer?

In addition to light clothes it is important to have a summer jacket in the closet.

Wear the jacket instead of the shirt

But how to wear a jacket without dying by heat?

First you need to choose a very light jacket, whether it’s masculine or with some “habit” that adds femininity is not essential, choose the model that best reflects your tastes and your personality.

Wear your jacket like a shirt, without shirts or tops underneath. I really like the jackets worn like this, the only thing we have to pay attention to is that it’s not too unglued, in that case I always wear under my bra with sequins.

I love when you glimpse the glitter of the sequins, but if the thing seems too “audacious” you can wear a band top (on Topshop  site you find all the colors and all the patterns for few euros) that are always beautiful, even if a little more chaste.

When to wear the jacket

The jacket can be worn all day, from morning to night! It always depends on the combinations that we make for more important or more easy outfits: it goes without saying that if we wear the jacket in the morning, without any important appointment, the combination should be more casual, vice versa if we wear it for some more challenging situations, we should do more classy combinations.

I chose a light jacket with a masculine cut, but made more special by cuts, inserts, stitching and belt.

In Milan for an appointment, I combined shiny and wide pants to make the outfit less casual. As a result, the accessories cannot be sneakers and shoulder bags, so the choice was for sandals and a red clutch to give a touch of color. As you can see from the photos, under the jacket I wear the green sequined top by Dries Van Noten, I bought several colors because, in my opinion, give a chic tone to any outfit (if you are interested try to look on Yoox, where they sell clothing of great brands from past collections at attractive prices) …
