Plus Size Summer Layers

Plus Size Summer layers and ideas. Layering is not just for fall friends!! am a huge fan of layering… One of the reasons I love fall so much is that I can pull out all of my cardigans and other layers without dying from heat;) So how do I deal with layering in the summer? Well, summer layers are fun and actually pretty easy. It just required an eye for what will add the layer, but not the heat! I have 5 favorites that I wear in the summer, over and over. Let me tell you about them!


First is the denim vest! I wear this with dresses, shorts, skirts etc. I love that I can wear it to define the waist on a more boxy kind of dress or wear it to cover up the fact that I am not wearing a strapless bra when I have on a strapless top!

Next is a kimono style layer. I have these in chiffon and lace and a thinner cotton for the warmer months. I love how flowy they are and they provide that coverage when it is super hot without adding any heat to my outfit since the air can still flow around the kimono:)

I also love this duster style vest. It has a fun long layer, which is my favorite layer in the winter, so having an option for the summer is great too:)

I love adding a shirt on top of dresses! This helps like the denim vest to add a waistline to the dress and it adds some different visual appeal!

And finally, the military vest. Much like the denim vest I wear this with just about anything. But I especially love to wear it with a tunic and leggings folded up into capri length or even short length!
