How-to-style blog post: How to layer your clothing in summer with Miss Patina.

How-to-style blog post: How to layer your clothing in summer with Miss Patina.

Layering clothes is my favourite part of the Autumn/Winter wardrobe. I've always found summer styling pretty difficult as simply wearing a top and shorts doesn't particularly excite me - but thanks to Miss Patina, I've discovered something pretty darn exciting. 

With a sheer dress or top you can add a whole other element to your outfit - I like to think of it as the smarter, more sophisticated, bikini beach throw over. 

Some of us love a good crop top, the ones that show off just a hint of our midriffs; but sometimes it's just not appropriate to have your tummy out, or perhaps you're not feeling overly comfortable that day - this is where a sheer item comes in handy. You can simply throw it on over any two piece and away you go. 

I've seen it done a lot with mesh and body-con, but it's really refreshing to see it in a more girly, delicately feminine style. I'm head over heels for the polka-dot detailing to the body and the tear-drop pearls on the sleeves with this one - and the way it clashes with the print of the two piece underneath, but makes it pop at the same time.

Wow, I've seen these pieces around shops but always thought the only option was to wear a black or white cami dress underneath. How wrong I was, this looks so pretty!
