Let Your Style Breathe: Breezy Summer Looks by The House of Rare

The Summer’s here, which calls for the style that breathes and lets you do you. The hot sunny days already restrict you from stepping outdoors without feeling exhausted and sweaty, your clothes shouldn’t restrict you either, they should let you be comfortable in your skin instead.

The art of summer layering has a few rules that aren’t necessarily a mandate but do help create a look that isn’t dull, washed out, or boring.

1. Balancing Thickness and Texture
Layering thrives on contrasting textures and building from thin to thick for a balanced, comfortable look.

2. Incorporate a range of tones
Lightweight linen and cotton offer a spectrum of colors beyond neutrals, allowing you to enjoy their cooling properties while still going for a darker look.

3. Focus within and on the outside
Undershirts are a great way to stay cool and comfortable in the summer heat. They absorb sweat, which helps prevent stains on your outer shirts.
Lightweight layering is an art form, and the overshirt "shacket" is the missing masterpiece in your summer wardrobe.

4. Don’t just go for the obvious.
Wool isn't just for winter. Lightweight, breathable wools can keep you cooler than cotton or linen on hot days. Look for "loose weave" for airflow and "high-twist yarn" for wrinkle resistance – perfect for summer travel!

5. Expose the Unexposed.
Socks? In summer? Believe it or not, your socks can make a big difference in how cool you feel. It might sound weird, but the extra airflow around your feet can be a total game-changer! Go for invisible socks under your loafers or sneakers


Now that we’ve broken down the rules for better understanding, let's move on to the “Art” of Summer Layering.

Layering your clothes lets you breathe new life into your favorite summer pieces, adapting to the day's warm breeze and keeping you comfortable. Here at The House of Rare, we're all about effortlessness combined with an idea of sophistication, and here are a few inspirations that we think are the perfect combinations that let you layer for a summer that will remind you of the ocean breeze on a starry night.
