They are smart, chic and definitely a piece of clothing your summer wardrobe needs. We are talking about layering up with cool jackets this season. Well, layering up in summers does seem odd, especially when it is a winter choice. However, there are a variety of cool options when it comes to choosing the right jacket to beat the heat.

“We feel it [layering] does hold a great value in terms of style. But in terms of comfort, one should focus on the textures of the clothes. Wearing light linen or cotton material for layering is apt as they are thin and let your body breathe. Layers of organza on dresses and trousers add a sense of romance,” says fashion designer Sweta Tantia of Tahweave.

While the trend has become a favourite among Bollywood stars, we take a look how you can experiment with the jacket this season. Add your summer chic with this Kora jacket.

“This is a soft unbleached organic cotton, hand-spun and handwoven jacket with box pleats on the front and back. You can try it on a crop and palazzo trousers,” says fashion designer Vaibbhavi P.

Cool Cotton

Actor Karisma Kapoor looks chic in this white cotton-silk flower jamdani pleated dress with French knot embroidered pockets. What caught our attention was the green with off-white, yellow and brown stripes cowl overlayer with drawstrings. “It’s a single ply cotton overlayer, which is very easy to carry and can be accessorised with anything which makes any outfit looks dressier. An overlayer can be paired up with a pant, dress by making it totally summer ready,” says fashion designer Sweta Tantia.

Flower power

Nothing beats a bold floral motif and this sunflower motif is one happy summer jacket you can opt for. “The jacket is inspired from ‘kediyo’, the traditional wear of Gujarat and also includes some bold handloom prints and a sunflower which is machine embroidered,” says fashion designer Vina Ahuja of Akashi.

Check it out

Keeping it casual and chic is actor Ananya Panday who rocks this print-on-print jacket and shorts by Only. What makes this an ideal summer wear is that the chequered jacket can pass off as formal and casual wear at the same time. Team it with a pair of trousers and you are ready to go.

Style it Right

If you have an early morning activity or travel plan, keep it casual with a cotton sleeveless printed jacket and team it with a pastel T-shirt or you also opt for print-on-print. For instance, a printed jacket and shorts as coordinates.

Summer is a good time for pastel shades. If you are out to get some brunch, try on a pastel jacket with white or ivory pyjamas. In pastel shades, you could choose from powder blue or aqua green.

For an evening outing, a printed long jacket with tapered pants flatters any body type. If you have a wedding to attend, the men can opt for jackets in floral prints and Aztec prints teamed with pastel kurta and the women can go for sheer capes on skirts and flared pants.

Print on print

The jumpsuit and jacket together are a great take on the print-on-print trend. “The longline flowy lightweight jacket is a great way to add versatility to one’s wardrobe. It can be worn in an Indo-western style, the way actor Daisy Shah has paired it or simply over a more casual denim look. The colour blocked striped jacket is a clash of muted azure blues against a bright dash of Tuscan sun yellow, perfect for the summers,” says fashion designer Sougat. Source: Hindustan Times
