Summer Layering In Lace

This post contains affiliate links.

This summer has been an especially hot one, leaving me pretty desperate for layers. I just miss my blazers so much! But I think I’ve discovered a life hack: layer in summer with a jacket that barely qualifies as a jacket. Que the lace bomber!

I remember picking this up from Zara a few years ago and wondering what the hell I was going to do with such a ridiculous item, but it’s paying off now that I unearthed it from a clothing rack that buckled under its own weight the other day. Since it shows so much skin, I thought a baggier denim and blouse combo would be kinda fun. The look felt sporty to me, so I ran around telling everyone this was my “hypebeast look”. Yo, Siri. When’s the next Yeezy drop?

This lace bomber is pretty old, but I found a few similar styles so you, too, can be this cool. Enjoy!

    I have an old bomber like that from forever XXI of all places. I forgot all about it but I just resurrected it. I miss my blazers too. Thanks for the great idea.

    May I also suggest a little unlined eyelet blazer to your wardrobe as well, I have a little navy blue one that I picked up vintage at a thrift store that I really enjoy in the hot summer months of Atlanta. Do people still wear eyelet? I do, but then I love seersucker for summer as well. Hey, it has always worked here in the South. It doesn’t wrinkle. Do you ever shop at Talbots? I’m sorry, I’m just old and that’s my shop, but I adore your site and check it weekly as I am a size 4 and a size 4.5 in shoes. I adore you honey! So glad you are BACK. I’ve missed ya. Y
    you have great style. A chanel bag is forever!
