5 Summer Layers for the Gal Who Loves the Sheer Look: Friday Finds

Summer layers are gauzy, dreamy, and beautiful.

Get ready for the season of perpetual warmth by stocking up on some summer layers that can go from waterside to date night.

Summer layers are perfect for covering a swimsuit.

Gauzy tunics are wonderful options for summer layers.

1. One piece suit and tunic

Sure, you don’t need a coverup, but when you can slightly cover your core and extremities with something that’s this cute, we say why not? This sheer, gauzy tunic comes in three colors—ivory, pink, and gold. It features a delicate crochet pattern and side tie accents. Priced at $78. We paired this tunic with the suit pictured above because they both share that ever popular boho look. The one-piece suit comes in khaki and pink, has a low back, and a gentle scoop neck. Priced at $170.

Bodysuits are perfect for layering summer layers on top.

Wrap pieces make perfect summer layers.

2. Bodysuit and wrap skirt

Wrap skirts are always a wonderful summer option. This wrap skirt can be worn long, short, and can even be fashioned into a dress ($98). For this look, though, we’re partial to wearing the wrap as a skirt and pairing it with a bodysuit ($58). This floral suit features a cutout and a tie at the bust. When paired together, the look is flirty—perfect for a date on the beach.

Summer layers should include bodysuits adorned with lace.

Summer layers can be turned sexy with gauzy, long pieces.

3. Lace bodysuit with gauzy maxi dress

If you’re looking for an ultra-sexy layered outfit, consider pairing the above sheer maxi dress ($118) with a lacy bodysuit ($177). This maxi dress may be long and shapeless, but its gauzy silhouettes create an alluring look. Wear this bodysuit underneath the maxi dress to accentuate your curves while providing some minimal coverage. We love how these layers’ lace embellishments compliment each other.

Summer layers sometimes can be simple. For example: this simple shirt.

4. Layered top

Sometimes, all you need to pull off a layered look is a relaxed fit, mock-layered top. This piece features two types of cloths that are layered atop one another—a red layer that has a high cutout and a layer underneath that has red and white stripes. Pair this look with shorts or jeans to stay comfortable and cool on a rainy, muggy day. Priced at $68.

Summer layers should always have a great base--like this beautiful dress.

Summer layers should always have a great piece of flair--like this beautiful kimono.

5. Halter dress and coverup

We’re finishing up this list with a classic combination: a halter dress ($99.95) and a light summer pullover. This dress has a maxi fit with subtle cutouts around the knee down to the ankle. Pair it with this beautiful, flowing kimono ($98) with an open front. Perfect for cool nights when you want to look stylish but stay warm when you’re not hanging out by a beach bonfire.
