How to Wear Lightweight Layers for Spring

I’ve always been a fan of layering and I’m talking layering for each and every season. Sure, it’s easy to throw on a cute sweater over a plaid shirt in the winter, but it gets a little trickier to layer in the warm weather months. That being said, it’s certainly not impossible. When you’re layering in the spring and summer, you want to focus on lightweight layering pieces. That’s just what we’re talking about for Moms Do Spring Style today, lightweight layers for the season at hand. And once you’ve seen what we’ve been wearing, make sure you had over to Baby Shopaholic to see what spring pieces she’s been crushin’ on!

But back to those lightweight layers for spring…Flowy sleeveless tops and tanks are key pieces in my warm weather wardrobe. They’re the perfect starters for a layered look, while keeping you nice and cool if you end up needing to pop off that to layer. And the more neutral they are the better. That way I can style them a million and one different ways with any color under the sun. Take this neutral flowy sleeveless top that I’m wearing in today’s featured look for instance. It worked great under a bold spring print that I spied at a little boutique on our recent spring break vacation. I just loved the vibrant colors. Plus, lightweight kimonos make for perfect spring layering pieces!

Just remember, when you’re working with layers, make sure you go with a more fitted bottom like my skinny jeans. You may remember when I talked about how I scored them in a recent Stitch Fix order when I shared my moccasins spring outfit. I seriously can’t get enough of this pair of denim! And that’s how I feel about the lightweight layers that I shared here today. I have a feeling they’re going to get loads of play in the coming months! As will my espadrille slides. I always like to add a bit of height when I’m rockin’ layers if I can, but I digress.

    Love this outfit! I am not a heels person, I break my ankle with them, but this outfit with some sandals or even sneakers would be great too! I am just now shopping for a few new spring items and am loving the soft colors this spring!
