Is it summer yet? No, but seems like the weather in Cairo is having some mood swings. Early morning it’s cold, then warm mid-day, and then cold again at night. It’s a bit confusing to decide what to wear in such crazy weather so for me the best choice is to LAYER!
Whether you are a student or a working lady, you face the morning cold chilly and the mid-day warm weather, though we all still want to look fabulous. So, here are few of my favourite ideas to cope with the weather with style.
I believe the denim jacket is the best friend of all styles. It suits almost everything; from casuals and classics, to boho and athleisure looks even. You can wear it on any style; and if you feel warm, you can either leave it on your shoulders or wrap it around your waist. Bonus, almost all of us have one in our closets; if you don’t, it might be worth the investment!
Knitwear is known for its cozy sensation. In this weather, it’s perfect to wear a knitwear cardigan above a cotton top, dress, or shirt. It gives the perfectly needed warmth and style.
Well yeah, in the cool morning a sweater perfectly fits. Depending on your style, you can wear a sweater dress on boots, balance a sweater with a skirt, or simply put on a nice sweater with your fav jeans: the practical choice. In the last 2 choices, you can wear a nice shirt underneath the sweater. If it is too hot for you, take it off and wrap it around your waist; whether the shirt or the sweater, they work both ways.
You Haven’t Oversized Yet!
Oversized tops of all kinds are incredibly trendy now! Whether it’s an oversized shirt, scarf, or jacket, it’s the perfect weather now for oversizing. You can wear whatever you feel like with an oversized top and get a super trendy look. What makes perfect sense to me now with this weather is an oversized shirt, layering it with a scarf for morning chills, or statement shirt with an oversized jacket – all styles will work very well.
