Just because it's hot out doesn't mean that you can't wear a sweater. Try an open-back style to keep your favorite knitwear alive.

This look is the perfect example of how to expertly layer in the summertime. Adding the crochet bolero on top makes this look stand out without making you feel too hot. The green in the boots pairs well with the corset to bring the full look together.

Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to Bazaar.com, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
