We are officially in those in-between days. It’s Spring, but here in the mountains some days Winter creeps back in, there’s a lot of rainy days, the days are sweltering or there is a breeze that makes it chilly. So dressing for these days can be tricky. So since the weather is all over the map, I’ve been reaching for good layering pieces. Just like this long vest. I picked this vest up from Target’s Who What Wear collection last year and it was a good choice.
This vest pairs well with just jeans and a tee shirt like I have here to add a little warmth to a very simple look. It pulls the simple #ootd together for a very chic look. But it also pairs well with long sleeve shirts and an added cardigan to this look. By adding a cardigan to this specific look you can wear it all day and adjust the cardigan as the weather seems fit. On Sunday when wearing this it started off chilly and ended colder. I did a quick swap of my vest for a leather jacket to take me in to the night.
I added some funky jewelry and shades to make this outfit me and a little more chic. With a vest or sleeveless trench in a neutral color, you can just about style it any way you want. And you can wear a numerous amount of things underneath. A cute skater skirt, band tee and fun booties would also look ultra chic under this!
A vest, sleeveless trench or kimono is a great way to play with lengths and add an extra layer in this in-between weather. Plus it’s a great way to incorporate a really good neutral or a really wild print. I’m really loving this, this and this.
