LAYERING. Quick what season are you thinking of? If you’re like most people, summer wasn’t the first one that popped into your mind! But actually you can do layering all year round. Due to the usually hotter temperature, of course summer layering will be more tricky than in other seasons. And obviously we have to choose from lighter materials.

There are quite a lot of pieces that you can use for summer layering, but today I am going to only focus on one particular piece, a vest.

Since last year, the long vest is on the hot list for a long time. The long vest we are taking about is the structured suit vest. They give you a very sleek silhouette and can go with almost everything. Choosing the classic black and white is always the safe way to go. Below are some of my looks while using them.

Other than classic black and white, a military style long vest is a wild choice. Actually this one is a shirt dress but I always wear it as a long vest. 😉

I like to play with a long and short contrast on my very petite frame. Choosing a long vest that ends above your knee and making it the longest piece on your body will create a taller look.

Other than a long vest, a normal length one is also a good choice to pair with a casual look and add more interest. I like to go with some classic color and cut but with zippers, studs and peplum details.

Overall, a vest can make a cute outfit into a stylish outfit! 🙂 Below are more looks for today. Have a great day and see you tomorrow!
