Some people hate summer dressing: it’s hot and humid out, and you just want to put on a dress and go (or you know, just lay inside with the air conditioner blasting). I get it. Getting dressed is a non-negotiable though, and it’s way more interesting when you add layering into the mix. Yes, even in the summer. Enter: the denim vest.
Reasons why denim vests are awesome:
- they add a retro vibe with just one item of clothing
- they coverup your bra strap issues (!!)
- they add a jolt of color
Let’s talk about the rest of the outfit… I just need to accept that I will always wear a lot of black, even in the summer. It’s who I am, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wear a lot of color too! This skirt has black in it, so it grounds the look. (Fun fact: this skirt used to be a dress — I loved the print so much that once it got too short, I had it altered into a skirt.) My pendant pulls some of the teal (aqua?) out of the skirt, and ties in with the denim vest.
If you’re looking for more summer layering inspiration, my friend Priyanka also loves a good vest for the summer! Leave me your ideas in the comments too!
