Layers & Details

Crisp air, falling leaves, PSL and tons of layers are a few reasons why I LOVE winter so much! I also love creating fun outerwear looks through layering—jacket under a vest or vest over a sweater—to help elevate my fall/winter looks in a unique way while remaining warm. 


I recently picked up this amazing Derek Lam utility vest with a detachable fur collar and hood. Its extremely warm with 4 pockets (two front flap and 2 side) that are deep enough to fit keys, phone, wallet, compact, snacks—anything else you'd need for the day! I also grabbed this gorgeous Johnny Wasembroidered jacket (on sale and under 100 bucks!) to layer underneath the vest creating an entire jacket.  


What I love about this vest is that I can ultimately create a unique outerwear look by layering it with any jacket I own. So far I've parred it with my black Iro leather, embroidered Johnny Was, and most recently my Blank NYC  green suede jackets (I'll have photos from that look on the blog a little later so stay tuned) and I'm loving EVERYTHING about how well this vest works with what I already own. Since the hood and fur are both detachable, you can take them off on warmer days or add different colored real or faux fur to really make this vest unique to you. One vest—endless opportunities to create fashion forward styles! I can guarantee you no one will have a jacket as unique as yours this winter—NO ONE!
