That Long Vest

Rainy season is the perfect reason to layer. But layering can be tricky, especially if you live in Manila where it’s hot and humid in the morning and raining and windy in the afternoon. The trick when layering is wearing the right fabric and cut so you won’t end up sweating like a pig or freezing like a popsicle while possibly being stuck in crazy Manila traffic. Heehee.

My default dressing will always be a pretty dress. It always makes me look pretty and decent. While it’s easy to slip on a dress, styling it differently as to give it a new look is quite challenging. The secret? Layering. Add an outer wear such as a jacket, cardigan, vest or blazer to give your favorite dress a second life.

Sticking to contrast makes it easy for me to inject my personality to the type of clothes I wear which later on becomes my personal style.
Mango_FF15_LongVest_JackieGo_2I have a thing for outer wear and have a dozen vests, blazers and the like. I’m adding this piece to my growing collection because it makes an outfit more stylish than it already is.

For those who love wearing dresses like me, try experimenting and add a layer (an outer wear or perhaps a scarf) to your dress to give it a new look.
