I’M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE whose brain plays imaginary background music when it’s not socially acceptable to completely cut out other unnecessary sounds with my earphones, so it’s really important for me to have clothes that compliment every minute of this stage performance we call life. If those clothes are twirl friendly and add drama to my movement, even better. That said, it’s no wonder that this scarf-like vest my colleagues bought for my birthday last month became one of my favorite summer overlay pieces.
I can’t help but appreciate its incredibly light fabric that seems to billow behind me in slow motion. Add to that a carpet of rooftop flowers that managed to bloom on the hard concrete and weathered wooden doors and you have a fantasy setting just waiting to tell a dramatic story.
But coming back to reality and looking at this vest from a utility perspective, it’s the perfect piece for a die-hard fan of layering like me. The heat really challenges my creativity when it comes to outfit planning because less never seems to be less enough in summer. In such conditions the mere idea of layering another piece sounds like torture. Luckily for me, this vest is almost weightless so don't judge me if you see me wearing it repeatedly in my Instagram stories. I am an outfit repeater, remember?
Summer, you've got nothing on my layering game.
