Outfit: The Art of Layering

Outfit Layering black dress white long vest jacket

How are the holidays going guys? While I'm writing this I'm full of Bûche de Noël and Christmas cookies. It's good that these pictures were taken before heading to the Christmas lunch...
As for the outfit I had to get a little creative but I'm all the more satisfied with the result. I'm spending the holidays at my boyfriend's place so I don't have many clothes with me. In fact I had planned to just wear this dress with the jacket, but in the end found the look a bit boring. How good that I still had my vest from this casual look with me. I decided to combine it all together and round it off with a belt I stole from my man.
Layering is an awesome way to pimp an outfit, but it looks best when you dare to take some risks. Of course there are no rules so I tried this outfit in different variations. First I wore the blazer under the jacket, then the jacket under the blazer, and then the blazer with a belt and the jacket just over my shoulders. I could have made it even more fancy by changing the tights for pants, but wanted it to still look elegant for the holiday.
I said it many times but can only repeat myself: This white long vest is the most versatile piece of clothing I bought all year! If you want to get crazy on the layering trend you should definitely buy yourself a similar vest, too.
