Investment Piece: The Leather Vest

I don’t know about you but for the last couple of weeks I’ve got the dress code totally wrong. This British weather you never know what it’s up to next, one minute the suns beaming and the next it’s biblical rain!

Outwear is the key to pulling a seamlessly stylish ensemble together. There are various summer coats and jackets to choose from but one wardrobe winner has to be the Leather Vest. The beauty of this hero piece is that you can wear this in the summer with a statement dress to skinnies and a tee for that relaxed weekend look.

Rain or shine the leather vest is a wardrobe must have as its a  piece that allows you to subtly tap into this season’s moto fashion trend. I love the leather vest because it’s a piece that is versatile, giving your look that instantantly giving your look depth and texture.  I especially love this piece for autumn winter too because you can really play around with this piece by introducing it with layers using knits or more sheer pieces.

The leather vest is that great transitional piece that you will wear season after season. Some things you just don’t buy cheap and this is one style pick I recommended that you go the whole hog and buy real leather. Quality is everything and it shows in the aesthetics of a completed look, a leather vest is a number in which you would want to get maximum cost per wear from.

With a vast selection of designer and high-street styles I’ve put together the ultimate edit of ravishingly stylish leather vests which can help you to elevate your look for seasons to come.
