As Mungo Jerry says ‘In the summertime when the weather is high, you can stretch right up and touch the sky’. Summer time is almost here and its time to drench yourself with a gorgeous summer wardrobe. It’s time to put away all those fur coats and full sleeved jackets. Bring out the shorts and the skirts! It’s time to start loving the warm climate and the bright sunshine!
Denim cutoffs and tiny skirts are probably high on the list this summer. But then again that’s something everyone will be wearing. What can you do to make it different? How do you pick a look that will stand out from the rest? How do you achieve an appearance that is guaranteed to up the temperatures by at least another 20 degrees?
The answer to it all – leather vests! Just a simple touch of leather to an outfit can take it from normal to ultra trendy. Leather is big this year. Yet, leather as a material is naturally conditioned to keep you warm. So how does one use leather to create that ravishing look? The answer as pointed out earlier – leather vest!
A leather vest is usually a simple sleeveless coat – in fine leather and varies in length from above the waist to hip length. They are super attractive and add oomph to the outfit. Leather vests of course are blessed with all the characteristics of this beautiful material. They are rugged, durable, practical and strong! A leather vest manages to have a contradictory softness about its appearance – something that works perfectly with women. Unlike stereotypes, leather vests do come in a variety of colors – right from hot pink and deep red to the traditional blacks and browns.
Here are a few great summer combinations for men and women this summer. Remember to choose a color that you like and would love to see yourself in.
1. Leather Vest + Skirt:
Combine a bright short layered chiffon skirt with a deep tan brown leather vest. Wear the vest plain. If you have an envious mid riff then all the better for the image. The whole appearance with just that hint of skin looks fantastic!
2. Leather Vest + Denim cutoffs:
Once again a marvelous blend! Combine a simple bright colored leather vest – plain is better – but if you wish you can add a tank top inside with a pair of typical faded blue denim cut offs. You could not have grabbed the summer look better
3. Leather Vest + Denims/ Cargos:
With this look, men can be guaranteed that they will attract plenty of glances. Choose a crisp white cotton tee shirt and team it with a simple leather blazer. Add this combination to a pair of straight fit denims or cargos.
Remember that leather vests have a rather rakish appeal. While women look hot wearing if over plain skin, men should preferably try to team it up with an inner. You do not want to come off as a little too enthusiastic.
