A Go-To Layering Piece: The Sleeveless Sweater

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I bought this sleeveless sweater over a year ago and I am still not over it.

It has proved time and time again that it’s just the thing I need to throw on with…anything. Seriously. I’ve worn it with a tee and cut-offs, a button-down and jeans, a long sleeve body suit and trousers. Literally. I wear it with allthethings and it never gets old.

In fact, I so meticulously and carefully hand wash this thing, in an attempt to keep it in a wearable condition for as long as possible, that it might as well be one of my babies. ha. It’s just one of those dependable, comfortable and almost irreplaceable staples for me – one I hope to always ensure stays in my closet, even if it does have to be updated at some point (sigh).

Recently I threw it on again, but this time over a comfy, form-fitting midi dress. Again, the sweater won. I like how it makes me feel more casual and relaxed in a dress, especially one that isn’t afraid to show all of the curves. It was also the perfect layer for the weather, which…ya know. I’m in the south and that means we are still seeing high 70’s here (with that occasional delicious chilly day)…& when it gets a tad chilly, the biker jacket always steps in and makes it all good.

top: Trouve Sleeveless Sweater Vest, from a while ago – this Kensie one is similar…and it has pockets, so…

dress: Leith midi dress, no longer available – this Lovers + Friends Midi is very similar to my own.

jacket: BlankNYC moto jacket (wearing size M) – great jacket. I’m a big fan.
