Layering is definitely not just for sweaters. Last season it was all about the contrast of casual and proper through the combination of either denim jackets or varsity jackets with a well tailored coat. However, it was never a trend that suited my style, which is ironic since I dress quite casually with hints of tailored pieces to keep the overall outfit from looking too urban. A big reason was because I could not find the right denim jacket, given I normally wear jeans so choosing the right shade was especially hard. While my varsity style jackets have been associated with Sunday morning soccer for too many years that I can not see myself wearing it other then with sports gear.
My new layering love is a leather jacket with a masculine oversized coat. I love the flow of the dress contrasting with the structure of the leather jacket. While the coat adds another soft structural component, in addition with tailoring. I think my dear doggy loves it too, or maybe he enjoys the attention and pats he receives. Also, he is definitely not camera shy since he managed to end up in quite a few photos. I ended up giving him his turn in front of the lens and he is one photogenic little guy!
