Sleeveless over sleeveless is always a no-brainer. Make a white topper stand out by layering it over a breezy black sheath (or black tank and black silk pants). Simple accessories to follow.
As the temps drop, use a white vest to add a little physical warmth to your jeans-and-tee combos. You can even start adding boots, hats and cotton scarves as needed.

Next verse, same as the first. Only this time, we’re talking the time-honored New York tradition of all black everything. If you can find a vest with some texture (like these leather panels), it’ll set the two layers apart.
Now this is where you earn some major cool points. Sweatshirt (preferably of the Rodarte variety) + miniskirt + ankle boots = style boss.
But if you’re a wee more low-key, try denim on denim underneath. A long vest sharpens up the whole ensemble.

Welp, September begins next week. Time for new duds.
But before you get too overwhelmed with coats and boots and hats (it really doesn’t get that cold until, like, November), take a minute to consider a lighter layering piece that’s just as sharp--the long vest.
Whether you wear it over a sheath on warm days or a chambray shirt and jeans on cool ones, you can’t go wrong. See how to style it.
