Burgundy Leather Vest Over A Black Leather Jacket

(Vest – Exact, Jacket – Similar, Jeans – Similar, Heels – Similar, Umbrella – Similar)

I know living in England rain is expected a lot, but the amount of rain we are getting every day is insane. I was even woken up last night from hail stones. It’s really becoming quite difficult to take good photos as they come out blurry most of the time and the rain ruins a lot of outfits I want to wear. Anyway, I have always loved the look of colour block jackets, but I haven’t been able to find a good burgundy/black one at all, so I decided to layer my new burgundy vest over my trusty black jacket and I love the illusion it creates! It actually looks like a colour block jacket.

I’m wearing a Forever 21 Faux Leather Burgundy Vest, my Topshop Faux Leather Black Biker Jacket and Glam Black Suede Heels, my Current/Elliott Stiletto Skinny Jeans and an Elle Black Umbrella.

I did purchase this vest when I was in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago, along with a few other things. I have also been busy doing some sale shopping at Zara and Topshop, which I will share with you very soon! I love the after Christmas sales as you can get some amazing deals! I saved up a lot of money and used my Christmas money to purchase some things I have been wanting. Anyway, what do you think of the outfit? Have you ever thought about layering a vest over a jacket?

    Wind, rain, snow or shine you look good. I know that some photographers prefer darker, rainy conditions for taking photos, something to do with the light levels. The lengths you go to for good photos eh?

    This is such a great look! I thought at first that it was just one jacket, but I love that you layered a vest over a jacket – so versatile!!
