If you live in or you are visiting a warm climate, dressing in a festive holiday sweater may be out of the question. So how do you dress for holiday themed events when it is 80 degrees? I lived in the New Orleans area for a few years and often visited places in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean on holidays. I collected lightweight filmy things in rich colors that could be worn in layers as needed. (Layers have been my friend since I was about 32 years old!) One of my favorite recent items is this richly colored and embroidered cascading vest from Covered Perfectly. At last count, I have eight of these vests!
My winter looks start with these long sleeve tees from Covered Perfectly almost every day. I recently stocked up on new ones so I thought I would give this new red vest a try too. I have many of these vests and find that I can wear them all year round in many ways. I have worn them with tank dresses, skirts, cropped pants, turtlenecks, blouses, tees, you name it. One of my favorite ways to wear a cascading vest in warm weather is with a white top and white pants. They work well with almost anything to add a bit of body coverage and a touch of sophisticated style. I have always felt that a hint of sexy was always better than a full on announcement. Now more than ever, I dress in a subdued way. That’s why I love wearing these cascading vests so much. I can dress in lightweight separates and then add this vest. It is almost like wearing my favorite combo of a scarf and a jacket but a vest is much cooler. This past summer I wore them a lot when I was in Los Angeles, where it was 100+ degrees.
I always take advantage of the buy two get one FREE special because I buy new tees each season. I machine wash the tees in cold water and then hang them to air dry. I never put my fine knits in the dryer. You can find Covered Perfectly here.
