A while back, I wore this amazing trench as a dress (see it here); I have to say, as much as I loved it buttoned up, I adore the way it looks open as a vest. Such a fantastic layering piece!
Rather than pairing this sweater & vest with normal blue jeans, I decided to go with a pair of black leather-coated jeans. I wear them all the time in the colder months & think they elevate a casual look in the perfect way. Be prepared to see lots of outfits featuring my leather pants!
