No matter where you live, there is always that awkward moment between seasons where you can’t decide if you should be keeping your bomber on hand or busting out the cutoff shorts. Some days it’s 90 degrees and I’m like “OK let’s do this summer!” But then the next week it’s cold again and the heat kicks on in the house. It messes with our emotions for sure. But there’s a solution: the leather vest. Warm and layerable like a regular leather jacket, but breathable and springy like… not wearing a jacket at all, it’s the best of both worlds and the perfect support piece through a difficult transition of seasons. It’s all going to be OK.
FASHION FENG SHUI NOTES: The first noticeable element in this outfit is water, for the overall black, moto style (rebel), and the splatter effect in the jeans. My metal essence is still present with the crisp white color of the tee and sneakers, the high quality nature of the vest, and the monochromatic color palette to keep things somewhat sleek. My fire intention comes through with the multiple leather pieces and lots of noisy hardware on the vest. For a day of running around, you’d want a breathable/moveable outfit, which is present through the cottons and sneakers, so the outfit would serve a wood intention as well.
