For an extra layer of warmth without all the bulk, a leather vest is definitely the way to go! It adds an instant touch of texture to any ensemble, plus it's cute to boot. A leather vest can make a simple T-shirt and jeans outfit more edgy; transform a soft, flowy maxi skirt into a punky ensemble; or tone down a dressy frock into something more daytime-appropriate. There are endless ways you can layer a leather vest, and we found three ladies who sported it in super inspiring ways! BRB, going to try out all of these outfits.

Amsterdam-based blogger Brenda calls this a "simple sightseeing outfit," but we think it's incredibly chic! She paired an H&M leopard blouse with a brown Forever 21 floppy hat, H&M leather vest, opaque black tights, and black buckle boots. Her wavy locks paired with a felt hat and loose blouse gives a seriously '70s vibe that looks far out, man.
Aminta Carrascal of Aminta's Fashion

Aminta hails from Madrid, and DANG, we're envious of her wardrobe. One quick scroll through her blog, and you'll notice that her style COMPLETELY changes from one look to the next! We can't get enough of her unexpected ensembles, which is why we chose her fringe black leather vest look. She wore a black and gray tie-dye wrap dress over a sheer black tank with a neon green belt. She finished her look with an oversized purple ring, a studded bracelet, and to-die-for nude platform lace-up booties with a chrome sole.
Willabelle Ong of Pale Divison

Australian cutie Willabelle is the queen of killer ensembles. She always manages to mix whimsical pieces with hints of punky accessories (think: ivory lace shorts with leopard creepers) for an all-out adorbsfest we can barely handle. Here she wears a cream lace top paired with a sheer black maxi skirt and leather vest. For accessories, she wore THE Jeffrey Campbell red velvet platform "Tardy" boots and a triangular clutch for a look we're so in love with.
