I’ll admit I am a bag girl through and through. But another weakness of mine in the closet department, is coats and jackets. I have quite a few ranging from puffy, insulated and practical to thin, unlined and stylish, which let’s be honest, the latter description isn’t always useful when it comes to the harsh winter weather we experience here in New York. What ends up happening instead is, most of my light to mid-weight coats only get worn during spring and fall, and then hang idly in the closet, until it warms up again. It feels like such a waste. Then recently, one of my clients and I came across these amazing and super thin Ultra Light Down Vests and Jackets by Uniqlo. Life changing. Seriously. All of a sudden, I was able to wear some of my favorite jackets that previously had left me freezing in the winter, simply by slipping on one of these feather-weight babies underneath my favorite overcoat. I highly suggest you check them out – they really do make a difference.
Below, I created three Paper Doll mini videos on how I layered a few looks with the same navy blue vest, three different ways! xo
