Sleeveless Coat

sleeveless coat title image

I couldn’t get myself to buy a sleeveless coat no matter how flawlessly it completes any given outfit; so I found the next best thing – a convertible vest that doubles as a scarf. Isn’t that perfect? When it gets too cold and I couldn’t get away with wearing a light sleeveless coat, I can still use it as a scarf.

I don’t normally wear outfits that lack color; I’ve always loved an outfit that has a good pop of color in it. But since fashion is all about taking risk and trying on new things, I decided to do just that and I didn’t think it was that bad.

As I’ve mentioned in one of my posts, Fall Must-Haves, sleeveless coats perfectly go with just about anything. I love how it made my otherwise plain-looking outfit instantly chic without too much effort.

    That vest is adorable. I usually wear very understated colors so it would suit me just fine! haha

    This is such a cute outfit! I love how simple it is, and that it’s perfect for layering and adding a pop of color for an extra detail.

    Here in south Florida, we really don’t need coats (I don’t own one.) The convertible vest is very appealing to me. Something to add color and style without too much weight.

      Definitely and it’s dual purpose as well. I want to go back to Florida, we went there last year for my daughter’s birthday and I’m wishing we can go back soon.

      Yeah, I don’t like the bulkiness of the coat that’s why I like fall better than winter because you get to layer up but not too much. 🙂
