Talk about weather-appropriate layering!

How entirely out of context it is for me to be talking about layering in this weather! But maybe as the tail end of the year approaches the slightly (very slightly) lower temperatures may give some legitimacy to this post, so here goes.

There's something to be said about layering and yes I'm saying it now. It really is kinda rather fabulous to have on a coat over a jacket over a vest over a shirt over a dress over a tee is it not? There is just one slight glitch though. It's 32 degrees celsius out here in the Singapore heat, so what's are we red dot fashionistas to do? Simple! Layer light and layer smart! Think Leandre Medine AKA the Man Repeller or Susie Lau of Style Bubble fame. We can all take their cue on unconventional layering! Just remember to keep all the layers of clothing light, breathable, easy and breezy (but no, not like a 'covergirl').
