Spring is the perfect season for layering your sleeveless coat over a sweater. It provides you with just that extra layer of warmth and it looks very fashionable :). Combine the sleeveless waistcoat with a striped sweater, your comfy skinny jeans and some cute sneakers and then you can fashionable go out the door for a stroll to the market on the weekend.
