December 7th was a remarkable day for the inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro. However, its importance had nothing to do with the cultural scenario, politic events or what happens more often, soap opera endings. It was the hottest day in December until now: 39,8 degreees C (103,64 degrees F), according to the National Institute of Meteorology (Inmet). And it's not even summer yet.
When the felt air temperature rises to 45 degrees C (113 degrees F), it is almost impossible to wear anything that differs from light, short dresses. Sometimes, however, it feels as if there is something missing—something other than fresh air, obviously. Today's Fashionista shows that it's possible to solve your whole look with the addition of only one piece of clothing: a jean vest. Combined with a delicate-printed viscose dress (which matches her nail polish color) and studded transparent sandals, the jeans vest proves itself to be the key-piece of a summer rocker ensemble.
If you want to go for that modern, rock'n'roll vibe that seems to be intrinsic to this Fashionista, try out vests in materials such as jeans and leather. Kenzo launched a leather jacket fit in November that makes it possible to take away the sleeves and turn the jacket into an edgy vest. It costs US$1.315, but there are some inspired pieces with the same proposal in the market. If you're more of a classic kind of girl, tailoring vests are an office-friendly option during the summer. If we don't melt until then, of course.
