What I Wore Today: 11/19/2012 (Rosemint)

Rosemint outfit: black tights, black quilted boots, rosebud open-back dress, mint green sheer bow-tie blouse, studded-bottom bag, leather motorcycle jacket

My new favorite layering trick for fall is to

wear a sleeveless dress over a shirt or blouse

like it's a jumper. I loved the effect of this simple idea in this outfit, so a created a similar outfit (same boots and tights even) yesterday. For some reason both looks feel a bit mod and '60s to me. I like it.

What's your favorite unexpected way to layer for fall?
