Sometimes, the sacrifice of fashion over comfort is necessary.

It is too hot for my body to adorn my battle armor leather jacket (unless it's a rainy day), I make the alternative of wearing my leather vest instead. 

Vest/Clutch: Forever 21
T-shirt/Boots: Thrift
Jeans: DIY
Though it is not exactly hot temperature nor high humidity friendly (warning: sweaty neck!), I feel as if my studded leather vest completes any of my outfits. 

I compromise by combining it with a light weight t-shirt and shredded jeans that cool down my legs.
 Winter, spring, summer or fall, you can always add leather and metal to your outfits!
