A light (mintgreen, nude, cream, white, light grey), sheer blouse, maybe pussybow, a shirt or a chiffon blouse and nude heels in patent.

Nude feather gilet from Zara- what to wear underneath?
I've bought an amazing nude-colored feather gilet from Zara, but I'm not sure what to wear it with.

(picture from Zara.com)

The "faux fur gilet worn over leather jacket"-trend was worn to death in Norway the previous fall/winter, and even though this feather gilet is quite different from the faux fur gilets from last year, wearing it over a leather jacket will be kind of...last year. So, how do I wear it? Any ideas?

Gorgeous vest!
I'd wear it just the way it's styled: over a sweater/ loose tee.
As for a jacket underneath, I'd choose a grey tweed/herringbone fitted one. The color and material gives quite a chic vibe so I'd wear grey or navy.

^^ i'd take a skirt + tank or a shorter, sleeveless dress that i wasn't ready to abandon when the weather gets a little bit colder and add that vest plus tights and boots to make it more fall-friendly! I'd keep the tones mostly neutral and earth-toned (rust, olive, mustard, cream, brown) as well to keep it away from last year's "fur-wearing winter witch edgy rocker leather black goth" kind of thing too if you're concerned about that as well

I hate most earth-tones due to over-using them in the past (I spent my twenties in shades of brown and green), but I must be able to find items in some "earthy" shades that can work- I imagine cool-toned taupe, which is a color I can tolerate, could be amazing with the vest.

It's the "faux fur vest over a black leather jacet goth-ish thing" I desperately want to avoid. And while Norwegian women in general have a tendency to not let go of trends until they're way past dead (like the 3/4 lengths leggings people have been wearing for four or five s/s seasons), and loads of women probably will be wearing leather jackets with faux fur vests this f/w too, I don't want to be one of the "worshippers of last year's trends league" .

I'd like to wear skirts and dresses more often, but I want a more casual look. How can I wear them without looking too dressed up?

@tigerlily -- first go for simpler dresses and skirts in more 'daytime' fabrics and avoid major embellishments... i'm a big fan of combat boots and a leather jacket combo to dress down a skirt....a grandpa cardigan and some ballet flats would do the trick too. converse sneakers are always cute with a tee, skirt, and some tights..... a messy bun, penny loafers, and a quirky totebag with a simple cotton dress and an oversized blazer with the sleeves rolled up.... or a maxi skirt with a plain tank and chunky flat shoes like creepers... a printed cotton sundress with flat strappy sandals and casual sunglasses and a cute straw bag... pair a faded rock tee with a black pencil skirt, flats, and a denim vest.... knee high flat leather boots with a plaid knee-length mini and a simple t-shirt-cut sweater.... so many options!

Thanks so much pixie dust and lafindesiecle. I have a lot of these items. I just didn't know how to put the look together.
