I like layering clothes. I was once told by my sister that we both share an affinity with the fall winter season. Others love summer wardrobes and light layers with bare skin but i feel comfortable in coats, volumes and cover ups. It is just the visual layering of colors and textures that give me delight. But despite this leaning to layering there is one other aspect that delights me other than fashion. It is hardly sexual but it can be. It is the act of taking off the clothes. You heard it right. I did a term paper once on how clothes are worn because they are meant to be taken off. I like the feeling of taking each layer slowly, carefully, like revealing one look hidden and another and another. This unravelling or unlayering is one delightful striptease. It is probably why it was considered extremely sexy for guys to see fully covered women in the 1800s to show a bit of ankle or a bit of skin much more when they try to take off all the layers of clothing women wore that time. There is such a strong sense of bottled sexuality in a skin less look.

So i guess it is why i find the Jedi looks so sexy. ITs all those layers and all that sexiness covered up in those chic cotton linens. As they say "the force is strong in this one". Talk about sex appeal:)
