Being in the fashion industry I’m always looking for extra stylish pieces either with unique flare or something that will stand out. One of the trends I’ve been loving is long vests. You might have seen them a lot this past fall but I’ve been watching gals keep them moving in to spring by pairing them with shorts or off-the-shoulders blouses. They are great at elongating your body and can be dressed up or down (a truly versatile piece). Let’s take a closer look and I’ll show you how to wear a long vest no matter the season!
I went for a 70’s inspired look by pairing this rust colored sleeveless vest (I wore a size 4) with my favorite flare jeans and a lace up blouse. To accessorize I added platforms, sunnies and a super cool necklace from Noonday. Noonday is a really neat company that my friend sales and a portion of the sells and a portion of the proceeds go to a variety of causes.
With an Off-The-Shoulder Top:
My friend Adriana over at Toasty A did an EXCELLENT job pairing her long vest with an off-the-shoulder blouse (the perfect way to take your vest in to spring and summer).
With Skinnies and Flats:
Hello Fashion went casual and comfy by wearing a beige vest with cropped skinny jeans and flats.
They can also transition for a great look for work by pairing with slacks or even culottes like The Art of Style.
