What garment is so practical it can provide both warmth and style? A VEST, of course! It may be the most versatile garment in your wardrobe right now.
What will the weather be today? Chilly in the morning, but by afternoon– blazing hot. (At least that’s how it is here in Texas.)
Not cool enough for a full-fledged jacket? Try a vest instead.
Here are a few of our “VEST” ideas:
Layer Your Outerwear
This red vest is layered with two tops. A
Vests don’t have to be boring. Think of them as accessories that will add texture, pattern, and interest to a basic outfit.
Long or Short
You get to choose which length is best for you.
A kimono vest might not be as warm, but it can add a bit of boho to any pair of jeans.
Mix Pattern and Print
Don’t be afraid to experiment with prints and pattern. I love this herringbone quilted vest with this red and white stripe.
Nothing says glamour like faux fur. It will take you right into the holiday season.
Bottoms Up Color
Choose a vest that is the same color as your shoes/boots. It will instantly pull your outfit together.
A vest can be considered a third-layer piece. And as we say in Quintessential Style, “Adding a third layer piece to any outfit will instantly elevate the look.“
Be daring. Experiment with pattern, print, texture, even shine. So go shopping in your OWN CLOSET right now–and pull out that vest!
I do love vests and the ones you have shown here are great…except I don’t think I will ever mix plaids.😁
