Styled 3 Ways: The Denim Vest

July 13, 2012


It’s no secret that I love layering my denim jacket over spring dresses (recent examples herehere and here).

However with the wild heat waves we’ve been having, wearing a sleeved jacket isn’t completely practical which is what has me loving a denim vest like this Topshop one. Layer one over pretty much any of your summer staples: a lightweight tee tucked in a mini skirt, a maxi dress or, a look I love even more is topping a dressier look with a vest for an edgier look for evening.

Styled 3 Ways: Denim Vest 1


Outfit 1: As mentioned, I love that the moto vest pairs down a more dressed up little number. I’d go minimal makeup (but maybe a killer eyeliner look) and a small clutch (so in love with this PS1 Pochette) while paired with black cage heels for a night out- a rooftop soiree perhaps?

Outfit 2: Staying cool is my main objective these days so lightweight tanks (I love the ones from the T by Alexander Wang line) and skirts that transition from day to night are ideal.

Outfit 3: This is an ideal look for Saturday brunch or afternoon cocktails. Keep cool with an asymmetrical maxi, espadrilles and balance the vest with gold jewelry.
Want even more inspiration? I love these looks on Anna and Helena, too. But tell me…which of the above looks is YOUR favorite?
***Happy Friday***

    I recently did a post on denim vests and am on the hunt for one. It is tough but I think I like look 3 best.

  3. I have almost the similar taste as you. I have a sleeve less denim which I use irrespective of weather. If it is cold I use it over my regular dress to protect my chest and if it is hot then I wear it just like that. Whichever way you wear, denim vest can create a style statement on its own. In the combinations you have given, I think I would go with Denim vest 1. Florals and denim are cool. The other two designs look plain. I liked all the combination in Denim vest 1. Minimal makeup would be just fine as your dress speaks it all. A matching earring would look stunning.
