Vests are back with a vengeance this summer! This fun piece comes in all shapes and sizes. If you are hesitant about wearing a summer vest, don’t brush it off right away, as it isn’t your typical boring suit vest. The summer vest is anything from military inspired utility vests to vests with fringe and everything in between. A few of our favorites for summer are the utility vests in army green, the classic denim vest, a bohemian fringe vest that’s either crocheted or suede and the sleeveless blazer. There are many different ways to wear these different types of vests. It can sometimes be a little tricky to figure out just the right look, so we’ve pulled together a few of our favorite ways to wear each of the different vests that we mentioned above. Don’t be afraid to try this look, as anyone can pull it off!
The Military Inspired/Utility Vest
We love this particular vest paired with a graphic tee and jeans. It also works great with a t-shirt dress like the striped one shown below.
The Classic Denim Vest
Like the military/utility vest, the denim vest can be worn with basics as that final touch to complete your outfit. It works great layered over tees, striped pieces and even maxi dresses.
The Fringe Vest
The fringe vest is a bohemian piece that some of our clients would typically steer away from. However, this is a great piece to try if you like the bohemian look but don’t normally wear that style. Just pair it with a basic tee or tank, and let your vest be your statement piece!
The Sleeveless Suit Jacket
The sleeveless blazer is a very versatile piece. It can be dressed down when paired with a basic tee and shorts or jeans, as shown below. However, this piece can also be dressed up and can be a great go-to piece that is definitely office appropriate!
