When we reflect, vests have been in use for a while. However, it wasn’t until the 1970s that they started to appear frequently in womenswear as casual work attire. Vests were fashionable for women in the late 1990s and early 2000s as part of their regular wardrobes.
Coming back in recent years, a practical vest, whether woven or tailored, is a must-have. Though an old accessory, there are ways to style it that breathe new air into an outfit. Here are a couple of ideas:
Though puffer vests aren’t precisely fashion statements, they make for an excellent wardrobe staple. It can be paired with faux leather pants and a beanie for a casual but chic look.
In the fall, when it’s cold, another great option is styling it with cozy knits and sneakers. You will not only be warm but look great as well.
For an oversized puffer jacket, be bold and wear it with a belt. This will draw you in and draw the eye to the synched waist.
This is an easy-to-style vest option that can be dressed up and down. It can be worn over a buttoned-down shirt with tailored suit bottoms for a business-casual look.
Similarly, you can wear your woven vest over a long-sleeved, pull or round-neck top with a pair of denim and heels for a girl boss vibe.
Though they are mainly thought to be too official, you can be edgy and wear them as is without wearing them over any shirt. For a cleaner look, ensure the pants and vest match color.
Woven vests are the most versatile. They allow you to experience your creative side fully. Paired with booties, midi or maxi dresses, woven give a lovely Boho look.
Pair your woven vest with a tennis skirt and sneakers for a playful look. The same can be achieved over a button-down shirt and a pair of shorts.
In the fall, a woven vest can be worn over an oversized dress shirt and tights, and you can finish the look by pairing your outfit with boots.
Fur vests can either break or make your outfit. They can be hard to style without looking tacky.
Fur vests pair wonderfully with darker and solid-colored tops. For vests that go beyond your waist, pair them with skinny jeans and figure-hugging leather pants and synch your waist with a belt.
Fur vests also pair nicely with leather shorts, worn over tights, and with cuff-length boots.
Paired with a fitting dress, fur vests add texture and dimension to your outfit –classy. With a knit mini-dress, pair your vest with knee-high boots for that perfect look!
Though fleece is incredibly lightweight, its warmth has always been its greatest selling point. It is a totally synthetic fabric made from tightly woven polyester fibers that have been brushed to give the surface the appearance of pile.
For streetwear, do not be afraid to color block. Color blocking is extremely effective at flattering your figure, regardless of body type. This year’s interpretation of color blocking features vibrant hues, striking statement pieces, and unexpected color pairings. This bold fashion trend has previously been in style.
When layered over other tops, Fleece vests give a dynamic yet chic look. They work best with pants for bottoms, with canvas or sneakers for an athleisure look.
