There are so many ways to wear a vest!
While vests aren’t entirely new, they seem to be everywhere now, making them a versatile fashion piece. What’s great about vests is that they can be worn in various seasons, giving you plenty of opportunities to incorporate them into your style.
Studio 5 Style Editor Daylan Dove, shares how vests have become a standout trend this season.
4 Ways to Wear a Vest
Vests have a certain confidence-boosting element. When a fashion piece is popular and trending, it’s easier to incorporate into your wardrobe because you see it everywhere. A vest offers an effortless layering piece that adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit.
Sweater vests, reminiscent of the ’90s, are making a strong comeback. They give a classic, polished feel, and there’s a certain nostalgia associated with them. Think of Cher Horowitz in “Clueless” and you’ll instantly recognize the style. Sweater vests can be worn alone or layered over dresses to create a versatile, standout look. Some companies even offer dresses with a built-in sweater vest, making it easy to experiment with this trend.
The Denim Vest
The denim vest is another option that may initially seem intimidating, but it’s a versatile and classic choice. Just as we confidently wear denim jackets, the denim vest provides a similar style point that is both easy to pull off and not as intimidating as it may seem. The familiarity of denim is what makes it work well as a vest. You can wear a denim vest with jeans for a double denim look, or mix and match it with other clothing items for an easy-going yet chic appearance.
The Statement Vest
The statement vest is designed to stand out. It’s a fashion piece that grabs attention, much like statement pants or tops. When wearing a statement vest, the goal is to let it shine while keeping the rest of the outfit relatively simplistic. With a statement vest, you can explore dramatic details, such as faux fur, suede, or bold shoulder elements. Everything else in your ensemble should draw the eye toward the vest, making it the centerpiece of your outfit.
The Puffer Vest
Puffer vests are not just for added warmth; they can be a stylish and comfortable fashion choice. While you may associate them with short-sleeve shirts, they also work well with thicker knit sweaters, adding an extra layer of insulation and polish to your outfit. Pair a puffer vest with joggers, a gold chain necklace, and comfortable sneakers for a stylish yet casual look that can be worn for various occasions.
These are just a few ways to incorporate vests into your fall fashion. The beauty of this trend is that you can shop your closet and style vests with items you already own. From sweater vests to statement vests, these versatile pieces can elevate your outfit and keep you on-trend throughout the season.
