Whether you’re at a concert or a bonfire, cool summer nights call for layering. One piece I have seen in boutiques and stores all throughout the summer is the denim vest. Extremely versatile and chic, denim vests can be dressed up or down to create so many different outfit combinations. Like this Fashionista, I love styling mine with a maxi dress. It allows for plenty of room for accessorizing by adding a belt, jewelry and fun shoes.
When shopping for that perfect denim vest, it is important to decide whether you want one in a light or dark wash. If possible, find a vest in a darker wash so that it can transition from summer into fall, as well. Madewell (famously known for their denim) always has cute vests, including this one. As for maxi skirts, this one from Forever 21 is perfect to accessorize with. I love to enhance my outfits with a belt, and this leopard print one from J.Crew is to die for.
How To: Start off with finding a denim vest you love. Next, layer it with a solid colored maxi dress. Once you have done so, decide on how you want to accessorize. This Fashionista did so with her handbag, belt, necklace and bracelets, but you could also make it work with just one item. Once you have chosen just the right amount of jewelry, it is time for shoes. When it comes to wearing maxi dresses, I try to wear some type of heel so it doesn’t seem like I am being swallowed in my dress. Pick out your favorite wedges, grab your purse and your outfit is set!
