Throughout the decades, trends have come and gone in the blink of an eye, leaving us laughing at pictures of our parents’ outfits, the way I’m quite certain our kids will do about us someday. That being said, few trends have ever withstood the test of time the way the beloved jean jacket has. Over the years it has been bedazzled, fringed and embroidered in every which way possible and now the latest trend in denim is the vest. The jean vest is perfect for these hot summer days and a great take on a classic look we have all grown up loving.
I spotted this Fashionista in the middle of a New York heat wave, looking nothing but cool in her denim vest ensemble. She started off the outfit with a basic black tank top which balanced out the vibrant tribal printed skirt. Her jean vest adds a punch of style featuring a fresh collar and an embellished zipper. This Fashionista then accessorized with some funky jewelry and a neutral bag making it clear that the weather wasn’t the only hot thing on this summer day!
The jean vest is amazingly versatile and can be worn with an array of outfits. Take a note from this Fashionista and try pairing a denim vest with a colorful skirt or over a casual dress (short or maxi). Easily transition this look from day to night by adding a fabulous pair of wedges and some colorful jewelry for a date-worthy outfit. If you love the look but want to try something a little less traditional, don’t be shy to try a printed denim vest. For our girly Fashionistas, try out a floral denim print or for our edgier girls rock out a skull print.
No matter what your style is, there’s sure to be a denim vest out there just waiting for you to make your own. So snap away Fashionistas; judging by history this trend is something that no one will be laughing at in the future.
