Style Advice of the Week

Layering is one of my favorite aspects about fall/winter clothing. Unlike the hot summer months, we can actually get away with wearing a lot of layers. Layers can be hard to wear comfortably because they can become bulky and a nuisance with winter coats. However, take note from this week’s Fashionista for fuss free layering.

The key piece I love from this Fashionsita's outfit was her vest. It’s easy to layer over many outfits without adding another full layer! Her versatile denim vest looks effortlessly thrown over her cream high-low sweater, leggings and boots. Her outfit made for a laid-back but trendy look for class. It’s the best of both worlds: comfortable and stylish. I found three different vests that I think are a certified Fashionista must have.

Inspired by this week’s Fashionista, a basic denim vest is easy to layer. Go for a grunge look with a destroyed denim vest by pairing it with leggings with faux leather details and a long, oversized T-shirt. A pair of color, studded flats will add a feminine feel and top off the outfit.

The next vest is not your average vest that comes to mind. A tux vest is a fun alternative to the basic. For a more class friendly look, wear this vest with a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans, a blouse tucked in and a pair of leopard loafers. For more of a night look, pair this vest with a fitted tank dress and wedged booties.

Are you more a basic Fashionista? You can’t go wrong with a fitted puffer vest. The fur on this vest makes it a bit trendier than the average puffer vest. Wear it over your favorite sweater, a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans and a western style bootie for the perfect class and weekend look.

The versatility of a vest is what makes it a Fashionista closet staple. It can be worn now in the fall/winter but can also be brought into the spring/summer by just styling it differently. So, go on, purchase yourself a vest, or two!
