STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: InVESTments

Summer is filled with internships, babysitting gigs, brunches, time with family and beach trips with friends. There are so many different occasions to dress for and so many amazing on-trend options. For summer 2015, there has been a huge increase in crop tops, flatforms and culottes. A recent trend that has caught my eye is the vest. It’s a vintage item brought back and made modern with embellishments that make it the perfect summer item.

This Fashionista made fabulous use of her detailed vest for a sunny L.A. day. Paired with a grungy charcoal tank top, this Fashionista made her vest the standout piece in her outfit. The intense embellishments, featuring rose gold, silver and gold sequins and beads, accentuate the deep army green of the vest and pair perfectly with the dark gray in the tank top. In true L.A. fashion, this Fashionista finished her look off with a pair of ripped up skinny jeans.

The Fashionista made sense of her vest, allowing it to be the center of attention by limiting her accessories. Her shoes are simple, patent leather loafers, which are another hot summer/fall 2015 trend. She wears a chic gold hand chain and lets her natural glow take over with minimal makeup.

Vests are a wonderful option for your summer wardrobe. Whether it’s denim, thrifted, leather or blinged out, it can be the centerpiece of any look. Paired with jeans, joggers or even a bandage skirt, vests can be taken from summer casual to nighttime-chic in a hot second. Just follow this Fashionista’s lead and find a solid tank top or even a crop to layer underneath!

Finding something to wear for every occasion in our summer schedule can be hectic. Throwing on a vest can take an outfit from bleak to chic and is the perfect top layer!
