If you’re like me, you like to try new trends with each season. What’s on-trend for this season? This season is all about the long vests, or sleeveless coats as some like to call them. These are the perfect transitional pieces, as you can wear them with a short sleeve while it’s still semi-warm and then with a long sleeve and layers as the typical fall weather comes.

This Fashionista wears this trend effortlessly; she pairs her long vest with a simple, black T-shirt, distressed, black skinny jeans and black booties. Oh, and she tops it off with a good ol’ floppy hat—another trend to try out this season. She works the fall color palette into her outfit by choosing her vest in a pretty rust shade, which is rather unique and eye-catching. It is complete with slits down the side to give it great movement and make it more comfortable. There is so much to love about this piece, but my favorite part is that it has pockets—as if it couldn’t get more perfect, right? Her look is casual-chic, perfect for a fall day.

To be perfectly honest, I think this Fashionista’s outfit would be totally cute without the vest because I’m an advocate for all-black outfits on the regular; however, the vest does add a nice seasonal touch that makes the outfit that much better.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Invest in pieces you can wear for multiple seasons, like this long vest. I plan on wearing it all year round because it’s totally possible—except maybe not during the frigid Chicago winter.”
