With winter months coming to a close, it’s time to wear your favorite pieces until you have to put them into the back of your closet until next winter. There’s nothing that says winter weather more than wearing a vest. They are the perfect piece; you can layer them under coats, wear them over flannels for a causal look or even dress them up with a skirt or dress.

Vests have always been in style and come in a variety of colors, fabrics and designs. No matter the style, from fur to denim to leather, add a vest to your outfit and you are sure to stand out. This Fashionista rocks the vest trend in her quilted navy vest from J.Crew. This piece is a perfect neutral as she can wear it with any color or pattern and it will look great. I like how this Fashionista pairs her vest with a simple T-shirt, which she dressed up with a Kendra Scott necklace that adds a great pop of color. Whether you wear a fur vest with your favorite dress or a sporty vest over your workout outfit, you will be styling wherever you go.

Of course no outfit is complete without the perfect purse. Her Michael Kors purse’s gold details tie into the gold details of the vest, bringing her whole outfit together. This look is perfect to wear while hanging out with friends or while out and about in town.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I think vests are the perfect element to add to my outfit to keep it interesting and fun, but they are also functional because they keep me warm in these cold winter months.”
