how to wear a vest {lots of inspiration!}

While it might be too warm for this Florida girl to appreciate a great winter coat, vests are perfection. Consider the versatility (and added warmth!) of layering it on and styling it up. Check out the more than a dozen ways to work it into your wardrobe. From work to weekend (and tip: swap out any denim looks for work-appropriate pants), vests give you the ability to layer and play around with textures and styles. Avoid bulky layers underneath as you’ll see below; it’s all about slim sweaters, button downs, long-sleeve tees and dressier looks when it comes to make a vest look most flattering on you.
