Long Vests Are The New Long Coats (Sorry, Sleeves!)
November 19, 2013
What’s that you say? Winter fashion is tres boring? Oh come on, you just haven’t stepped outside your comfort zone yet!See, there’s much more to winter dressing than layering and knit hats (OK–than knit everything). It really isn’t just all about the possibility of thigh high boots or ankle length coats (despite how crazy practical and fashionable those are).
Yes, to be fair, winter fashion includes all of those things, but it is also so, so much more. In the warmer months of the year, it’s OK to be lazy with your style. After all, a cropped top and a pair of open-toe pumps will do. But in the winter, your creativity is challenged, your wardrobe questioned, and honestly, there’s a little thinking outside of the box to be done in order to claim your colder weather fashion prowess. And mastering the long vest is the first step toward that honor.
Long vests are perfect for layering, sure, but can you make a winter vest your outfit’s “look at me now” piece? Try layering it over a chunky knit sweater or pairing it with tights to pull it off as a dress. Whatever you do, these 9 finds are about to get your creative styling juices flowing.
