How To: Wear A Vest, So As Not To Resemble A Groomsman

The vest. We are eyeing it everywhere. Yet like many a fall trend (ahem.. harem, jumpsuit), it looks good from afar, but we get it home and the item befuddles us. Well, not anymore.

Exaggerated sizes will be the most fun to style – whether that means draped, long, or boyfriend. A snug, classic fit can be a little too Annie Hall.

Pair your vest with a sheer, feminine blouse in a muted color, and choose either dark wash or black skinny jeans. This will keep your ensemble dressy, but not 90s female tuxedo dressy. Slip on some fun studded booties in a contrasting color to help liven up your palette, and store your evening makeup, etc. in a colored clutch (without too much embellishment).
