Three Vests To Revamp Your Borderline Boring Summer Uniform

When I think of vests (especially those of the denim variety), I tend to think either “western” or “‘rock star.” However, in its most recent incarnation, the vest has arisen as an entirely flattering, casual, and easy-to-wear essential.

Paired with a cute day dress or thrown over skinny jeans and a simple tee, a vest can easily turn a simple outfit into a finished look. To achieve a boho vibe similar to Kate’s above, add a fun accessory like a summer scarf or a long pendant necklace.

Check out three we like below:

1. This versatile dark denim choice by Madewell ($125) is ideal for wearing over basic summer pieces, from sleeveless dresses to extra long tees and tanks. And no need to remind you to avoid a head-to-toe denim ensemble.

2. Like a boyfriend blazer, Urban Outfitters’ long party vest ($58) can be cocktail or casual. Wear it over a sleeveless, simple monochromatic maxi dress for a dressier vibe, or over shorts and a a slouchy tee for a fun and edgier daytime look.

3. A bright knit option, like this shirred cashmere vest by Vince ($117), is a great way to add a pop of color to an otherwise boring tank and shorts/skirt combo. It’s also an ideal way to add an extra layer for breezy summer nights.
