Whether it's a faux fur vest, a sweater vest, a puffer or quilted vest or a blazer or tuxedo vest, vests are everywhere right now. Of course, sometimes the most challenging part of seeing a trend or style that we love is how to make it work for us.
Well, for this post, I'm going to try and help you do just that - style a vest.
To get started, let's take a moment to talk about your waist.
One of the most important parts of your body to keep in mind is your waist when wearing a vest, especially since many are cut straight and if it's faux fur, for example, it can appear boxy. Yet, the beauty of a vest is it can be worn with pants, such as skinny or flair, or with a skirt, such as a pencil or trumpet.
Now, here are some points to keep in mind when styling a vest:
NOTE - Although I focus on the natural waistline in the above examples, vests that play off of the current drop waist trend also work to break up the eye's sight line.
One last note, be sure to also play around with the length of your base layer. Try pairing a shorter vest with a longer top or a longer vest with a shorter top and high-waist pants. This yin and yang will help to create an illusion of a waist.
As always, have fun with styling your vest.
