9 Ways to Wear a Vest

A vest is one of the most versatile separates you can own, but you may need some ideas on how to wear this timeless wardrobe staple. Whether your vest is plain or decorated, and you want to wear it for day or night, we have a vested interest in helping you find the right style for you.
Belt It
The versatility of the vest is revealed from the red carpet, to a day out with your friends. For a plain black vest, jazz it up with a colorful belt and have fun with textured fabrics underneath. Get inspired by socialite Olivia Palermo who dons a red and blue sparkly belt with a black tuxedo vest over a white lace dress.
Go Sheer
Sheer, lace and crochet vests look great for spring and summer. Keep it light and airy by pairing the femininity of the vest with a plain top or dress. Actress Elena Furiase wears a light pink lace vest with a white crew-neck tee for a chic, but simple daytime look.
Be Boho
Embrace your inner bohemian and pair funky jewelry with beaded vests that come in a variety of colors. For those looking for an all-season shade, opt for warm neutrals like actress Gina Gershon’s sepia vest with turquoise and brown beads. Gershon keeps this look on trend with a chunky, ethnic-inspired necklace and a basic black tank.
Do Denim
Get “Glee” star Dianna Agron’s girl-next-door style with a basic denim vest. Mix bright colored tops with denim duds for a casual outfit to wear on a day out with friends. Agron goes preppy in this white vest with pockets and a red top.
Love Leather
If edge is something you want, take your look to the next level with a leather vest. Wearing a biker-inspired vest like actress Sasha Jackson’s motocross look, works for a night out with a basic black top, sleek pants or a miniskirt and pumps. Keep your jewelry simple to avoid looking overdone.

Layer It 
Ladylike collections walk down the runway every season, so it’s no wonder style icon Tyra Banks layers her beige vest with a tie-neck blouse in the same hue. The fitted vest shows off her curves and the sheen of the top adds a sophisticated touch, making day to night easy for busy women.
 Flaunt Fur 
Faux fur is flirty for fall and winter months, especially when paired with laid back locks. TV personality Samantha Swetra looks glamorous with minimal jewelry and a simple straight hairstyle. Decrease the bulkiness of fur by belting the vest or choosing one with a slim silhouette.
