Any well-dressed woman knows the power of an outfit with a vest.
Vests are the perfect accessory for any look, as they can add an element of sophistication and structure to even the most basic pieces from sweater vests when it's cool to waist coat vests all year.
But why stop there?
Let’s explore some ideas for how to incorporate vest outfits into your wardrobe and elevate your style.
Mix and Match Patterns
One way to really stand out is by mixing and matching patterns with your vest.
A classic plaid patterned vest will go great with a floral print skirt or top, while a striped vest can be paired with a geometric patterned top or bottom.
Not only does this create a unique look that will turn heads, but it also demonstrates that you understand the principles of fashion design.
For added flair, consider adding accessories like jewelry or shoes in one of the colors from the patterns you’re wearing.

The Statement Piece

Choose muted tones and subtle detailing when selecting your statement piece vest; something that stands out without being too loud or overwhelming is ideal.
