Styling a Denim Vest

Vests! Vests! Vests! So many to choose…so little time…

  

I love to have a variety of clothing and accessories to mix and match and have fun with but really all you need is one denim vest. Let me tell you how this denim vest project got started. My friend, Alison Lape Palassis, or aka @ap4esl, who I met from sharing stories and antecdotes about our lives as Moms, teachers, and self- proclaimed fashionistas on Instagram, commented on one of my outfits of the day that she liked my vest and finds her own so versatile. We talked about all the different ways a denim vest can transform an outfit and thought it would be fun to write a blog post about it. So, this is what we came up with! Hope you find yourself inspired to play with your clothes and come up with your own ideas for using a denim vest or other of your favorite pieces in different ways!

We love the way a denim vest can change the look of a classic leopard dress.


We used a denim vest to make another look with our beloved dresses fromhttps://www.candycourtboutique.com! Alison’s jewelry was handmade for her by an appreciative parent of one of her students.

The talented and generous parent is Alejandra Santiago Garcia.

   Here are some skirt / tee shirt looks we created incorporating our basic denim vests.

  
Dresses are fun and certainly easy wear on their own but a vest can change a cocktail dress to a casual look and make you feel like you have an entirely different outfit on.

  
I like to add a vest to a summery strapless dress or tank top to make it more work appropriate.


And of course we love to pair our favorite denim vests with another favorite – stripes!


Now, here’s where it really gets fun- We created what we think are the ultimate best 10 ways to wear a denim vest ! Hope you enjoy the next 10 posts as much as we enjoyed creating them !
