The new interpretation of the military vest from last season has a slight safari inspired vibe to it … and I love it! It’s cleaner, and more tailored than the vests we saw last year, with a nipped waist and polished accents. Since we are smack in the middle the transition dressing season, a vest adds some much wanted layers without addition weight. It was almost 90 degrees today in the Philadelphia area. I snuck out to lunch with my husband and couldn’t sit outside because we were roasting.
The obvious way to style these are just as they are pictured above, with a classic white tee and your favorite jeans. I would also throw it over a tee shirt dress for a casual weekend/ running errands outfit or glam it up by wearing it over a pretty gingham blouse with a statement necklace .
Regarding price point, stay on the low end. This is not a “wear forever” piece. It’s a trend that you’ll enjoy but it should be priced accordingly. I would personally keep it under $75.00. In the assortment below, I kept everything under $150.00.
