I picked up this denim vest in the late spring but was struggling with how it could work as a transition piece into fall and winter. Pulling different pieces from my closet, I was able to come up with three different looks to wear my denim vest for fall:
Mudd Denim Vest, Kohls (unavailable, try this similar option) | Sweater (similar) | Gap 1969 Always Skinny Black Jeans | Steve Madden Booties | House of Harlow 1960 Bracelet | Prima Donna Necklace
Adding a denim vest to a simple sweater and black denim combo instantly adds interest and jazzes the plain outfit up. Bold accessories, such as a statement necklace, and my favorite pair of booties brings this outfit from 'blah' to 'BLAM!'
Mudd Denim Vest, Kohls (unavailable, try this similar option) | Merona Plaid Shirt, Target | Full Tilt Skater Skirt, Tilly’s | Kelly & Katie Booties, DSW (similar) | mark. Watch (unavailable, try this similar option)
You might remember this outfit from my Bloggers Who Budget
post a couple weeks ago-- it has since become a favorite look of mine! Plaid is perfect for fall and I love the feminine fit of skater skirts-- the vest tops it all off making this such a fun layered look. Too cool out for bare legs? Add a pair of tights!
Mudd Denim Vest, Kohls (unavailable, try this similar option) | Black Dress (similar) | Pointelle Tights | Jessica Simpson Boots (similar)
Speaking of tights, for the last outfit I paired the denim vest with a LBD, pointelle tights to keep warm and knee high boots that I had in the back of my closet. Understatedly simple, yet totally pulled together.
What's your favorite denim vest look?
