"Add Edge to Your Classy & Girly Pieces with a Denim Vest"
Denim vests are casual, cool and versatile. What you should love about them is how to can instantly add some edge to any garment you have in your closet - no matter how classy or girly the outfit is!
You can find these casual vests in various styles - from the oversized to tiny cropped style, to different embellishments and hip denim washes. With me, I prefer mine solid with a subtle fade in a medium blue shade - it's versatile and works best with the rest of my wardrobe - from my pretty floral dresses to tailored dress shorts.
How to Wear a Denim Vest
Doing the "Double-Denim"
It's not a fashion taboo today as it was 10 years ago! Denim-on-denim is a cool way to create a strong fashion statement and look on-trend. The trick to pulling off this look is to off-set the country costume vibe by adding modern texture and interest.

This is how you do it:
Chic ways to style it
One of the stylish ways to wear it is to mix various clothing styles in one. You'll also stretch your personal style envelope this way as well. For example, if your clothing style is Classic - wear the denim vest with a sleek tunic shirt dress - or a pair of tailored shorts and white dress shirt!

Also think texture, texture, texture! Pair the vest with wool knits, leather, ruffles, prints and lace! Not everything in one outfit, of course.
Speaking of wearing different styles in one - pair the cool-and-casual vest with a pretty piece - something that is opposite from the edgy vibe it gives. Like for example high heels or a floral print dress.
Dress your body shape
So if you have an Inverted Triangle or Apple body shape - or you have a prominent bust, then you need to pair the vest with a garment that creates curves around the hips. But this also requires you to wear a slightly fitted or shrunken vest to avoid looking clunky from top to toe.
