Classy Ways to style Vests + Outfit Ideas

This post is all about how to style the classic tailored vests for casual or Business Casual looks.

The classic tailored vest is popular, and there’s a lot of variety. I really love vests because they can be dressed up or down, making them perfect for work, casual wear, or even layering over dresses for a chic look.

So, if you’re looking for a trendy and versatile addition to your wardrobe, a vest is a great choice and here are styling options.


Casual Looks

Wear with Wide-legged Blue Jeans

Balance out the wide legs with a fitted vest. Add a graphic tee or a flowy tank top underneath for a relaxed vibe.

Wear with White Jeans

Create a crisp and summery look by pairing a white vest with white jeans. Add a pop of color with a bright tank top or a statement necklace.
