A great way to incorporate denim into your wardrobe besides wearing jeans is a denim vest. It seems the 90’s have come back with a vengeance and a denim vest is a great way to get back into the groove. But like most articles of clothing, there are some things you should keep in mind when wearing a denim vest.
3 Tips on Wearing a Denim Vest:
- My personal favorite looks when wearing a denim vest are with a summer dress or perhaps a tee with skinny jeans. Vest’s come in different sizes. With the summer dress, I’d probably go with a short cropped vest as opposed to a longer vest I might wear with skinny’s and a tee. It’s about proportion.
- Get a wash that will compliment your wardrobe or the season. If I were to buy a denim vest right now I would probably go with a light wash denim because of all the items in my closet I’m wearing for Summer.
- Make sure to try it on! Not all vest flatter. They can especially be tricky around the shoulder area. Also, my personal choice would be to go with a vest that’s not very fitted. This way I can comfortably wear a T-shirt under it and not feel like it looks bulky.
These are 3 great basic tips that will let you pull off a denim vest gracefully. I will most certainly be wearing my vest with dresses and skirts, its one of my favorite looks! What do you look for in a denim vest? Do you have any tips you think we may have overlooked?
