2020 runways gave a special nod to 70s trends. One of those was undoubtedly the vest. The vest trend was spotted center stage in many shows, from Saint Laurent to Gucci to Louis Vuitton. What was clear from each presentation is that 2020 vest dressing can be more chic and hip than you imagine. I’m quite fond of the style for creating cool alternatives to traditional suiting. That’s what I’m doing in today’s post.
What I’m Wearing:
I saw this Theory vest in a TJ Maxx Runway store about a month ago. When the already reduced price was reduced further, I snatched it up. I envisioned wearing it in shorts suits (see shorts suit style inspiration here and here). I hoped that it would pair well with my black DIY Bermuda shorts, and it did. For a classic yet right-on-trend combination, I also added a striped tee. Et voila!
A vest like this would also look fabulous over a mini shirt dress (like this one). I also plan to wear mine with short shorts, joggers, and wide leg pants. I’m excited about all the styling possibilities actually. You too, right?
