Structured Vest as a Dress

Vests are versatile pieces that can be worn to work or for a cocktail. They make you look put-together and chic with little to no effort. A fun way of styling them is as a dress, like I did today, and here are some tips on achieving the look:
  1. Quite essential would be a bodycon dress layered underneath, cause we need to keep it decent. 
  2. Add a colour blocking belt that has some details for more texture.
  3. When you fasten the vest, try fixing it to the side creating a slit. While walking, your leg will show and this will elongate you. 
  4. Add some fun accessories. 
  5. Add some ballerinas, if you're wearing this at the office, or high heels for a cocktail look. 
As you can see I opted for a choker and studded belt, both offer an edgy feel to the outfit creating more dimension. For the rest of the accessories, I opted for dainty bracelets and bow ballerinas  which compliment the bow belt. The look is classy, elegant but with a touch of edgy. 

What do you think?

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.
This is me whenever a bee/wasp/flying bug is flying too close, I get super scared yet my boyfriend finds it hilarious.

  2. I've always been afraid to buy a piece like this as I'm afraid I won't be able to style it or wear it with anything! You make it look so good though! I might try one on sometime! x

  16. I think this looks amazing on you and you pull it off so well! I'd definitely have to wear some sort of heel with something like this as I'm so short!

  41. That vest is such a wardrobe must-have! I have something similar and find that I can wear it so many ways. Works well during warm weather with something sleeveless underneath and works well in fall and winter for layering. I will actually be sharing a layering post on Friday with my similar vest!
