Outfit #1

Utility vest, lace skirt, striped blouse, printed sneakers
Product Info: Vest- Aeropostale, Top- Charlotte Russe, Nail Polish- Deborah Lippmann, Skirt- H&M, Shoes- H&M, Earrings- 2b

Create a stylish yet laid-back ensemble by wearing a striped crop top with a cream-colored lace skirt.

Accessorize with statement earrings and paint your nails a minty fresh hue to complete the look.

For a casual yet trendy everyday outfit, pair the vest with printed shorts and a graphic tank top. Keep the neutral look going with slide-on sandals and an edgy fringed purse. Slip on a pair of tinted aviators, then accessorize with gold and black rings to finish off this look.

Outfit #3

Utility vest, midi dress, strappy sandals
Product Info: Vest- Aeropostale, Dress- Forever 21, Bag- ModCloth, Lipstick- NYX, Shoes- ModCloth, Necklace- ASOS

It doesn’t get any cooler than pairing a vest with a sundress. In this case, we paired our Fab Find with a printed cotton midi dress from Forever 21 that has an effortlessly chic vibe. Neutral sandals keep things daytime-appropriate, while a color-blocked beaded necklace is a fun touch. Grab a “foxy” tote and add a peachy lipstick to complete the look.

    I’m super bummed that they don’t have the palm tree print shoes in my size :( They’re too cute!

    Could this be worn with a long sleeve shirt too? Like for winter weather? I actually bought this exact vest before seeing the post. So how would you make this work for winter?
