Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

Denim vests are the perfect transitional piece, since they can be worn throughout spring and summer, and even into fall. These vests look chic over everything from sweaters and long sleeves tops to tees and tanks. They even look fab when paired with a sundress!

As a bonus, these versatile layering pieces come in a bunch of different washes and styles, so there is definitely one out there to suit every style. In this post, I'll be showing you how to style a classic denim vest for both class and a night out:

Denim Vest: Class

Create a fresh look for class by pairing this denim vest with a navy and white striped top and white skinny jeans. These sand-colored suede ankle booties are not only perfect for spring, but also add to the preppy yet cool vibe of the outfit. Incorporate a few nautical-inspired touches of red with a structured tote and chic enamel bangle. Finish off this ensemble with dewy, rosy cheeks - you'll match the spring flowers blooming outside!

Denim Vest: Night Out

For a bohemian-inspired night out look, pair this denim vest with lacy black high-waisted shorts and a crop top with three-quarter sleeves. Wooden-heeled sandals are huge this spring, so add a pair with black straps and a thicker platform. (Bonus: this style is surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in!)

A double bar necklace adds just the right amount of shine, while a gray-blue foldover clutch lends a subtle pop of color. Have your makeup match the boho vibe of the outfit with a smoldering brown smoky eye, rose gold-colored fingernails, and a shimmery light pink lip.
