I am always trying to get the most out of every piece in my wardrobe, which means trying to dream up new ways to wear items that have not yet been seen here on this blog (it’s harder than it seems!). I recently purchased this Ann Taylor vest and absolutely love it as a layering piece. When I was trying it on with different outfits, I realized that it was long enough to wear on it’s own as a dress! Score!
Futuristic and super minimalistic styles are ones that I usually shy away from, not because I don’t like them (I love them), but because I felt like I couldn’t really pull them off. For this look, I am most definitely stepping out of my comfort zone and I really love the result. This vest is very structured so it was easy to feel fully covered and very sexy at the same time. Additionally, the leather details add such a special touch to the overall look.
Do you have a long vest that is hanging up in your closet? Why not try wearing it as a dress!? The next time I wear this vest as a dress, I may even add a belt to further define my waist or layer a long sleeve sweater underneath for cooler days. Really, the possibilities are endless.
Thanks for stopping by!
