Today's Lesson: 
How to style a jean vest

A jean vest can be a great completer piece. It's wonderful for the summer, too, because it adds a nice finish without adding much warmth to an outfit. I made this jean vest from an old jean jacket and added the lace for a little extra detail. You can read the tutorial here.

Here are a couple ways I've worn by jean vest:

Over a tank top with a maxi skirt

I struggle sometimes with wanting to wear a tank top to school but not being ok with the width of the straps. Adding a jean vest over top covers the straps but also adds a little detail to what could be a basic outfit. 

Over a nicer dress

I got this dress and really love the fit, but it seems a little too dressy for day to day at school. Adding the jean jacked dressed it down a little bit!

Over a basic tee

Plain tees are my go-to top in the summer. They are comfortable and go with so much. Adding the vest over the tee just completes the outfit without adding warmth. I haven't worn this outfit *yet* but it's in the plan for when school starts up in the coming weeks!

I've started a Pinterest board to gather jean vest ideas. Check it out!  Have you styled a jean vest? I would love to see your post and add it to my board.
