What’s trending this season? It’s a long (vest) story. Sleek. Polished. Streamlined. A long vest makes a big statement, but is still quite practical.

Check out three very different looks for inspiration on how to style this must-have piece for multiple occasions.

Casual Encounters

Want to amp up your everyday wardrobe? Think pink. A double-breasted vest paired with an off-the-shoulder top shows a hint of skin–perfect for the season. Give the look a sporty spin with boyfriend jeans, sneakers and barely there nail polish.

Long Vest, Banana Republic – $89.99  / Top, H&M – $29.99 / Jeans, Nordstrom, $55 / Adidas Sneakers, Finish Line – $79.99 / OPI Nail Polish, HSN – $9.50

Midnight Blues

No curfew tonight. Dress to impress for an evening out with a floor-sweeping vest. Layer it with a floral shirtdress and knee-high boots. Remember that a moody color palette works extremely well for fall and winter. And if you want to define your shape, cinch your waist with a belt. Add a swipe of plum lipstick and you’re ready for anything.

Giving Thanks For Great Style

This Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving), food and fashion go hand in hand. Channel mod vibes with a ’70s-inspired getup that plays with proportions. Get decked out for dinner in a suede mini skirt, striped tee and burgundy waistcoat. Multiple people to visit? Travel around town in eye-catching flats like these metallic oxfords for a fun twist.
