Wondering How to Style a Black Vest Outfit? This is a fun look that I wore to date night last night. I love how a vest pulls in a flowy top and defines one’s waist. This is a cute flowered voile tunic by Cabi (old) that I wore over a black silky camisole (as voile is quite sheer).
How to Style a Black Vest Outfit
I wore a black vest by Cabi (old) over black J.Jill cotton essentials pant (this year). I love the narrow leg of these pants with a small slit at the ankle.
For a purse I wore my Coach pebble leather cross body bag, a silver multi-stranded necklace and fun silver sparkly small ball shaped stud earrings from Talbots (this season). I wore black suede AGL ankle booties (this season).
See how boxy my figure looks here without the vest.
Doesn’t the outfit look more flattering with the black vest? The dark color is slimming and the pointy edges draw the eye down in an attractive way. What do you think? Do you agree?
The last point about this outfit is the dark colors of the print make the outfit look more wintery than if it was a lighter color floral. So even thought I’m in a warmer region of the country, I still like to dress in a seasonal way. If I lived in a cooler spot, I would substitute black knit or wool pants and possibly a black blazer instead of the vest.
Thanks for reading How to Style a Black Vest Outfit! Happy early January!
1, girl, (Gurrrl!) you couldn’t look boxy if you tried!
2, I never thought about a black vest in this way, but you’re right. Adds a nice finishing touch to an outfit.
Take care and enjoy your "winter break!" xoxo M
