See me above vibing the vest- I just took an old H&M raincoat and cut off the sleeves. Originally I was inspired by the muscle tee phenomenon from a little ways back and decided to try it with an outer layer. I'm wearing a BCBG spaghetti strap dress, layered a sheer DKNY long sleeve, then added the vest coat, which has been the perfect lightweight layer for fall!
Since you can't go wrong with layers on layers this fall, play with adding a long vest piece to polish off your look. Vibe the vest- wear with a dress or long sleeve & skinnies, sport a vest coat, maybe even belt off a thick scarf to create the look. See the vest scarf below:
For layering this fall- keep mixing textures- sheer and knit pieces are great because they expose the under layers. For a basic vest vibe: start with skinnies, rock a crop or sports bra, add a sheer blouse or tee, then your long vest layer. (Remember the key to wearing a crop and sheer pieces is to add other layers over them that tone down the skin exposure- whether it's high waisted pants or a vest- leave some skin to the imagination.)
