We are in love with the denim vest right now; this latest incarnation of the denim jacket is perfect for the warm summer months.  This 90’s throwback trend has a fun retro flare that looks great no matter what the occasion.  We’ve seen celebrity fashionistas like Emmy Rossum, Blake Lively, Chanel Iman and Gwen Stefani rocking the denim vest in all sorts of stylish ways this season. Some celebrities opted to pair their denim vests with bold boho maxi dresses and sheer flirty sundresses. While other celebs stuck to the classic denim-on-denim look, opting to pair their denim vests with other denim pieces like skinny jeans and cut off shorts.  We think a wear-with-everything denim vest is the perfect thing to throw on this summer.

The denim vest trend can be a little tricky to wear at times, when styled properly it’s an ultra-chic look, but if styled improperly it has a somewhat farmer-esque vibe. It’s important to keep in mind the cut of the vest; cropped vests tend to be the most flattering option, even for women with larger busts. Just be mindful never to button up your vest, similar to how you would wear a cardigan.  Also, denim vests tend to have a more masculine appeal, so try pairing them with florals and bright feminine colors to add balance to your ensemble.
