Wool Vest Styled for a Night Out

Second up for our January features is this wool vest–being styled today for a night out. I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again, this vest is hands-down one of the absolute best pieces in my entire wardrobe. I feel like, no matter how I style it, it always looks effortlessly chic–exactly what I’m looking for in whatever outfit I put together.

Yesterday, I styled this vest for the office, and since I spend most of my days there, it’s the most typical styling you’ll see me in. However, I love how easily this structured piece can transition from day to night, and still look so cool and chic.

Wool Vest Styled for a Night Out

The challenge for me today was breaking away from that tried-and-true combination, to style in a way that is still work-appropriate but a little outside the box than my usual styling. This piece is fantastic because it really can go in many directions:

  • With [faux] leather pants, a fitted turtleneck and knee-high boots (like here)
  • With a bodycon dress and ankle boots or heeled sandals
  • With a pair of bold wide-leg pants, a fitted white turtleneck and heeled sandals

I think I could do an entire month focused on this vest, and the many ways to wear it, but today I opted for the classic silk blouse and boot cut trousers. I wanted to keep it classic with a pair of suede pumps and a structured bag–keeping the entire look very structured, with a lot of long clean lines. I personally like the elongating effect of this particular styling, being that I am so short. The long lines create the illusion of being taller, and have a chic, but understated feel.

Tell me what you think of this styling in the comments below–and tune in again tomorrow to see this vest go from a night out to weekend casual!

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.

What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
