Androgyny is a Girl’s Best Friend
I love understated androgyny. Pairing a completely boyish outfit with one or two hyper-feminine details is my shit. That’s why this Forever21 menswear-inspired vest looks perfect with leather oxfords and jorts (I’m completely over jean shorts too, but these boyfriend shorts are delightfully messy and still feel fresh). Take this understated outfit into high gear with some magenta Debbie Harry lipstick.
Proof that vests (despite their lack of any discernible function) can work at work. This is a business-casual “I working in media” outfit, though you could dress the vest up even more. I paired this Zara creation with a beautifully high-waisted pair of burgundy trousers and some gold-detailed heels. Add a white t-shirt or blouse, and you’re ready for a morning meeting.

Rusted to Perfection
Ugh this vest is almost too fabulous to handle. I love the rusty copper and statue of liberty green detailing, and the drapey fit is chic as hell. Throw on some fly disco pants and a mock turtleneck crop top (two of my favorite staples), and you’re ready for a night out.
Intimidating Black Leather
For those who are deeply interested in fashion, it’s sometimes about intimidation. Every once in awhile, you just want to look like a badass. What better way to channel your inner bitch than with head-to-toe black, leather, and a red lip.
The Classic Denim
Throw it over a sweater in the winter or a bralette in the summer, it’s an effortlessly cool look that should be a staple in every wardrobe. The Western floral embroidery elevates this particular incarnation of the jean vest. Yet, the floral is subtle enough to pair with anything. A little extra detail goes a long way.
