Wardrobe Staple: The Denim Vest



Images 1/2 via The Northern Light.  Image 3 via Stockholm Streetstyle. Image 4 via The Front Row View

Issue alert! I feel as if my wardrobe is missing out on a key summer staple, the denim vest. Two trend setters that rock jean vests with casual confidence are Hedvig of The Northern Light and model Kate King. Take Hedvig's cue and top off a summer dress with a denim vest or add one to skinny jeans and heels to create urban appeal. For more laid back ladylike looks I love the way King combined her distressed vest with a billowy floor grazing skirt one day and an accordion pleated skirt on another. One of the best things about the denim vest trend is that you don't have to break the bank; check out a few of my favorite finds below.
