Lace Up Hard Ware Vest, Extra Long Sleeve Top + Culotte: An On-Trend Look
Lace up detailing makes a very bold fashion statement and thankfully are not restricted to one style of clothing, rather they're universal, featured on shorts, pants, dresses, tops, sandals, boots, leggings and even lingerie. They add an extra dose of fab and an edgy touch to any look.
I’m pretty sure all Zara enthusiasts are familiar with this vest. Zara opened a new store in a nearby mall and I snagged this when I walked in to check it out. Before I walked in, my daughter made me repeat ‘I will not buy anything’ a few times. I came out with a handful of bags and ‘babe, I can explain’. The retort <<< don’t tell me they’re all trending or on sale so you had to get them>>> was hilarious but I kept a straight face. Who laughs when they’re being reprimanded by their 14 year old daughter!
How to Style
It's doesn't get any more effortless and versatile than a vest. Even more fabulous if it features lace up detailing.
Throw it over anything! Seriously guys, that just about sums it up!
Want a look that is as effortless as it's cool? Grab that vest and done it over a tank for a Summer ready look. Bare arms are in!
Vests especially long ones are very versatile. You can create many looks around this staple using pieces you already own. Shop your closet!
1. Throw it over a denim on denim for an instant upgrade.
2. A vest over a tank dress is one way I love to rock this trend. Remember this look here?
3. Stripes are in. A vest in a non competitive color over stripe dress breaks up a monochrome and looks very clean and polished.
4. Pencil skirts! Who doesn't love them! For an elegant business look, throw on a vest over a classic white shirt neatly tucked into a pencil skirt. Finish with pumps and look totally boardroom ready!
Are you getting an itch to do some vest shopping? I can't link mine on Shopstyle or Reward Style but theres this, this and this that I'm loving just as much.
I’m sporting an ultra stylish lace up vest with my trendy old faithful extra long sleeve shirt that I wear the heck out of. Yeah that one, and please don’t roll your eyes at me for that, Ha! This is just the beginning, you’ve seen it many times in the past and will see it a lot more times. A pair of matching culottes completed this polished and sophisticated look.
