One of my favorite items in my closet is this black sleeveless vest. Whenever I wear it I feel chic, on trend and well put together. Like my collection of kimonos, a having at least one sleeveless black vest in your wardrobe is a must. This kind of vest is a timeless garment that can be dressed up or down. It can also be styled year-round.

On this particular day, I styled the vest with one of my go-to summer tops, as well as my favorite pair of jeans. Becuase I was headed out for a day date with hubs, I decided to wear a red lip. A nice pop of color on the lips is the easiest way to kick a basic outfit up a few notches. Adding an armful of bangles or beaded bracelets is also another way to amp up a basic outfit. So, I pulled out my beautiful Kambaba Jasper bracelet, c/o Joseph Nogucci, and layered it with a pair of bronze beaded bracelets I’ve had for years.
Hubs was happy that I finally decided to style my latest pair of platform flats. He picked them out for me a while back and I’m so glad he did. I LOVE them! I’m telling you, platform flats and oxfords have become “my thing” this season. As I mentioned previously, I don’t wear heels that often. However, I like to have a little height every now and then. Opting for a pair of shoes with a slight platform is a nice compromise.
So tell me, do you like how I styled my sleeveless vest? Do you have one in your closet? Let me know!

I’m really feeling your black sleeveless vest and your shoes here. I actually don’t own a sleeveless vest in black, but I do own one in off white and one in navy blue.

Thanks so much!
Sleeveless vests, FTW. I usually reserve wearing them in the cooler seasons. It’s way too hot for me to layer with a sleeveless vest. However, just like you did here, I can go with a sleeveless clothing item underneath. Thanks for the tip.

You are rocking this look. I don’t have any sleeveless vests, it’s just not a look I thought I could rock but you’ve shown some awesome ways to do so and I may have to invest in a vest. Thanks for the fashion tip. #BLMGirl
