Last week I got an email from a client who had kept a great Rebecca Taylor moto vest from a Style Box that I recently put together for her. She mentioned that she loved this item but had no clue how to wear it? This very question inspired today’s post, in the hope that it will give others some direction on how to incorporate this bold item in to your closet.
The moto vest is one of fall’s hottest pieces! Perfect to pair over many different items in your wardrobe, from maxi dresses, to patterned pants – these vests are as versatile as they are stylish. However, I find that many women are intimidated by moto vests as they can be a little bad ass and can give off a somewhat masculine vibe, if not styled properly.
To prevent this from occurring, I recommend pairing it with feminine pieces or layering it over a knits or patterned pants. Adding a vest to a flirty skirt/dress or romper can will give your style more dimension and provide you with a look that has a touch of downtown ease. In addition, pairing it with a sweater or a bold pant is the perfect go-to for fall, in that it adds texture and various patterns to your ensemble.
Here are my 4 favourite ways to style a moto vest for fall. From Forever 21 to Helmut Lang, moto vests are offered in a wide range of prices and styles. If you purchase one, I guarantee that this will be a great addition to your fall lineup.
