Not all fashion trends are worth the effort, especially if you’re old enough for it to be your second time around (think neon colors, acid washed jeans, and pleated silky shorts.) But, the denim vest is an exception. It’s such a versatile piece, I dare say anyone could make it work.
Here are some reasons I love the denim vest:
- it’s a perfect layering piece for transitioning into Fall
- provides a great barrier for modesty when a tank top is a little too tight
- provides a structured look when wearing unstructured pieces/outfits
- disguises and hides lumps and rolls in the mid-section
- dresses down a fancier outfit
- gives you an edge
There are some things we need to focus on though when wearing the denim vest because we want to be more Tiffany Thiessen and less Tiffany Amber Thiessen. So remember that shades and distress level of the jean matters especially when you are wearing jeans. The length matters too because you don’t want to look like a 16 year old, you want to rock the vest on a more upscale level because let’s be honest, most of us are rocking it for the 2nd time around.

Just because it’s basically summer, doesn’t mean we have to stop layering our clothes. That’s why pieces like denim vests exist, for the sole purpose of giving our outfits some dimension. Whether you’re going for a clean look with whites and a lighter wash, or fulfilling your inner rock star with ripped jeans and a vintage tee, there are many ways to integrate a jean vest into your wardrobe.
