How to Style a Sweater Vest

I work from home so most days you’ll find me in jeans and a t-shirt or leggings and a tunic. That’s just how I roll.

But every now and then, I have to meet a potential client for coffee or have an actual business meeting and that requires real clothes. So when Chadwick’s of Boston wanted to send a few bloggers their boyfriend sweater vest for a spring style challenge, I thought “let’s see what I can do” and accepted the challenge.

I chose the navy as that is my color of choice these days. I LOVE navy. I incorporate it into my handbags, my jewelry and wear it an average of 3-4 times a week.

Now what to pair the sweater with? I immediately gravitated toward jeans and a white button down tunic complete with my favorite TOMS booties. However, the¬†super fashionable¬†Ellen from That Chic Mom beat me to it. (So you can be sure it’s a good look.) After digging through my closet a bit more, I decided to showcase a dressy casual look. This outfit would be great for a day date or any coffee house meeting. I found some fun spring palazzo pants and a white blouse from The Limited. My navy wedges from Aerosoles completed the look, along with a tassel necklace and, of course, a KEEP Collective bracelet.

It’s comfortable, I feel cute and it’s great for spring-like weather. If it’s a bit chilly, I can always swap out a long-sleeve shirt. A huge thanks to Chadwick’s of Boston for sending the sample and allowing me to have a little fun, and to my seven year old who had to play photographer. I think he did okay, even with some of our lighting challenges!

    I think these vests have made us all converts! the loose look is ideal for spring and you look crisp and classic which sometimes is difficult to do when you are wearing looser clothing. BRAVO!!
