A Vested Interest

When your plate is full and you’re constantly on the go, there’s nothing more frustrating than the age-old problem of nothing to wear.

That’s why we love on-the-go pieces that you can throw on and run out the door. But when the summer temperatures keep rising, it can be hard to give that simple shift dress an extra edge. We’ve found the perfect solution: vests! Keep those jackets in storage a little while longer and step out with your new favorite look.

We love this chic structured vest (on sale for $99.99, from Madewell) for a work-appropriate look. Pair it with a nice T-shirt and these stylish yet comfy slouchy pants we’ve been raving about.

If you’re meeting the gals for a lunch date, give a casual jeans and tee look a little extra flair with this luxe black vest ($228, from Alysa Rene) with the right amount of flow. Add a hat for an extra touch and you’re ready to go.

You can’t ever go wrong with a little jean vest (on sale for $90, from Standard Style). Wear it over a floral dress with some booties for a perfect summer weekend look.
