Putting your favorite summer pieces into storage is one of the bad things about the changing season. You feel like you have to switch out your whole wardrobe. However, this isn’t always the case. Some staples, like a denim vest, can easily be switched over to winterwear. If you’re interested in keeping your denim vest around all year long, here are a few ideas for wearing it this winter:

Don a dress

A denim vest is the perfect piece to wear with long dresses for women. The extra layer will keep you warm through the cold months while still looking fashionable. You can wear a dress in nearly any print or color, and the basic denim jacket will help tone down a bright pattern. You should also try to find a dress that has long sleeves. The added length will elongate your arms and give them protection from the elements.

Pair it with a button-down

Button-downs are always flattering and comfortable. Make this piece really stand out by pairing it with a denim vest. Leave the vest unbuttoned so you can see the shirt underneath really well. This look is great for work or hanging out with friends.

To make this style even more casual, try using a plaid shirt. The patterned piece will stand out against the denim and give your outfit a fashionable look. Complete this ensemble by donning white skinny jeans or a maxi skirt.

You don’t want to wear normal blue jeans on the bottom because your outfit would have too much denim. Keep this in mind when you’re creating your denim vest ensemble.

Add a sweater

Since the weather is cold, wearing a sweater is always a good choice – it’ll keep you warm and cozy throughout the day. You can easily place a jean jacket on top of this sweater too. The contrasting textures will make your outfit visually interesting while giving you plenty of layers to stay warm.

Make sure the sweater you choose isn’t too bulky when putting this outfit together. You don’t want the vest to be stretched over the layer underneath. Instead, choose a wool sweater that’s a little more formfitting. This will allow the vest to rest on top without making the outfit appear oversized.

Accessorize your outfit

Denim vests go really well with any accessories. For instance, spice up your appearance with a statement necklace. Wear the necklace with a blouse and vest to give the look a real pop of color. If you’re interested in something a little warmer for the season, then make sure you grab a scarf. This accessory is perfect for the fall and winter seasons because it adds style to any outfit while also keeping your neck warm. Infinity scarves pair best with a denim vest because they won’t hang down and cover up your fashion jacket.
