How to Wear a Leather Vest from Day to Night

Leather is a huge trend for Fall 2018. But the thought of wearing leather right now when it’s still so hot is unbearable. That’s why a leather vest is a great transitional piece. I just got this leather trim vest and love how it easily goes from day to night… and from summer into fall. See how to wear a leather vest.

For day, I layered it over a basic white tee and skinny jeans (on major sale!). Right now, I’m wearing silver sandals (40% off). But I could do the same look with booties when the weather permits. I can also swap the tee for a sweater.

For night, I made the vest on top by belting it and adding a little double stick tape. I tried this trick earlier this year with a blazer and loved it so much! The secret to doing this is making sure the vest or jacket is a little oversize and going for a thicker belt to keep everything in place.

Which look do you like better?

    I’m loving how you transitioned this beautiful vest from day to night! I’m wondering how this would look on a curvy girl, like myself! I will just have to go to Macy’s and try on this vest myself and see 🙂 Thank you again for all the style tips – such great ideas!
