How to Style a Denim Vest
I’m all about the mom style infusing comfy with trends. I love the versatility of a simple denim vest.
Start with a simple bottom and plain top. A black maxi skirt or leggings are shown with a plain white t shirt or a striped t. All playground friendly wear that you can move in and chase after the kids or swing on the playset. I think that is important as a mom, to be able to be active with your children. I am not one of those moms that takes the kids to the park and sits on a bench. I am right in there going down slides and being involved so my clothes have to accommodate this.
When you have simple clothing pieces on, think of accessories as being the star of the outfit and what brings everything together. You don’t want to look like you rolled out of bed and threw on some leggings and a t shirt. Although, my hair today surely says that. Accessories will help taking a blah outfit and turn into a trendy look.
For my leggings look, I have on Stella & Dot once again. The Sutton Necklace in silver is a great statement piece for almost any outfit.
Now, for the shoes. before children, I wore a lot of high heels and chose style over comfort. There is no running around in heels however, so look for shoes that are versatile. I live in Tom’s and Keds these days. Ballet flats are always a good choice too.
My mini has on black leggings, Carters denim vest, Carters pink shoes and a Hello kitty t shirt. How cute is this denim vest she has on? This is last years style from Carter’s but found this Children’s Place vest that is pretty cute here.
Moms wear a whole lot of leggings. How do you find a pair that is right for you? I like my leggings to have a little bit of structure with a thicker fabric so no imperfections show through. Loft has some of my favorite leggings during the fall and winter and I try to stock up for the year when they go on sale. Always, always, always cover your butt when wearing leggings. Make sure your top is long enough to drape over your hips and cover the bum. I repeat, cover your bum. I love wearing my leggings as much as the next mom but they are not pants so don’t style them like they are.
I picked this denim vest up at Kohl’s for around $25. There are so many options for denim vests in all price ranges. Some are really torn, some light, dark, cropped, long. Pick one that goes with your style and with items you already own. I recommend purchasing one that is simple and fits snuggly around your curves.
How will you style your denim vest as an on-the-go mommy?
