America’s Most Stylish Blogger Competition; The Boyfriend Vest 5 Ways
Oct 27, 2009 | Fashion, Score! |
So my outfit including the Priorities Navy Gabardine Boyfriend Vest ($90, Bluefly.com) has already been posted to SyleList.com and Bluefly.com…please vote for me! (And be entered to win a $1000 Bluefly.com shopping spree!)
But, always being the overachiever, I decided to style this vest in a number of different outfits since it is incredibly versatile.
With The Boyfriend
Husband Jean. Methinks they’re a bit too
baggy, but what the hey.
(Old Navy tee, H&M belt, Newport-News patent clutch, Claire’s leather wristband, Lucky horseshoe pendant necklace worn as a bracelet, Hub’s Banana Republic jeans, Colin Stuart Sexy Stiletto pumps)
The precursor to the outfit I submitted for the competition. I decided the jeans had to be skinnier-cut in order for the outfit to work.
(QoJelly convertible chiffon top, Yukester necklaces, XOXO studded bag folded over, vintage wristwatches, Paris Blues jeans, Bakers Shoes shield sandals)
Channeling Cyndi Lauper.
(DIY ribbon-wrapped Claire’s plastic necklace, bandeau bra, vintage ruffled tutu, Newport-News high-waisted skirt, Spiral Girl platform pumps)
Military-style. Why is a vest categorized as “outerwear” when you wear it inside your coat/jacket? Wear it on top: outerwear over outerwear!
(Kenneth Cole trenchcoat and trenchcoat belt, skirt you can barely see so who cares, vintage thigh-high boots)
(faux leather jacket from Japan, handmade beaded necklace…DIY tutorial here….F21 ruffled top, Old Navy belt, thrift store pants I DIY’ed into cropped harems, Bakers Shoes shield sandals)
I certainly could have worn it over a coordinating slim skirt for office-appropriate attire, or open over a white tee and destroyed jeans. But that’s so expected!
How would you have styled the vest?

It's a cool mix of coll rock and glamour chick(especially with the vest)!!. I think I may have gone without the necklace with some headgear though..
I like #5 the best as it really showcases your DIY necklace.

I love that vest with the flowie or feminine blouses like in #2 and your DIY necklace looks like it was made for that ruffle shirt in #5
