Let me be the first to say that this look ain't for everybody. But let me quickly remind you that showing your midriff is NOT a requirement - it's just what happened here today. I was getting dressed today when a voice inside myself said

"SELF... what about wearing a vest as a shirt? It's such an underrated piece in layering to begin with and it just about never (outside of being a trend in the 90's) is given the proper time to shine"

So I listened to that inner voice and gave the only vest I own, it's moment in the sunlight. 

Full look: 

Nothing deep happening here. It's a vest with charcoal boyfriend jeans. 

I'm thinking a vest with interesting design elements is a must. This one, has an inner and outer layered design. I was able to snap shut the inner piece and let the outer hang for "style".  Could have buttoned it all up. BORING!

Oh, hi girl. 

Since the vest is the pulled together piece, I went with baggy boyfriend jeans to bring some edge. If I chose skinny jeans, it would have been too much "sexy" 

Kept it sporty from the waist to the toe with these NIke Lunarlon kicks. Why the neon? Why not a black shoe? That's a bigger conversation developing in my head about the cycles of personal style. 

Have any of you tried the vest as shirt look? Tell me, tell me!
