The Long Vest
January 26, 2015 | Location: Duluth, Georgia
The search for the perfect long vest has ended at last. Anna Claire and I have been looking for a long vest to feature on AOS since early fall. I finally found this one at Zara about a month ago. Unfortunately, my vest has already sold out; it really is THAT great. However, a lot of retailers seem to be catching onto our favorite trend. I've found quite a few others that I love and I'll provide the links to shop at the end of this post.
What makes the long vest so desirable, you ask? The vest has been around for ages, but at this length it creates a refreshing, unexpected silhouette. It is the new staple layering piece of the season. Despite it being very on-trend right now, we plan to keep the long vest in our closets for many seasons to come. I am focusing on adding classic items to my wardrobe so it made sense for me to purchase a black vest, but there are so many great colored options available as well. I decided to pair it with a comfy, striped sweater and my go-to winter hat.
Anna Claire and I are so happy to be back on track after a busy week. Anna Claire was traveling cross-country to her new home in California and I was up to my neck in wedding planning (highlights of both will be on the blog soon!). Although we are disappointed to be separated, we are excited about the different perspective that the change will add to Art of Style. Thank you for following along with us on this ever-changing journey!
