The military jacket has been a wardrobe staple for the last few years. With vests making a big come back this year, it only makes sense to see the ‘military’ or utility vest pop up as a big trend this Fall. Vests are a great way to layer and add style to almost any outfit this season. Utility or cargo vests are an easy neutral color and can really go with anything.
Always the DIYer, I decided to make my own utility vest and save money for other wardrobe essentials. You can do the same by following this easy tutorial.
Now once you have your very own vest, how to do wear it? I’m ready to help you out with three easy options.
1. Utility Vest + Chambray Shirt + Boots
It doesn’t get more basic than this. Combine all of your wardrobe essentials into one perfect outfit. You can button the chambray shirt or leave it open. I like to roll the sleeves and leave the collar of the chambray shirt under the collar of the vest- don’t pop them both. Feel free to try another colored jean like oxblood or mustard. Also try changing up the boot with a black riding boot or even an ankle boot.
2. Utility Vest + Camo
Yes, this is taking the military theme to an extreme, but camo is huge this Fall and I don’t mind pairing the utility vest with one piece of camouflage This camo tee works well, but you could try some camo pants, ballet flats, or maybe even leggings.
4. Utility Vest + Basic Tee + Printed Pants
See how easy that was? You can wear a utility vest in so many ways- it is just a new neutral piece that you can throw on with all of your old staples. Be sure to hop over and follow me at ONE little MOMMA for other Fall style ideas!
