To wear a vest or not to wear a vest? That is the question that Real Simple editors answered in a recent article aptly titled “How To Vear a Vest.” The answer? To wear a vest, of course.

The magazine’s editors rounded up their picks for long vests, short vests, casual vests, dressy vests, and everything in between. Along the way, they offer up fit tips (long vests are “figure-forgiving”), style upgrades (mirror the length of a mid-length vest with a longer necklace), and suggest flattering tops and bottoms, cute accessories and comfortable shoes – including our Adelyn Ballet Flat – to complement any and all vests.

Our favorite looks? Pairing a long vest with tailored pants and comfortable ballet flats for a work-appropriate take on the trend. We also can’t resist this casual look. Jeans + vest + flats = the perfect spring weekend outfit.

It’s clear that the vest is once again having a “moment.” Thanks, Real Simple, for showing us fun, simple ways to style this must-have item for spring.
