I should start a series titled “clothing items my boyfriend hates.” Imagine all the OOTD possibilities.

The first clothing item featured would be this oversized cardigan, followed closely by this here vest, which my boyfriend calls the “skin vest.” Sometimes I take his fashion advice to heart, but with these specific pieces of fabric, I laugh in his face as I get dressed.

I recently purchased this vest at TJMaxx, and I can’t stop looking for ways to style it. Right now my favorite is with a long sleeve tee (black here, but I’ve also styled with a white shirt) and jeans. I’m not sure how it will work out, but I’m also considering trying it out over a dress or shirt and blouse.

Tell me:ย How would you style this vest?

    Very pretty vest. I love the double layers. I ignore my significant other, too, when it comes to my fashion choices.

      I normally consider his input – he has a good eye for style – but other times I just completely ignore him ๐Ÿ˜‰
