THERE’S EVEN MORE THAN 4
UPDATE YOUR WARDROBE WITH A VEST
Stylist Tip- If you are larger on top choose a darker color and a v neck style. Wear it solo to avoid extra bulk. If you want to layer, make sure your vest is fitted and try it over a white button up. Keep the neckline open and avoid looking boxy.
PREPPY CARDIGAN SET
Even better get an updated cardigan set and style the pieces together or separate. The knit tank will do double duty as a vest over your button. The cropped cardigan can stand alone over your slip dress.
80’s ATHLETIC INSPIRED TREND | TRACK PANTS
80’s inspired everything is back and better than before. All American sportswear brands like Nike, Adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Gap provide the perfect pieces for outfit inspiration. Pick up a preppy polo and rework that track suit. For more outfit inspiration check out my post TRACK PANT OUTFITS.
