One of the coolest things about fashion is that old trends are constantly being resurrected and transformed into chic, modern styles. Think about it: nearly everything comes back into style at some point in the fashion life cycle. I mean, did we really ever think we’d see jelly shoes in style again?
A similar craze is happening with denim right now. Though denim jeans have proved to be a steadfast staple in our wardrobes, the spring 2013 runways brought back fond memories of the ‘90s trademark “all denim everything.” Everything from acid-wash jeans to denim overalls are having a moment right now, including the denim vest.
While it may be a fairly simple piece, the denim vest’s versatility sets off the overall mood of a look. It can appear edgy and cool when worn with a leather skirt and gold accents. But when paired with a tank and denim jeans, the vest takes on an all-American, classic style.
I love how this Fashionista brings back this classic ‘90s favorite in a hip style. Her sheer black maxi skirt gives off a carefree vibe and contrasts fabulously with the hardness of the denim. She layers an on-trend floral crop top underneath to add a splash of color to her look and shows just a hint of midriff.
With just the right amount of antique-inspired jewelry, this Fashionista’s denim adopts an adorable bohemian style that’s perfect for a summer date night. If you haven’t already jumped on the reemerging denim trend, make a versatile denim vest like this Fashionista’s
