TREND: The Vest is Back

A vest is a tricky thing to pull off; they seem to be reserved for safaris or bird watchers. However, this Fashionista shows us that this is no longer the case: the vest is back.

This Fashionista's hunter green vest is slightly military-inspired, without the unflattering bulk normally associated with a vest. It cinches at the waist to create a feminine shape, while the cargo pockets add a rugged edge. By pairing it with a cozy sweater, this Fashionista looks like she is ready to take on the wilderness in style.

Whether you're really braving the woods or just the hallways (it can get pretty rough there, too), a vest is perfect attire. It adds slight warmth, which is great for the finicky temperature of BU classrooms. Vests are also a great layering tool; you can throw one on over a T-shirt, a sweater or even a tank top.

Recently, vests similar to this Fashionista's have been showcased on the runways of Diane von Furstenberg and Ralph Lauren. Both designers use vests in a classic Americana way, invoking images of a cozy fall day in the countryside. Although Boston might not be the countryside, it is the host of many quintessential fall days for which you will definitely need a vest!

Hint: Pair a military vest with a floral skirt for a super edgy look!
