A New Take on Preppy

I recently wrote about this vest in my The Haul: Winter Break post. I normally don’t wear many vests, because they’re usually a bit too preppy to integrate into my wardrobe. When I found this one thrifting, I loved the black, white, and gold tweed with chunky gold hardware. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to style something new, especially in my favorite color combination. I’ve styled this vest in two ways (second to be posted next week), but I love how this unconventional pairing completely changes the vibe of the vest. I went for a more sleek, city vibe by adding the dark skinnies, leather boots, and graphic NYC sweater. To bring out the gold detailing in the vest, I accessorized with a statement necklace, earrings, and bracelets.
