I haven’t owned a vest in years, even though the vest-and-striped-shirt combo is one of my favorites. I’ve seen cute vests on social media throughout the whole winter season, and I decided it was time I get one and create this look before spring officially comes.
Both the shirt and vest are from Old Navy. The shirt is the women’s Luxe Long-Sleeve Hi-Lo Hem Striped Tee. It is incredibly soft. It does seem to run a bit large, though – I ordered a small and worried it would be too small, but it fits more like a medium. I’d recommend choosing one size down from what you’d usually wear.
The vest is the Lightweight Diamond-Quilted Zip-Front Vest in olive green. I’m naturally drawn to olive green – it’s an easy color that pairs well with other neutrals, but it’s still bold enough to make a statement.
I love this vest because it’s not bulky, but still warm enough for those chilly early-spring days. It doesn’t look out of place to wear indoors, which is good for me, since I work in an office. As far as sizing goes, I ordered a small and it fits perfectly. I personally don’t like oversized vests, but if you do, you may want to size up.
In addition to the olive color, it’s available in ivory, pink, mustard, navy, and black. Which color would you choose?
