This Unexpected Item Is A Hit For Summer Styling

Two fashionable celebs are totally redefining my entire idea of what a “summer accessory” is. Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez wore long line vests recently, and had me like, “Vests? For summer?” And after seeing their looks, I can say with full confidence: Yes. Yes indeed.

I’ve never really thought of these sleeveless coats as a summer wardrobe item. Fall or winter? Totally. But now, I’m realizing that they are great to pair with many of your summer looks, making them the new ultimate warm weather accessory. If you think about it, you can wear vests as bathing suit cover-ups, or style them with a dress, with shorts, with pants, or with sweatpants for a jet-set chic vibe. After hearing all of that, aren’t vests quickly becoming your favorite, too? Thought so!

There are all types of long line vests that can suit whatever style you’re rocking this summer. Going for a boho look? You can definitely do that with a fringe or lace vest, for example. Want a more put-together look? Go for something a little more structured. The list goes on and on!

See how Jenner and Gomez styled their looks, and then shop the vest that fits the feel you’re going for this summer.
