How To Wear: Olive Green Military Vest

So I don’t think it’s a surprise at all when I put it out there and say that I love fashion. I love clothes, I love wearing them different ways and styling them! I’ve been sharing my different outfits and looks on Instagram for a while now, but I thought it would be fun to bring some styling fun to the blog every once and a while!

I have a long list of some of my favorite “basics” and I want to work on sharing different ways I wear and style them! How does that sound to you? And if you have any requests, feel free to send them my way and I’ll be sure to work on some styling tips for you! how-two-wear

First up is this Olive Green Military Vest – or Utility vest, not sure 100% what is the right way to call it, but all I know is that I wear mine ALL.THE.TIME. It’s such an easy piece to throw on pretty much everything, and I love how it can really change up a look. Plus, adding a bit of a waist {and pockets!} when you might otherwise not have one, along with some added bum coverage {especially when you are wearing leggings} is always a good thing in my opinion!

Here are three different ways I’ve worn my green vest in the past few weeks – with a dress, with jeans and with leggings:dress

vest {similar} / dress / necklace / shoes 

First up is with a dress – I think this is my most unexpected pairing as it was something I wasn’t planning on doing but thought it would be fun to just try out. I think the green in the vest and the military vibe to it, really brings down dressiness of the dress and makes it was more casual, yet put together.

I love the utility look paired with the aztec dress and some boho jewels – one might think it’s a little all over the place when you say it like that, but I think it totally works! I think the green vest is a totally surprising neutral that goes with so many things !


Another unexpected pairing is the vest with some really fun printed leggings. Again, the print on these leggings are all over the place, but I think the neutral black top + boots, paired with the muted vest bring it all together and calms it down a bit.


Worn with my customized Onecklace – I really enjoyed this comfortable look!

And how amazing is this personalized piece? I love the #BrooksandGraham hashtag – it’s a really fun piece to wear and it’s just so special to me – love my boys!


And back to the green vest! Finally I thought it would be fun to use the neutral green to go along with a fun plaid – the effortless green in the vest makes the blue really pop! If I do say so myself!

Seriously, if you need me this season, I will probably be wearing THIS!


Here are some of my favorite olive green military vest out there at the moment – some are even on sale! If you don’t have one of these, I would defiantly recommend adding one to your wardrobe as I really think they can be worn SO MANY different ways and really change up a look!

    Wow – you really should have gone into fashion designing in college – certainly is your passion! It’s never too late either! Love the versatility of the green vest, I would never have thought to pair it like you did. I didn’t know there were so many utility vests out there either – I need to get me one! Happy Styling!
