Denim Vest for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a Skirt
Quote of the day: “It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.”
Wearing your denim vest with a skirt isn’t much different than our last post where we wore it with a dress (here). But it’s that yin and yang of styling that I seem to gravitate towards lately—a casual item, aka the vest, with a dressier item, aka the skirt. I didn’t realize that I pulled out print skirts for all three of us in this post—but you certainly could wear it with a solid colored skirt too. We also got creative by putting our vest over a jacket in the first post of the series (here). How else do you wear your denim vest? Tell me below in the comments!
50’s Outfit: I think denim and leopard play well together. Then, of course, my first reaction is to combine the leopard with red—I’ll have to try other colors next time.

60’s Outfit: Here’s one of the skirts made by my cousin’s company in Boulder called, Oh My Bag. They have unstructured totes, girl’s gauchos & skirts—the pockets are a good example how print mixing can be done!!
70’s Outfit: My mom’s reaction to this outfit was that it was “confused”. Pairing a wool skirt, a lace embroidered tee and a denim vest just doesn’t make sense to her—she did agree after seeing it on her body that it looked okay though. It’s been fun ever since….I describe the style as dichotomy, and she calls it confused!!
It warms my heart to know others are reading this!
