Our Ebony Vest From The Office To Cocktails

Our Ebony Vest From The Office To Cocktails

I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend. We had a low-key holiday, relaxing at home and meeting up with some friends for dinner. Sometimes all you need is a bit of down time at home to feel energized and refreshed to take on a new week.

Over the last few weeks I have shown you our new Solstice and Ivory vests and how I would style them. Today I am showing you the last one of my vest styling series, the Ebony vest. Since I styled both the Solstice and Ivory vests with a sleeveless top underneath, I really wanted to layer the Ebony vest with a top that has sleeves. I know there are some women who do not like showing their arms, so I wanted to show how versatile vests can be to wear with sleeveless or sleeved tops underneath.

Vests are a great alternative piece to replace your jacket with especially during warmer summer months. So I was thinking about how to style the Ebony vest for this week’s post, I thought of times when I was working in an office until five or six o’clock and then had to run out to a cocktail party or dinner right after but didn’t have time to go home and change. So I decided to show you how easy it can be to transform your work outfit into a cocktail party outfit with just a few changes.

I started by putting together my outfit that would be appropriate for the office. Our Ebony vest combined with wide leg trousers and a graphic top with ¾ sleeves, black sandals and my black bag. In order to change from this look into a cocktail party look, all I needed was to show a bit more skin, add jewelry and change my black bag to a clutch. I wore a lacy camisole under the top so it would be easier to just take off the top and wear the Ebony vest over the camisole.

I took one of our new beautiful antique inspired statement necklaces and a gold clutch and left them in the car to use later. At the end of the day, all I had to do was to take off my long sleeve top, add the necklace and change my bag and voila I was ready for cocktails. By the way this formula would work with any kind of bottom or a jacket instead of a vest as well.

Our Ebony vest is available here and the statement necklace here.

What do you think of my office to cocktails look?
