When I first saw this sweater vest, it instantly reminded me of that 70's Show with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. I am not sure if I was more attracted to the gorgeous mustard yellow, the beautiful bejeweled neckline detail or the fact that it will be great piece through the fall and even into holiday dressing. But what I do know is that whenever you wear this decorative vest, you will most definitely be the centre of attention.
Since the top is so colourful and bright, I decided to counter the vibrancy with a long A-line denim skirt. This skirt pairs seamlessly with the top because it also has a 70's flair. If you have been reading my previous post, I have been really loving skirts with button details. Not only are they comfortable to wear but they are also flattering. The contrast of the two pieces creates a look that is sophisticated yet relaxed. You can wear this look to a casual party or even a fancier dinner depending on how you use your accessorires.
To keep the look casual and effortless, I kept with a neutral brown palette by adding a simple brown belt, a classic Louis Vuitton speedy bag and brown suede knee high boots. I didn't want any of my accessories to distract the gorgeous detail of the sweater vest. So therefore, I added just very delicate gold and jeweled ring, stud earrings and bracelets. I think it is important to remember that when you wear something that you want to be a focal point, you want the rest of your outfit to be neutral and simple.
Thanks so much for reading and I hope that you have enjoyed the 70's trend that I have been spotting lately.
