Long fringed vest styled two ways

Earthy brown dress worn with long fringed vest and mustard tights

This long fringed vest is one of my recent "trendy" purchases and I bought it having in mind particularly this earthy brown dress. I have owned the dress for some time and started to get a little bored to wear it on its own. What I wanted was a new piece of clothing that could be added to it to create a different look. And when I saw the vest I knew that was it. It is made of soft velvety fabric that looks and feels like suede. I like the ornamental detail in a contrasting colour too.

My chunky shoes are in same colour as the vest but the tights I chose to wear with the look are in mustard yellow, which is complementing both to the earthy brown and dark olive green and at the same time creates a nice contrast with the bluish detail on the vest. The only accessory I'm wearing here is metallic fish necklace

But of course, most often this kind of vest is paired not with a dress but with pants. And here is my second look, more predictable but at the same time more colourful. I wore the vest over an orange top and rusty orange skinnies. The shoes are same but there are more accessories.

I really like both looks

  1. WOW!! I really like both looks too, Olga! I bought a black faux suede vest in Berlin which seems to be the same fabric as yours ...

  2. Fish necklaces both time! I love it :) So gorgeous in both outfits. I like the vivid color of #2 but those mustard tights make me pick #1 as the winner. I hope you will be kind enough to show them again, perhaps with a very short dress and shoeless. That would be ideal ;) The vest itself is a lovely piece and I can see you using it for many great looks! Happy Monday dear

  3. I love both of your outfits...and both of your fish neclaces.I think you styled both of these outfits brilliantly! You look divine dear Olga.

    That first dress I really like and it is a great pairing with this dress. Your colourful tights are a great pop of colour and the metallic fish necklace is amazing. Such a feminine and beautiful outfit!

    The second outfit is also fantastic. You know I love red! Great pants...and that vest is wonderfully paired with the red jumper and pants. You remind me of a Native Indian here.

  5. Love both outfits, especially the tights and shoes. Your nail polish is one of my favourite colours as well. I'm just experimenting wearing skinnies as I've got big feet and skinny legs and if I am not careful can look like i've got club feet haha x

  9. That is such a cool vest. It's unique & can stand alone but it still can be paired with a multitude of things. Great outfit. :]

  11. You always have such gorgeous jewellery. That ring is amazing with its inlay.
    I like both outfits, but perhaps the first a touch more because it is less predictable. Loving those boots!
    Once more you nailed it my dear. Xo Jazzy Jack

  12. They are both very nice! And I think you have chosen the most beautiful nail polish and lipstick to match to the outfits... an orange red which is great!
    My favourite necklace is the red one with the fish:sooooo cute!
