This is kind of a 70s glam rock meets 90s club kid look and I'm really digging the combination! I rarely put together an outfit without any prints. I actually didn't realize I'd done that until I was editing the photos. So here you go - an inadvertent study in colorblocking!

I found this crushed velvet dress for the shop a while back and for some reason no one has snapped it up yet. It's such a perfect 90s mini! The fuzzy yellow coat was a Christmas gift from Matt. While we were in Stockholm last November, we'd pass a store every day that had it displayed in the window. I fell in love with it, but never went in to try it on. Fast forward to Christmas and I found out that Matt tracked it down online and bought it for me!

Styling Tips

How to Style a Vintage Denim Vest for Every Season

Vests are a super easy way to add extra interest to an outfit, and denim vests are especially versatile. Here's how I'd wear this vintage vest from the 70s (available here in the shop) for every season. A combination of vintage and modern pieces were used in these outfits...just goes to show that styling vintage doesn't have to be complicated. Just use what you already have in your closet!

A flannel shirt and jeans are a staple during the cold months. Throw on a denim vest and combat boots to really kick winter's ass!

There's still a little chill in the air, but you're ready to shed your winter gear and bring out the bright colors! Layer up with a long sleeve blouse under a sleeveless jumpsuit so all you have to add is your vest and some cute open toe wedges.

The last thing you want to think about in the heat is layers, but I swear a vest is the best way to add interest to a summer outfit without sweating to death! Throw it on over your favorite floral dress, add a hat and sandals, and you're done.

There's something about fall that makes me gravitate toward earthy brown tones. Indulge in a little print mixing by pairing plaid shorts with a printed scarf. Just add a graphic t-shirt, tall boots, and your vest. All set!

So that's what I would do! What about you? How would you style it?
