How to Dress Up a Utility Vest

By Friday, August 4, 2017 8

Happy Friday! Baby girl has really begun making an obvious appearance in the last few weeks and I’m like ‘whoa’ when I see these photos! She’s been kicking more and more every day and I’m so excited because we get to see her up close on our first 4D Ultrasound tomorrow! I’ve been relying on easy layers to dress this growing bump, and lately I’ve been all about utility vests. A classic summer-to-fall staple, a utility vest provides the perfect outer layer during warm weather months. Most of the time I wear mine casually, but sometimes it can be fun to dress them up. For this post, I’ll be sharing some easy ways to take yours to the next level for date night and beyond.

Ways to Dress Up a Utility Vest

  • Layer one over a dress
  • Zip it up and tie a thin or thick belt at the waistline
  • Wear one with a silky blouse and wide leg pants
  • Try pairing with a camisole/pencil skirt combo
  • Throw it over a jumpsuit (shown here)
  • If you wear jeans, add high heels and a statement bag
    Don’t forget that there are only a few days remaining to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale—prices go up Monday. August 7th! Shop the best last-minutes picks on this post.

    I especially loved vests during my pregnancy too. You make this look so chic! I wouldn’t have thought to put a belt UNDER the vest, but I love it.

    That’s one lovely shade of green you have there for your vest. Also, your sandals look so fab!
