Wear Now, Wear Later: Black Sleeveless Vest


When you use a capsule wardrobe, you get used to making the most out of the closet.  You streamline your wardrobe by choosing clothes that will make the most outfits and you enjoy wearing them.  Before long your closet really works efficiently and you save money since you no longer have the need to buy clothes nearly as often!

As Fall approaches, we start to think about what we want in our Fall capsule wardrobes.  It’s always fun to wear layers in the Fall, as they not only keep you warm, but they also add interest to your outfits.  Some great layers to wear in the Fall are cardigans and jackets, but a chic piece to wear is a Black Sleeveless Vest!

While browsing on Nordstrom yesterday, I found this “Belted Sleeveless Jacket” that comes in black and olive and ranges in sizes XXS to XXL.  It reminds me of a utility jacket, but dressier!  It’s a bit longer too, coming to mid-thigh.  This 3rd piece layer would be great to wear now with this white sleeveless ruffle tee, these raw hem jeans and these block heel sandals.  It will also be great to wear in the Fall with this favorite roll tab ivory top (comes in several other colors too!), olive jeans and these hardware accented black ankle boots.  If you are looking for a budget-friendly style, this black hacci vest (plus-size version) is only $29!

This belted sleeveless jacket would fit in perfectly in any of the Fall 2018 Capsule Wardrobe eBooks: Essential, French Minimalist or Workwear, currently available in the Capsule Wardrobe eBook StoreOver 15,000 capsule wardrobe eBooks have been sold and many women rely on them to know what to wear and look fabulous everyday!

  1. I really like the vest and the way you have it styled. However, the plus-size version you linked to isn’t anything like the vest featured in the article. It’s just an open sweater vest. I really appreciate that you’ve started to include links to plus sized options. However, the links aren’t as useful as they might be if they show something so different. It would really be great if the plus-sized options were more like the “regular” size version.
