Happy Tuesday!. There are times when the weather stands in our way to look on point with high heels and elegant outfits. Forcing us to reach out to layers that are relaxed and comfortable. However, picking a layer doesn’t mean we can give up on style or trend. In fact, some layers give a powerful embellished addition to the look. So if you are looking to renew your outer layer with a new trendy capsule, then look no further than getting an olive green utility vest. Today, I will be giving ideas on how you can style your olive green utility vest in winter.

Olive Green utility vest

An olive green utility vest is a trend that is not new. Each year it keeps in updating with new details, shapes or styles. That’s why I love this trend. It is one of the pieces once you invest in one, you will be able to wear it without looking like it is an old trend or fashion. Plus, it is versatile and functional that you will be able to wear it each time the weather changes.

How to style your utility vest

Before the holiday starts, I went shopping for winter vest/coat finds at Marshalls with my husband. While we were there, my husband picked up the olive green utility vest I am styling today. I love his finds and the fact that it has the perfect length for my petite me. To complete the utility design, the vest has functional pockets with a hood lined in fur. It also has drawstrings cinch the waist to define the waist.

If you are looking for an exact option, I suggest checking nearby marshalls. I believe it is on sale. Otherwise, I have picked a few of my favorite utility vest below the post for your reference. But for now, Let’s talk about how you can style your vest.

With bright jeans

Whether you love to wear bright pair of jeans in winter or not, olive green utility vest looks edgy with bright colors jeans. I paired my utility vest with my favorite pair of gold metallic jeans. These particular jeans, I styled it previously with oversized sweater. It was nice to be able to style it again. This exact option is out of stock, But I spotted a similar pair in here. So, if you have gold, white, even light wash of denim jeans, I suggest to pair it with your vest. The outcome will give a statment to your overall outfit.

Over winter dress

If you have a long sleeve sweater dress, Then layering a utility vest will give an embellished look to your outfit. Think of one color dress with no print. Or pull it a nudge with a striped dress. The outcome is an effortlessly chic even work worthy outfit. Pair it with over the knee boots for an extra edgy look.

Add a complimentary sweater color

Since it is winter, our sweater option is limited but that doesn’t mean you can only stick to your grays or blacks. In order to let the utility vest pop more. Wear fierce colors such as pink. Especially that this year is the year of pink and its shade. It also plays well with striped. Therefore, If you have a striped sweater, enjoy it with your utility vest. Or tone it down with natural colors such as beige and nudes such as I did. I got this heather oatmeal sweater from Macy’s. It is so versatile and can go with everything. Plus, it is soft and washes out well.

Be minimal with jewelry

Since the utility vest looks like military vest with functional pocket then having a full set of jewelry may look off with this outfit. Also, winter requires minimal jewelry anyway since the focal point is on your outerwear and winter accessories. Therefore, I styled it with set of bangles and green earrings and flower ring my mom gave me a few years ago. I recommend to go minimal with accessories as I did.

wear it with boots

Unless you live in moderate weather, Then I suggest to throw on a pair of boots. The style and the color of boots depending on your preference. However, I suggest to leave a bold yellow, red or blue to another outfit and stick to earth tone colors even pair of black boots would work.

I decide to go with brown ankle boots I got a few years ago from DSW. My favorite shoe store where they have a variety of brands from high ends to low with so many styles for every taste. In fact, I thought with so many statement pieces,  The earth-toned boots with a light buckle and moderate heels complement the look. This is the first time I wear these boots this winter. Thus, I was happy to take them off the shelf and wear them again. I love when I style a timeless piece like my brown boots.

Finally, I am in love with this utility vest. It keeps me warm and stylish in winter. It is also a perfect transition piece in spring. Here are my ideas on how you can style your utility vest while looking stylish and fashion forward.
