    Girly grunge

    Military vests can be a little too tomboy for some people, so feel free to doll it up with a skirt or dress. In hot weather, a floaty, white dress and pretty jewelry makes this vest look sweet and summery. Highlight the vest’s fall feel later in the school year with a chunky sweater and a cool patterned skirt that hits below the knee.

    Patterned punk

    Leather vests are super edgy, but that doesn’t mean the rest of your outfit has to be. Mix a retro biker chick look with some modern flair by taking a polka dotted pattern and sticking it with a trendy romper. If ya need to cover up more, flannel and leather are a classic combo—make it unique by pairing them with a cute maxi skirt and some wedges.
