Ask Alison | Style My Fleece Vest

I got the following e-mail through the Get Your Pretty On Facebook page yesterday from one of my best friends from high school.

Alison – First, let me say. I love this blog!  Keep it up, I look forward to reading your posts.  I need some fashion advice. I bought a cream/off white fleece vest at Land’s End.  What would you suggest pairing with it?  Take care, Amy

Aww, Amy, thanks for the blog love!  And you don’t have to ask me twice.  I’d love to show you a few different ways to pair it up.  A fleece vest in a neutral color is a great outfit builder!

Fleece Vest - Three Ways

Look 1Color it up!  Pair it up with some colored denim, a striped top and a colorful scarf with ankle boots.  Add a splash of bright color to any dreary winter day with this fun look.

Look 2Dress it up!  Try it over a sweater dress with patterned tights and riding boots.  The sweater dress and tights make the fleece vest office appropriate.

Look 3Layer it up!  Use the fleece vest as your final layer over a plaid shirt and cableknit sweater.  Pair with laid back jeans and lace-up booties for an outdoorsy vibe.

It’s Your Turn:  Do you have a piece of clothing or accessory that you’d like me to pair up?  Submit your question HERE and it could be answered in the next “Ask Alison”!
