We experienced our first of the chilly temps in Brisbane late last week, and I for one couldn’t be more excited! To celebrate, I’m bringing out the layers, starting with the must have item of the season: a Caramel Vest. Worn oh so casually with a pair of boyfriend jeans, or effortlessly thrown over a tunic, I’m ready to reveal my little tips and tricks to styling this staple, featuring new season Seduce.

1. Nothing contrasts against this colour, like a clean black canvas. Such a rich, pigmented colour should only be emphasised by a strong base colour – that’s why I turn to classic black.

2. Booties are always a great choice. No Autumn outfit is complete without a cheeky pair of ankle boots, so keep a peeper out for a versatile pair, like these black, block heeled babies.

3. Ties are optional. What I love about this particular vest is the optional tie, which completely changes the look of this piece. Wear open for a relaxed, casual vibe, or create a loose bow for a more polished, refined look.

4. Explore length. A 3/4 vest is a great way to explore different lengths, and emphasis clean lines. I find a shorter hemline helps to create the look of longer pins, which is a definite advantage for this 5 ft 2 fashionista.

I would love to hear how you would style this little number in the comments below! I’de also love for you to subscribe (via the menu) to my fortnightly style guide, for little tips and tricks, industry trends and sneaky previews to future posts! You know you want to…
