Sometimes you can throw on one luxe piece that makes the outfit. That’s how I feel about this Tuxedo vest by Madewell. I bought it last year (similar style available) and it’s become a fabulous piece for casual or glamorous style.

The Margot necklace by Kendra Scott amps up the look giving it a rocker chic vibe. To prove its mettle, while I was taking these photographs, a guy on a motorcycle actually turned around and came up to me to hit on me. There’s a first time for everything! He must have dug the edginess of this look. I could picture myself hopping on his bike and riding away into the sunset. Unfortunately, I was more deer in headlights when he asked me what I was taking photos for and he rode away. Perhaps the hog life is not for me.

Initially I was going to pair the vest with a graphic tee or black and white striped knit top. But I could not resist a pop of color. Yellow happens to be my favorite bright hue – it just radiates happiness. It’s also a fabulous canvas for the gold and gunmetal chain necklace. Plus pairing black and yellow is a great way to transition your style from summer to fall. Shop this look (or similar styles) in the blog shop!
