violetheart 's Thoughts:

When I first read about the teen vogue wardrobe remix contest, I was so excited to enter it! Teen vogue is one of my absolute favorite magazines. The fashion that they show in their issues has definitely been a source of inspiration to me. I decided to remix my DIY jean vest. It was once a jean jacket, but I made it into a vest. I was bored with my jean jacket so I gave it a different look! I think that the jean vest is always super stylish and cool! Plus it can be worn in any season. I’m very versatile with my style and I don’t like to wear the same look everyday. If you’re like me, the jean vest is perfect for your wardrobe!
And any girl can pull it off :)

The 3 Looks:

The first look is more of a romantic one. I love my floral dress and the jean vest spiced it up! I also put my favorite boots with it, and a small messenger purse. The vest helps to toughen up a floral dress, and make the outfit stand out more! This would be great to wear on a picnic, summer barbeque, or date!

The second look is more casual. I put my favorite navy and white striped tee under the vest. I put my sailor anchor necklace with it, and my most comfortable camel sandals. I also paired it with short jean shorts for more of a summer look. This look is modern and chic. It could be worn anywhere!, daily life, hanging out with friends, or the movies!

The third look is a little more edgy than the others! Everyone has a basic white tee in their closet, and thats exactly what I paired the vest with. I also paired the vest with my chunky bracelet and bird charm necklace. I put black jeans and black flats with it to make the navy rinse of the vest pop. This could be worn to a concert , a party, or even window shopping at the mall!

My tips for remixing your jean vest are:
- Never underestimate the classic style of a basic tee (white, or striped)
- Don’t hesitate to pair romantic or frilly items with it( such as dresses, lace, ruffles, or floral prints)
- Pair major accessories with it! bracelets,necklaces,or earrings
-Wear your vest year round!
-And most importantly, stay confident and rock your jean vest your way! :)
everyone knows that confidence is the best accessory of all!

XOXO

How did you turn the jean jacket into a vest? Did you cut off the sleeves? How did you cover up the remaining fabric sticking out?
