Leather Vest Layers

I don’t often shop at Forever 21, but I have been known to come across some seriously awesome pieces there. This faux leather vest was one of my recent favorite finds. At under $35, it is the perfect layering piece to add a little edge to an outfit.Fall faux leather vestA chambray top and jeans could be my weekend uniform, but a leather vest adds some Fall attitude to the look, making this preppy gal feel like she could hop on a motorcycle at any moment.

    I was looking for a leather vest a few weeks ago, but then I settled on a denim one instead! 😛 You look very cool in yours…and I’m kind of totally in love with that colorful wall as a photo backdrop! That’s such a fun location!

    Ok so you’ve got me really excited, because I have this faux leather vest I got from Walmart of all places a couple of years ago. It was from the Miley Cyrus collection. It was only $5 so I figured, hey why not. It looks FANTASTIC on you! You’ve inspired how I will wear mine now! Thank you!

    I’m trying to shop less and less at F21 as I get older because I’m trying to buy things with slightly better quality. However, it’s still my go-to for super trendy, fun pieces like your awesome vest! I love the edge you added to your look! It’s always fun to do that sometimes 🙂

    I love this look, especially that pretty necklace! I have a faux leather jacket from Forever 21 that I’ve worn over and over. I think I paid around 30 bucks so I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth!

    you look great! I love the edge this vest gives your outfit too. Forever 21 can be up/down with me, and sometimes I even feel guilty for shopping there. BUT, they do have some affordable and trendy pieces. =)

    I am SO jealous of all the leather-esque pieces people find at F21– I don’t know how I strike out every time I go in there lately! And from one preppy girl to another, you TOTALLY pull this off. Love it!!

    Love the necklace and vest! I have to say, I love to shop at Forever 21. But I used to work there, so I definitely learned how to shop in their space! Love the outfit!

    Great edgy look! I love F21 for cheap trendy pieces. Sometimes they do surprise me with their collection (surprise part can go either way 😉

    I’m so glad you posted this look!! I bought a vest similar to this from Target recently, but I’m having the hardest time styling it. I feel like I see cute vest outfits all the time yet I think it’s so tricky! I love this one, and I will definitely be taking some inspiration. Also, I love your background! So great!
