20 Style Tips On How To Wear A Fringe Vest Outside Of A Music Festival

Coachella is kicking off music festival season this weekend, and that means one big thing: festival fashion is back, for the next few months at least. This means you should prepare to see a lot of crop tops, bikini tops, high-waist shorts, suede everything, and fringe everywhere. This casual boho vibe looks on-point when you’re lounging in a field of flowers listening to a band play soothing tunes, but anywhere else? It can end up looking like a Halloween costume if it’s not done right. One festival favorite is a fringe vest, which is a definite Look.

Styled the right way, fringe vests can look cute, breezy, and perfectly bohemian. Styled in the… well, I don’t want to say wrong, because it’s not wrong if you like it… let’s go for “styled in the music festival way,” fringe vests can make you look like you’re headed to a costume party dressed up as a hippie from the ’70s. If that’s the look you’re going for, well done! If you’re looking for something a little more understated and subtle, there are ways to do that too. Here are 20 style tips on how to wear a fringe vest outside of a music festival:

1. Pair a fringe vest over a loose, solid-colored dress. This is a super easy and versatile outfit base – add a floppy hat and ankle boots, or if it’s warmer out, go for sandals or wedges.

2. Pair your fringe vest with a simple tank and skinny jeans. A pair of pumps or pointy-toe heels keep the look polished rather than very casual.

3. Keep your plain maxi dress looking fresh with a loose fringe vest. Add a floppy hat and flat sandals to complete the look.

4. Give no effs and go full-on Coachella by wearing a fringe vest over a bralette and high-waist shorts.

5. If you’re not afraid to wear something bold, pair your fringe vest with a bright patterned dress and long necklace.

6. A simple fringe vest can quickly update a classic look, like a striped shirt and black jeans.

7. If it’s still chilly out (like it is in New York), wear your fringe vest with over-the-knee boots and a chambray shirt.

8. Or stay warm by layering it over a cozy sweater and jeans.

9. If you want to go all-out, wear your fringe vest over a tank and shorts with cowboy boots and a floppy hat. There is nothing subtle about this look, but it’s really fun regardless.

10. If that look was a little too much for you, try this one: denim shorts, a simple top, cute sandals, and stylish accessories like a bright clutch and glamorous hat.

11. Don’t put too much thought into it! A fringe vest looks just as good dressed down with a graphic tee, comfy jeans, and sneakers.

12. Embrace that ’70s vibe and wear your fringe vest with flare jeans and a white top.

13. Take a simple outfit – a plain shirt, jeans, and ankle boots – and make it instantly more fun with the addition of a fringe vest.

14. A fringe vest looks unexpectedly cool with preppy basics, like heeled Oxford shoes.

15. Use a brown fringe vest to break up your favorite all-black ensemble.

16. This look is so comfortable you’ll want to wear it every day: loose, wide leg pants with a plain tank and a cute fringe vest. Add wedges to keep yourself looking put together.

17. Do something different and belt your fringe vest at your waist.

18. A fringe vest and a suede dress were basically made to be worn together.

19. A fringe vest looks fun and different with an embellished skirt. You can leave it like that if you want, or take it to the next level with cool sunglasses and a statement necklace.

20. Don’t be afraid to match your fringe vest to your shoes! The key is keeping the rest of the outfit simple so it’s not overwhelming.
