How to Wear a Military Vest

If I had to name one thing in my wardrobe that has gotten worn more than anything else, it's my military vest. It has been so versatile!  Today I thought I'd share some ways I've worn it, and I have some great options down below for you, if you'd don't have a military vest for yourself yet.

One way I love to wear it in winter is with a scarf and sweater, like seen below.
