5 Adventure Challenge: My Year-Round Capsule Wardrobe Staple

Styling five different outfits in my new Summer Cardigan Vest.

By Victoria Vitale

New sweater alert! Oliver Charles has done it again and has created your next favorite clothing item in your closet. Using yak wool and the same 3D-knitting process we know and love, a button down sweater vest was created.

A vest is the perfect way to elevate any outfit, and I can’t wait to show you how I styled this new sweater.

I took the 5 Adventure Challenge, which unlocked a new level of creativity and allowed me to get out and have fun adventures.

This sweater vest is definitely something you need in your closet because you can wear it all year long, and there are so many ways to style it. My hope is that when you add this to your closet, my outfit ideas will inspire you.

Dinner With My Mom

Summertime is in full effect, and today was the perfect opportunity to wear my sweater vest with a pair of jeans and a lot of accessories for dinner with my mom.

I love how I was able to wear layered gold necklaces and a headband with this outfit. It was a casual evening out, and the jeans and sandals were perfect for the occasion.

The Summer Cardigan Vest is the perfect piece to add to my closet because it can stand alone and be worn by itself, but as you see in my other outfits, it can be used to elevate other pieces in my closet.

This is such an easy outfit to throw on and head out the door, and I really like that this sweater vest will become a staple in my closet.

Time for me to get out and start checking things off my to-do list. I came up with the perfect outfit that is stylish and comfortable. I took the Summer Cardigan Vest and wore it over a white t-shirt. I paired this combo with distressed denim shorts, sneakers, and a gold necklace.

When running around town, the last thing I want to be is uncomfortable, and this outfit is anything but that. I can definitely see myself wearing this outfit combo all of the time. I felt extremely confident in it, and I was able to get everything done on my list easily.

I also like how it can easily be tucked into my shorts because I have a habit of wearing all my tops like that. This will be an outfit that is on repeat for sure!

A Comfortable Sweater For Date Night

I love that the Summer Cardigan Vest can be dressed up or down, making it perfect for any occasion you might have coming up. I had a dinner date night out to get pizza.

I picked one of my favorite dresses from my closet and wore the sweater vest open like a cardigan over it. I think the denim dress matches perfectly with the color of the vest, and I paired this outfit with some wedges and a simple necklace to dress it up.

I can see myself reaching for this outfit over and over again. I love creating new outfits that become ones I want to wear all of the time.

Oliver Charles creates great pieces that become staples in your wardrobe and help elevate other clothing items in your closet.

Retail Therapy

Sometimes, you have a bad week and need some retail therapy to help you get through it. That is exactly what happened this week, and I decided to treat myself.

For this day, I decided to wear my Oliver Charles Cardigan Vest over a white tube top with a denim skort. I wore sandals and a gold necklace to complete the look. I felt girly in this outfit and ready to shop until I dropped.

It was great wearing a piece of clothing such as the Oliver Charles Cardigan Vest, which inspired me to create so many new outfits while out shopping for new items to add to my closet. I felt creative about each piece I picked up and could picture how I would style it in the future.

Time To Relax

I try to find some time to relax and take time for myself to unwind or start the day on a good note. I woke up, and the weather was really nice, so I decided to take my blanket out to lay on the grass and read a book.

I knew I wanted to be insanely comfortable, so this was the most leisurely outfit I had in my closet. I wore an athletic romper with my Undyed Summer Cardigan Vest over it with some socks and sandals.

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes because it allows me to escape reality. The sweater vest was perfect for this morning because there was a slight breeze.

Oliver Charles was able to take their yak wool printing process and create a garment that is even more perfect for year-round wear. I know I’ll be reaching for this sweater vest all the time; it’s the perfect addition to my wardrobe.
