Vests are one of my favorite items of clothing that I never wear. I buy them and promptly forget about them. I blame that because they are usually small and then when I fold them, they get lost in my piles of shirts I put over them! But when I do remember and I try to wear them, it just never seems to work with the outfit. But, we will see about this season as I'm going to try to wear them more often. They are such a good piece to add to an outfit because you can wear them with nice trousers, over a casual tee and even a dress. It's not something that I see a lot of people wear but when I do see it, I always think it looks great.
If you look through my lookbook, I obviously love blazers so of course fell in love with this as it's basically a blazer without the sleeves! This would look great with a plain tee, dark skinnies or even leggings.
I have a couple of menswear style vests that I wear with button down shirts and I always think I end up looking like a waiter. HA! I'm going to start styling them differently, I guess we will have to see if they end up on a lookbook... :)
P.S. speaking of vests, check out how adorable Hanako of Through the Looking Glass is in her Francis vest. Love!
