Designers and magazine editors may feel they dictate your fall/winter fashion choices, but honestly, geography plays an influential part as well. Not every fashionable diva driven by uptown style, lives in cold weather during the months of October thru March.
Those in the southern regions that have a mild to warm winter, yearn for a hint of fall and winter because the clothes are so luscious. The cure? A vest. It gives you two things, a touch of F/W layering, and a slimming effect as it draws the eye into the center of your body to thin out your image. Win-win! Of course you’re thinking the traditional menswear tailored vest, but here are a few options.If you feel more comfortable covering your bum, this long grey cashmere belted vest by Inhabit is a great choice.
This fun waist length vest uses two trends of the moment, plaid and ruffle. Love this buffalo plaid vest from the Gap, flirty and versatile. Pair with jeans for super casual or black for something more appropriate for office chic.
I adore the military look and this vest is one of my faves. Rocking roll or urban chic….wear it how you want and enjoy. Michael by Michael Kors, yummmm.
Chic, flattering, stylish and on point. A little taste of the season for my glam sisters living in the mild country and those who live in cold weather, nice option to the “de regulier” of sweaters and jackets. In addition, depending on the cut and style, a vest can also act as a corset and now with stretch fabric, it will suck you in…in a more comfortably fashionable way.
Long live the vest……..a girl’s secret friend.
