Vests as Shirts

There are very few style tips that I adhere to. However, there are a few that have rung true year after year. Adding a belt to something can completely change the structure of a garment. That’s where vests as shirts come in. Vests are just one belt away from becoming a shirt. Much like a blazer is one belt away from becoming a dress. The trick is to find a vest large enough that you can belt it and still have some wiggle room to create drape & volume. I chose this striped woven vest that gave me big bathmat energy. As the armholes were a little bit larger, the outfit had two sides of sideboob but I was into it.

I hope after this you will begin to look at belts as a tool to expand existing items in your wardrobe! For more posts including vests (worn in their natural state) check out: Queen Street West, A Double Denim Day, and In the Belly of the Snake. Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂
