Why do we ignore the vest? What has the vest ever done to us, but be chic and simple and layer-able? No, you won't look like an old school journalist wearing one or like you're trying too hard. Unless of course, you are an old school journalist or trying too hard.
Here's a round up of some great vests available now.
Chloe Shearling Biker Vest... Dear gawd, why can't you be mine?
Howsa' 'bout a moto vest instead of moto jacket? This one is over-sized (jacket length for warmth) and belted! Very styley and affordable. Zara
I call this "lab-coat" chic. Helmut Lang collarless vest, slim, minimal, directional, WHITE!
A vest for the evening you say? Zara's got that.
Day or night, architectural, structured. All good words no? Isabel Marant
Some vests are born cooler than other vests. This is one of them. Also a great example of wearing a vest as your top, with nothing under. Although, I would balance the skin on top, with some masculine androgynous pant. You know me... Iro also available in white.
