The vest has shed its dusty old image and is now back as a fashionista favourite. Vests in bold colours are particularly promising: bright yellow, signal red or elegant green exude fresh charm. The sweater vest sticks to a tried-and-tested formula when it comes to cut and material: V-neckline, ribbed neckline and lambswool in a fine knit look.
What to wear with vests
These new high-fashion favourites go great with blouses in a classic men’s cut that poke out a little from underneath the vest. Wide trousers and trainers give the look a sporty touch. For a more elegant look, try pairing the vest with slim-fitting midi skirts – with printed patterns if possible – and knee-high boots with heels.
Exclusive fashion tip
A lot of creativity when mixing patterns is not just allowed, it’s very desirable. But when stripes meet checks and large floral prints meet tribal patterns, it can often become too colourful and too busy. A plain-coloured vest can work wonders here. It defuses wild pattern mixes and calms down the outfit a notch, without dominating it.
