Trend Alert: His Vest

There are quite a few things we are taking from "the man" this Spring. We first saw it with a vengeance on the Spring/Summer runways and then we dabbled in menswear inspired accessories. I'd have to say I'm pretty excited for his vests. Vests are a cute cover up that add tailoring to a look and this Spring you can wear a vest preppy, striped or sporty - buttoned up or loosely open. Just keep the rest of the look flowy, so you don't look too buttoned up. Here's some suggested styling that proves vests are not too masculine and way modern.


(L-R: Rag & Bone, Chanel, Derek Lam S/S '07)

To see my vest picks,

J.Crew Seersucker vest, $68.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Cecile Stripe Vest, on sale for $100 (originally $250). I have this vest and I love it!

LaROK Zippy Breaker, $148.

i really like this but how do you wear it if you are not comfortable with you arms?

I really thought that we were all getting out of the menswear trend and getting into more feminine styles...?

It's not new - I've got this denim vest I bought in Osaka. Wear it with casual beach dress, tank with tailored bermudas and sky high platform wooden wedges or just a vintage tee with jeans.

I actually really do like vests... but I don't think it's a "new style" by any means. I made a vest similar to the blue style but in a nice denim type material. It's not my favorite style, but I don't think it's hard on the eyes.

This shouldnt be an alert, this style is months old.

Bearbizzle - ha ha ha - too funny. I couldn't agree more. I think the vest is one of those things that only works for waifs. :(

we all should learn from the classic "Mean Girls" quote... Regina: "Whatever. Those rules aren't real." Karen: "They were real that day I wore a vest!" Regina: "Because that VEST WAS DISGUSTING!"

I wore vests already, so I'll hit this trend again the next go round. And what is with the freaky pose the last model is doing?
