Trend Alert: Vests

Vests are hot right now and this is one trend that will carry you through all of the seasons. Wear them long or short, bare or with a tee, tank or long sleeve top underneath. I love the look of a vest. They are easy to dress up (pair them with a skirt or basic pants) or be funky and accessorize your vest with a pair of low cut jeans and a long necklace. Here are a few that I've got my eye on:

Ya Ya's Double Breasted Denim Vest is adorable. It's cropped and funky. I especially like the big gold buttons (how cute would it be with gold ballet flats?) You can buy it here for $184.80.

Or there's this Joe Bush Vintage Tan and Brown Canvas Plaid Vest that Mischa wore on The O.C. It's on sale for $80 and you can buy it here. Oh, it's not really vintage it's actually new but the fabric is made from vintage men's pants. It's what makes them unique.

Two more, so

This corduroy vest from J.Crew is cute and reasonably well priced at $68. It comes in four colors, but I love this red one, since the splah of red is so in for Fall. Available here.

My favorite look of all, is this BCBG Max Azria "Nelly" Pinstripe Vest. It comes in navy "Midnight" blue with white stripes and it sells for $138. You can buy it here.

Hmm, I live in the the UK and vests (which we call waistcoats, which made this article a little confusing for me!) were huge last winter! It seems odd that they are taking off now in the US... I rather liked them but it would look really past-season if wore one now, everywhere has stopped selling them here!

i hardly see girls who would look alright wearing them. you always see middle aged women with kitties or Christmas trees on their vest. i hardly ever see anyone who looks amazing in them. don't get me started on leggings. they should be outlawed. sweatpants too.

Hush, crispet. My mind cannot process vests and leg warmers in one day.

What guys, you dont like the look? You dont want to bring leg warmers back too? You know thats next, dont you? What with all the starlets wearing these leggings, their ankles are bound to get a bit chilly.

NO NO NO NO NO! *shaking uncontrollably* First LEGGINGS, of all things, and now VESTS?!? This is enough to send me into a fashion psychosis complete with clawing at my hair and spewing nothing but profanities. Please, put the vests back in 1987 where they belong!

Bwahahaha, I knew they'd be back someday. I know exactly what I want, now I just have to go find it. But just one, because I realize that most vests are lame.

Certainly a dangerous trend.

I've been seeing vests everywhere. My eyes tell me they don't look that bad. But, my mind says NO NEVER AGAIN! I just can't bring myself to do it.

It takes a special woman to pull off this look. If done right, it doesnt look half bad.
