Menswear Inspired Vests

If you read my blog with any consistency you probably realize I love my vests. They make a great layer, can add texture, color, and warmth to your outfit. Typically I add my puffer vests, but I have a few menswear inspired ones as well. This is a new one I picked up over winter break while thrifting with a friend. I know menswear inspired aren't as popular and I don't see them often in stores, but I couldn't help picking this up. Vests like these can make a great layer underneath blazers. The pink would work with navy, khaki, black, or even a gray blazer. I can't wait to remix it!

Do you own any menswear inspired vests? How do you wear them?

  2. I have a couple of Menswear-inspired Vests myself. I really like your fresh take on this look. Despite the masculine vest, you made this Outfit totally feminine with the Light Pink Blouse & all the Ruffles. That Skirt is so cute. Great photos as usual. Loving you on the first one. Your hair and makeup are looking real pretty, also. =)

  4. I was going to say that I haven't seen them in stores, but I know you have some and they look wonderful! You balanced the menswear piece so perfectly here with the ruffled skirt, pink shirt, and heels.
