the very vest


Introducing the next act in the layering movement: vests over dresses.  Suddenly, I am seeing this look everywhere, and, in my opinion, it's a styling trick worth trying out, particularly when summer-to-fall's transitional weather ping pongs in. To pull it off perfectly, you have to counterbalance the oversize menswear-like vest with a soft, feminine dress (or blouse and skirt). Here are some vests to consider by Alexander Wang, Club Monaco, Helmut Lang, Alice + Olivia, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and J Brand.

LOVE this trend. I am a native New Yorker who now lives in Georgia. Fall/winter here doesn't allow for much layering, because it doesn't get very cold. These sleeveless vest
are PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you SO much for this post!

Is this a trend for fall too?

Yes, vests, both long and short, were shown on the fall runways and are now bound to hit the streets!
