Oh, hello there!You were expecting a full outfit post right? No No! The full post for the picture up there will be up later. I just wanted to gush about my love for waistcoats (a.k.a vests) today in this post and share a bit of style inspiration for my ladies that want to get the hang of rocking one.
It isn't news that I have a
I think a waist coat is another quick way to spice up a basic outfit especially if you pick out a bright colored/printed one.
My love for them started with that little black one I got during my first year in university. Back then, they were all the rave, remember ?
Some came in form of an halter neck, others had a back but one thing they all had in common was that they were fitted and got buttoned below the bust.
My style has definitely evolved since then and I probably won't be caught dead wearing a really fitted waist coat in this present time.
I added a grey one with this lace up thing at the back after that black one, then my brown one with the stripes back in 2010 or so( I still have them but hardly wear them again).
I've added a few more but my favorite as you all can guess will remain this mustard one that I'm forever wearing and will forever wear.
I don't think enough females wear waistcoats (especially in a slightly casual and not fully androgynous way - three piece suit and all : the Janelle monae/Ashley Owens way) because I finished my data yesterday googling "female fashion waistcoat vest street style" and didn't come up with much. Chei
So I decided to share some of my previous 'vested' looks and the few I got off the internet as a sort of style inspiration.
I started from the oldest look (minus this one) so please forgive the poor picture quality in some. I'll put the link to the full post below too so you can read some of the gist behind the outfit and my life back then.
Let's dig in!
