What Are Your Thoughts On Womens Vests

What Are Your Thoughts On Womens Vests

I have shared my love for vests with you in the past. Womens vests have always been one of my favorite wardrobe pieces after jackets, but I have had a hard time finding vests for women in stores. On occasion, I have had to buy men’s vests in small sizes and have them altered to fit me. For this reason, whenever I come across a great women’s vest while shopping I make sure to grab it. The vest I am showing you today is one of those finds. I bought this beautiful hounds tooth vest a couple of years ago when I was visiting Miami. Besides the fact that I love the pattern, I also love the shape and the cut especially in the back. I have worn this vest in many different ways, but this time I decided to wear it with my wide leg trousers. I’ve been seeing a lot of wider leg pants coming back so I thought this would be a good time to pull out one of my favorites. Since the armhole of the vest is cut really low, you can wear any kind of top under it but I chose to wear a tank top because it is currently quite hot in Los Angeles, and I wanted to stay cool.

I have been working on some new jackets and blazers for women for Jacket Society and I have been thinking of adding some vests to the line, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to ask your opinion about vests. What do you think of women’s vests? Would you wear them? Of course you can also send me any comments or questions about my womens blazer line.

  1. Hi Nora
    I love women’s vests! I think too, they look great to show one’s figure, and waist. You look amazing in this vest. I like that it is longer and the proportions look really great with the wide pants. I used to wear vests, but like you, find it hard to find women’s ones in stores. I would love a few tweed ones for the fall, but it would probably need tailoring as I have a pretty small waist too. Your bag is fab as well, and you are a girl after my own heart with a drink in hand ! 🙂
    Have a great week,

  7. Love the monochrome look. I’ve pinned it!
    We call women’s vests waistcoats. I think they are a stylish and flattering way of wearing a masculine trend. As usual your outfit is fabulous. The vest is beautiful, especially the back of it and I just love your accessories – that handbag!! You look stunning.
