3 Ways to Wear a Vest

by Chloe Wilshere, Content Creator

The past year has had an interesting effect on the way we see our wardrobes, highlighting the pieces we reach for the most and those we barely touch.

If we’ve learnt anything, it’s that few items are as versatile as a classic vest top.

Vest tops are a reliable essential and a core part of our wardrobes all-year round.

Don’t just take it from us… Lucy Hale, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner are just a few of the famous faces that are major advocates of the wardrobe staple.

And, while you can never beat a classic white vest, the season’s slew of new shapes, styles and prints are here to bring an extra something to your wardrobe. So, if you’re looking for new ways to wear a vest, we’ve rounded up three different ways to do it, whatever your style or plan.

1. 90s Revival

We love a classic white vest. But why go for classic when you can go bold?

Offering ‘90s nostalgia with a Hawaiian twist, this blue floral racer vest is the perfect rival to your go-to white tee.

Keep up the ‘90s nostalgia and make it an outfit All Saints would be proud of by styling with blue cargo-style baggy-fit jeans, white chunky trainers and a perfect everyday white bumbag. Accessorise with a claw clip, ‘90s rectangle sunglasses and silver chunky hoop earrings.

2. 9-5 Style

September is fast approaching, and, for many, this means a long-awaited return to the office. After spending so long only dressing our top half, we’re finally having to think about our top-to-toe outfits for the first time in forever.

Just because you’ve been wearing vests all year on Zoom, it doesn’t mean you should rule them out for your return to office. Go head-to-tonal by styling a camel racerback vest with stone straight-leg chinos and an off-white checked shacket. Nail your 9-5 look by accessorising with white slingback stilettos and the perfect-sized stone-toned bag to carry all your back-to-work essentials.

3. Date Night

Whether it’s your first or your 100th, dressing for date night can be complicated – you want to wow while also feeling comfy and confident. But there’s one cult item we all have in our wardrobes that’s perfect: a classic white vest.

Just because you’ve lounged in it with your joggers over the past year doesn’t mean it can’t wow on a date. Keep a white racerback vest sophisticated by styling with our pink ditsy-floral satin midi skirt and layer up with a classic black oversized blazer. Put your best foot forward with white ‘90s kitten heel mules, and don’t forget some arm candy with our black woven chain-strap shoulder bag ✨.
