How to choose the vest

fashion over fifty Not Only Twenty

Today I want to talk to you about a particular item: the vest.

Men’s clothing, which is now in disuse, is most often offered in a female version. Vest reappraisal is endless, from the short waistcoat to wear as a top to the long vest, passing through the middle. We’ve seen it in rock style in the post Long vest? In a rock way or in the short model in the post  Black, white and many shades of gray.

Depending on the model chosen, the vest has different peculiarities.

The long wool fabric vest can be worn as a sleeveless coat, the short one in silk or cotton can be paired with a shirt or put on as a top.

The different ways to wear a vest

The vest by Dries Van Noten I chose today is a garment that can be worn in many ways.

Because this is possible it must have these characteristics: the fabric must not be too heavy or too light, it must be long enough under the knee and have buttons (or zips) that allow it to close.

With these features the vest can be used as a dress, with the ability to put under a tulle top, or as you like, to make it warmer with tights or boots. Otherwise you can wear it as a coat on top or shirt and trousers or on a short skirt to create the effect see/don’t see or on much longer and larger one to achieve the effect similar to a ruffle that comes out.

The final outfits will be so different that it will look like to have more pieces in the closet instead of one.

What I show you is in satin cotton, double breasted and revers.

I chose to wear it as a dress, considering the beautiful days this autumn is giving us.

Having a light background with flowers in the shades of green, gray and yellow, I combine the green cult gaia bag and sandals with transparent heels with golden scales. For a more autumnal look I put under it a net top.
