#MyGrafic: Vest Fri, Dec 04, 2015

While there's many unlikable aspects of the winter, one we appreciate is the outfits the cold forces us to create. Layering creates dimension and allows for a mix of materials and colours. 


The lightweight vest is one we'd like to bring attention to. On its own, this piece has an eye-catching element with quilted detailing. Diamond patterns add a bit more sophistication while stripes are more common. An overall more casual piece, use it to dress down a formal look, such as under your blazer. 


The vest adds a layer of warmth without a fussy fit due to the sleeveless feature. When layering under a coat, the sleeves tend to first be the tightest. This also allows for an open front look, which is clean and stylish.  Try also layering over a jacket for a modern twist. The nylon material of most quilted vests will contrast leather jackets and wool coats. The subtle peek of the mix of materials is a highly modern touch. There can also be a play on colour - imagine a camel peacoat over a navy vest.


Whether on it’s own or layered, the lightweight vest is a practical and stylish piece for your winter wardrobe.
