Hi ladies! Today is time for a piece that’ll always help you to rock your look. Because no matter what, a vest is one of the most used to create a fashionably rock outfit. If you go to concerts and follow some rock bands, you sure have noticed that they’re often wearing them. Of course they’re making a real statement with a vest. They usually wear it with nothing underneath (or with rock/metal tees), and they adorn it with studs, patches and safety pins. They probably buy it already done this way. But they have a lifestyle that allows every kind of excess, specially with their outfits.
As you know, I like to keep it rock in a fashionably way. Most of us rock girls, have a job that doesn’t allow any excess at all, and a lot of us wants to still follow trends and be appreciated for our style. Therefore, I rather leave the crazy outfits for concerts and rock pubs, and keep the fashion side of the rock world for my daily things. Luckily, the fashion world is still loving a bit of studs and chains in its collections. But, as I always say, you can find a bit of rock in every single brand. You just have to train your eyes.
I’ve been wearing every kind of vest since I was a teen. Even when I was a kid, but that was mum’s choice so it doesn’t count ;P. I still buy them and I still wear them, of course. A nice thing of them is also that they won’t lose their fit easily. Wearing a vest opened on a tee always fit, and always gives that little touch of something.
To score your outfit tho, you should keep an eye on cuts, lines and textures. There are 2 ways: one is a statement outfit with a plain vest; the other is a plain outfit with a statement vest. If you go for a plain total look with a simple lined vest, you’re still cool to me -and I do it sometimes – but it is more tricky to make it rock. Anyways, the most important thing is that you dress properly for the occasion. Just keep some vests in your closet ;).
The most important thing to say is… vests are back! This March they’re on the fashion magazines, so this is the perfect time to start your research!
