A Vest Can Class Up That Ratty Old Tee You Slept In Last Night
June 16, 2008
I bought a vest this weekend, and not because The New York Times told me they were cool. I swear, that was utter coincidence. I just happened to love the looks I've been eyeing on the streets lately – a casual, disheveled ensemble automatically classed up thanks to a simple black (or grey or white) vest. And there's something so sexy about adding this masculine touch to your feminine pieces – think super skinny jeans or a flowy summer dress. The combo is unexpected and just plain fierce. Dress up your basic tee with this 3-button pinstripe vest from Urban Outfitters ($30). Or opt for a crisp white version from the Gap ($49.50). If backless is more your style, then this Robert Rodriguez number ($188, was $288) would go perfectly with your favorite pair of jeans.
