Fall Fashion Staples...and then some...the vested interest

So the vest has been in for centuries, as far back as the 17th century England with the reign of Charles II. The sleeveless garment that is worn over some type of shirt has increased in popularity ever since. At times, men’s vests were considered an indispensable part of men's wardrobes making both a style statement and providing functionality. Then at the turn of the 20th Century men's vest played a major role in business suits and formal wear.
Well what does this have to do with you, you ask? Well I'm gonna tell you...we women have taken a lot of men's wear and turned into major fashion statements over the past century, and this season with a comeback to a more masculine concept, vests play a role once again.
They are shown in many shapes, sizes, colors, textures and worn in a varietal of ways. long and fury to cozy up in, light weight versions as an accent, vest trench coats as a fashion statement...the list goes on. Have fun with it, take a vested interest this season and one to your closet...
I chose to pair my sweater vest with denim and gave it an edgy twist with
leather pants and then softened it with mules.
