Great Minds

Tank, Mossimo. Vest (aka boobcoat) and cami, Charlotte Russe. Trouser jeans, Express. Pumps, Delicious. Necklace, Forever 21. Owl ring, Sin City. Bag, Nicole Lee.

I planned this outfit on Sunday at maybe around the same time Angie was thinking about writing this post on sleeveless tops worn with waistcoats. The trend has been around for a few years, but more as a fringe fashion. In the past, I dismissed the combo as too unprofessional and chilly for the office. But, I’ve since noticed no shortage of bare arms at the workplace and I have a jacket (and lunchtime kickboxing class) to stay warm.


I paired this vest and chiffon tank together once before (with a long-sleeved tee underneath). I like it better today.

Your hair looks awesome , you had it touched-up, didn't you? I really like the waist-coat combo. Right On! :)

I love this look on you -- you have beautiful toned arms; there's no reason you shouldn't show them off! I think a waistcoat that's as fitted as this one always has a polished look, even over a sleeveless top.

dress & vest the best.

Oooh, this is one of my favorites! Everything about it is just great. It's totally figure flattering, stylish, and funky. I love the yellow shoes w/ the bag. Great contrast.

That's a very nice way to wear a vest. I also happened to just posted an article on How To Wear A Vest in 4 Different Ways, maybe you can take a look at it and give some comments or suggestions:
