Wardrobe Remix: One Item, Three Ways
White Blazer Vest
By Elizabeth McGuffin of With Wonder and Whimsy
Summer is the season of easy dressing. You want to stay cool, look polished, and keep it simple. The white blazer vest is summer’s answer to the spring jacket. It gives you the opportunity to layer without piling on the warmth. A vest adds dimension to your look, and a longline silhouette is effortlessly chic. Look for a tailored style in clean, crisp white. It’ll add polish and sophistication to your look , and the white is fresh and bright for summertime. You can wear the blazer vest open for a relaxed ease, or you can belt it for a fitted silhouette. And while it’s a perfect match for the office, go for the unexpected and layer it over a maxi dress or take it for a night on the town. The most interesting outfits come from taking a garment out of its normal environment and styling it for another vibe entirely.
|AT THE OFFICE
The all-white suit gets a summer refresh with this white blazer vest, split-front tank, and cropped trouser. Balance this structured look with a relaxed tassel necklace and perforated sandal.
|OUT AND ABOUT
For an unexpected weekend look, belt your blazer vest over a printed maxi dress. The sleek vest is a surprise contrast to the breezy, bohemian maxi.
|ON THE TOWN
The sharp blazer vest and high-heeled shootie take this swing tank and legging from simple to sexy. The vest lends effortless polish and sophistication to this head-turning going out look.
