I’ve been thinking about vest and waistcoats for a while now and given my small frame, it has crossed my mind on several occasions to head to a tailor and have a couple made. I think they add a certain zing to an outfit. They can be used to dress up a shirt and jeans combo or add layer to a pants and shirt look.
This charcoal grey waistcoats from Helmut Lang is simple and versatile. I am liking the clean lines courtesy of the covered button placket and the slash pockets. Though this looks less formal and more causal because of the hidden buttons, this still makes for a good piece to add panache to your outfit.
The grey shade will go with most everything in your work wardrobe and will look swell come the weekend too. Pair it with either tees or shirts – quick and easy.
