To Vest or Not to Vest

We are seeing a lot of vests on the fashion landscape lately. My pal Amber seems to like them and most recently thrifted a blue beauty and layered it over a cowl neck tunic. I have seen them layered on top of one another, and I have also seen them worn over a skimpy tank top or with nothing at all. I must admit, the vest reminds me of 80s alternative rock bands, but I was unable to find a good picture, so check out this 80s cover band I came across for a really good laugh. Vests are popular again due to the strong menswear influence this season but don't invest (ha,ha) too much as this may be a passing trend. Here are some of my current vested inspirations:

I could work this - vest over big warm turtleneck sweater. I love the shoes and doesn't yinse resemble Hillary Duff here?

Little black shortie vest worn casually with a white tee, jeans and black pumps. So chic and pulled together by thoseshoes.aremine

Polished yet feminine - love the neutrality, the layers, a la The Coveted.

So how do you wear your vest? Or is this a trend that you will surely pass by?

I don't have any vests... but I like the look of the last photo. This might mean that I need to go shopping.

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

I am a bit of a vest fan, I must admit. I wear little else all summer . But I have never tried wearing them over things in the winter. Perhaps I should?
I shall have to go and lie down now though - I had no idea the 80s had ended. When did that happen?
Brilliant vid by the way.
