Vests have made a true comeback in recent years, going from their traditional roles as formal attire to become a fashionable piece in both men’s and women’s wardrobes. They are versatile and offer a unique way to add depth, texture, and sophistication to any outfit, so we understand why they are so popular. Whether your style is more casual or formal, vests will offer you endless possibilities for creative and fun outfits. In this article, we will explore the rising popularity of vests and give you some tips on how to style them.

Casual day

One of the reasons vests have gained popularity is their versatility and the way you can dress them up or down. For a casual, everyday look, pair a denim vest with a plain t-shirt or a patterned shirt. This creates a relaxed and effortlessly cool vibe. Combine it with a pair of well-fitted jeans for a balanced outfit. If you want to get more femininity out of a vest, go for a flowy, bohemian-inspired vest and pair it with a floral dress or a blouse and wide-leg trousers. Both of these outfits are casual and perfect for any errands you wanna run.

Formal events

When it comes to formal or business settings, vests can be an excellent alternative to a traditional suit jacket, or to a dress. This is a great way to go for an original approach to elegant outfits. You wanna look for a fitted, structured vest as these stunning Irish waistcoats  in a classic color and wear it over a tailored shirt. You can even get a vest from the men’s section. Combine it with carrot pants or a pencil skirt to achieve a stylish and professional outfit. For the same effect, but a more feminine approach, go for a vest on its own and pair it with some wide leg trousers. This will add that touch of sexy to your event outfit.


Now that we’ve covered the others, let’s get to the real deal: layering is where vests truly shine. During colder months, vests can be layered over sweaters, turtlenecks, or button-down shirts to provide extra warmth while maintaining a stylish aesthetic. A puffer vest paired with a chunky knit sweater and skinny jeans, for example, will get you a warm and very fashionable outfit. For a daily office look go for a longer and loose vest over a simple shirt and get that extra warmth while having an amazing outfit. Vests are great for layering during the summer as well, as long as you go for linen or silk for a more breathable feel.
