A key shape to look out for this autumn is the sleeveless vest or gilet. It is the perfect layering solution when the temperature starts to drop, providing just enough warmth without being overbearing.

Vests are a great style to choose if you want to disguise many perceived figure flaws – such as a big tummy, wide hips or a large bust. Keep an eye out for the right length for your body type. This season there are plenty of long-line vests which can elongate the body, but be careful that they are not too long to swamp a smaller frame. If this is the case, opt for a mid-length vest.

Keep your accessories to a minimum with a scarf or statement necklace and let the vest take centre stage. Wear your vest with a basic 3/4 or long sleeve tee and slim fit pants.

Do you wear vests? Which style above is your favourite?

 

  1. I must admit that I’ve been wearing long-line vest/cardi-coats for a while, although not here in Queensland. But Kay’s photo has given me an idea for my boots -bought in Flagstaff, Arizona last year on Route 66, I’ve now got an alternative combo from my original thoughts on what to wear with them – similar colour. Love vests in cooler weather.

  2. Yea, do love watching these pic’s, and seeing the latest gear and how you wearing it. Thanks for sharing…From Up Grading MaMa…
