If cracking open the latest issue of Glamour at your desk is an office no-no, might I suggest clicking through Flickr for a little mid-day fashion inspiration. I spent some QT on the photo site last week and stumbled upon a few great photos of girls in vests. (I've got a few in my closet that need some freshening up. Right now, every time I see them I just think of the Girl Scouts uniform. Not cute!) For instance:New Yorker Anne upgraded the go-to weekend outfit of jeans and a sweatshirt by trading out a hoodie for the knit vest she made herself! (Impressive right?) If you're into Anne's style, you can find her at Another Shopgirl. The Coveted's Jennine of Frankfurt Germany dressed up a basic tan vest with a white-on-white look. (Granted, this one works best in mild climates like San Francisco, where the photo was taken, but even so, I like how she's both dressed up and dressed down at once.)
And last but not least, the charming Caroline and her playful vintage style caught my eye. I can't decide which of her looks I like best: the quilted '70s toggle vest with wide-leg jeans or the '80s denim vest over a kicky plaid dress. (She knows her way around retro styles...she and a friend have a cool vintage shop on Etsy!)What about you? Which look do you like best? Did seeing these photos make you re-think vests? Are you as enchanted by Flickr fashion as I am?
How about this great $50 & Under find from Target? It's a perfect way to wear this trend well into winter.
