I have always loved waistcoats, whether on girls or on guys. For some reason, it attracts me. It looks fantastic on some guys (not all can pull it off I think), and also looks great when coupled with a suit of the right cut. A black pin-striped Gucci suit I saw in London comes to mind. Smokin’ hot. If it works, a 3-piece suit is definitely the way to go.
In any case, what I wanted was a waistcoat for me. I’ve always wanted one but a) don’t know how to wear it and never thought I could pull it off, b) didn’t think it was “my style” and c) the ones I’ve seen look rather tacky and I’ve never seen one I looked at and thought ‘AHA! I found you!’.
That is of course until yesterday.
A cropped tweed waistcoat with a fitted and tailored cut. The light was quite bright when I took the above pictures – the colour is actually a darker brown. This is something I would normally never think to buy, but I figured it was time to add something a little different to my mess-stricken-full-of-century-old-outfits wardrobe. It’s from Zara (www.zara.com), one of my favourite stores.
My sister said I shouldn’t have smiled because I’d look cooler and more “gangsta” – right now I just look cheesy.
The cheek. Always has to have an opinion! Though I think she is quite right. And next time, just a black tank top under the waistcoat might be nice. It was too cold today for that. Any other ideas on how to wear it?
Here’s a close-up of the necklace I was wearing because you can hardly see it in the photo. Is that gorgeous or is that gorgeous? I mean just look at the colours! Sometimes you’ve just gotta love the UK high street.
You can buy this at Accessorize (www.accessorize.com). They ship to the USA and many other countries. So check it out! I got this awhile ago but they’ve got tons of other pretty things, and if you’re a girl, you can’t help but love it.
I also got a hair cut today. New hair, new waistcoat. Not a bad day *wink*.
