Vest for The Summer


A trench coat, or duster, has always been a classic signature piece every woman should have in her closet. However, there’s only so many season’s a trench coat can be worn. Some trenches are too cold for the winter, and the temperatures are typically too warm for the summer. So what’s a person to do? Today, trenches have been altered and styled in different ways to fit trends and newer fashions. One way designers have changed this classic look up is going sleeveless. This vest is a staple of the season and was seen all over the streets in Paris for the fall couture shows last week. It’s a trend that brings professionalism to all the different styles of fashion. The versatility of this long vest is endless, and the sleeveless feature makes it perfect for summer!

This aesthetic has become a go to travel get-up for celebs and fashionistas. At the most recent fashion week, we spotted a burgundy red duster among many other stylish selections. Styled with a black, tank turtle neck, and festively patterned, high-waisted slacks, the outfit was an excellent option for an effortless outfit. The look was finished with black pumps, cross body,and mirrored sunnies to complete the casually chic ensemble. We’ve also seen this lengthy number paired with some ripped denim and basic tops; this along with neutral heels dresses it up for more important occasions. You can pair this piece with just about any garment in your wardrobe, so be sure to add the sleeveless signature to your closet. Stores like H&M, Zara, and Express all offer this style vest at an affordable price that will improve your summer-time style.
