I really did try to avoid the vest trend, and went to pretty extreme measures to defend my position. I mocked those that wore them. I turned my nose up at every style I came across in stores. But in the end, I seem to have been persuaded by the hordes of women sporting this masculine look. I particularly like Lux’s Menswear Vest, whose name speaks for itself, and maintains a femininity in the streamlined silouette, thanks to the adjustable buckle in the back. Though I’ve certainly embraced the trend, I still wouldn’t pair it with a t-shirt as shown in the picture, but rather with a floral dress with lots of bracelets and some sandals that no man would ever be caught wearing.
